Ship Facts: Queen of the West Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen of the West Deck Plans
Queen of the West
A grand old lady refurbished several times but in great shape. If you are looking for music, dancing and lavish entertainment, you are on the wrong cruise.

We embarked from Clarkston, WA for a very interesting and informative almost 500 mile journey to Portland, OR. The staterooms are small but adequate for 2 with a decent shower; and a small balcony. Two large public rooms and a very small Library. As we were on the river for much of the time, the large viewing area on the top deck (covered and uncovered) was very adequate. Only 4 decks with stairs and a small elevator. The Queen holds about 120 of the most enjoyable passengers I have ever had the pleasure of cruising with; and we got to meet them all from almost all 50 states at meals (open seating) and cocktail hour which includes top drawer liquor and wines.

Food was very good; and you can choose smaller portions if you desire. The service was outstanding by the stewards, wait staff, crew and the Captain who was always available. This jaunt followed the Lewis & Clarke expedition and Todd our expert and guide seemed to have known them personally. Tours were very interesting and informative handled expertly by our cruise director. Mount St. Helen's was a MUST SEE! While aboard and cruising we went through several locks which dropped us almost 100 feet at each location; quite a sight and photo op as was the wind and kite surfers at the Columbia Gorge. All in all an experience I would strongly recommend.
