  3. Queen of the West
I have always wanted to travel the Columbia River, so, my husband and I brought along two other couples to enjoy our trip. It was a great trip the river was beautiful, the weather cooperated and we had sunshine nearly the whole trip which is unusual for that part of the country. Loved the entertainment both the musicians and the on board historian. Learned so much about the area including the animals. He was well informed about the salmon fishing and the rules governing it. Our room was wonderful with four large windows to look out and see the river and the beautiful scenery on both side of the banks. The sunset one evening was unbelievably beautiful. It must be wonderful to live along the banks of the Columbia River especially when the sun is out. I understand that it rains in that area a great deal of the time.

It was delightful and the weather was great. The crew were outstanding.
