We have taken cruises before, but this was exceptional. Not only was the scenery, excursions and boat travel wonderful, the service was beyond compare. You could tell many of the servers were college students in the service field. They were ready for every request and were always extremely gracious. I walked away in awe, thinking this cannot be matched. We shall see. We will surely take another cruise with this cruise line. My wife does not like big waves on the open ocean, so this solved that problem. We enjoyed the history of the river, with lots of information on Lewis and Clark. The ports were very welcoming with many interesting sites. We started in the desert areas of eastern Washington and Oregon and finished in Astoria, on the Pacific coast. We took a trip to Mount Saint Helens, the Gorge with waterfalls, huge dams and more. We were able to walk around the port cities, and the locks were quite a drop. I believe some of the biggest drops of any locks in the world.

Amazing service

Not the best part of the trip, but most of the travel was at night, so it was fine for sleeping.
