  3. Queen of the West
My 92 year old mom wanted to do this, so my sister and I took her. It was wonderful. We stayed in Room 401 on Queen of the West, which held the three of us easily. (They moved out the large bed and gave us three twins: perfect!) Mom's vision is very limited, so it was mostly about staying aboard and enjoying the time together as we leisurely moved along the Columbia River. The room had a refrigerator, Keurig, sofa, desk, easy chairs...was so comfortable, and the view from our picture windows (on both sides of the room/ship) so delightful that we were able to comfortably be in the room with mom as needed during the day. Food was so delicious, and portions were appropriate (you could ask for half portions). Late afternoon cocktail hour (with appetizers) provided the time to mingle with other guests as desired. Service was delightful...any request we made was quickly accommodated, and we felt pampered. The hotel the night before (Red Lion) was very nice, with a good restaurant on site. Boarding/deboarding went smoothly and efficiently. We would definitely do this again!!!

Great food, staff, comfort

Cabin Review

Cabin 401
Wonderfully large room with views through picture windows on both sides of the ship. Totally private deck on one side (with table, and several chairs) and mostly private on the other side as well. (People could walk by, but rarely did. Near the elevator. Stocked with wine, juices, water, and snacks. Keurig in the room. Bathroom small but adequate. Sofa, 2 easy chairs and a desk with coffee table...made playing cards, etc. easy.
