A lovely casual cruise for active adults. I did see some people who preferred the museums and other less active activities. Food was good but not French cuisine. You could ask for something not on the menu and they did their best to fill your request. The activities were plentiful, educational and all included in the price of the expedition. There was different levels of activities offered so one can choose what they wanted to do. We had naturalists,Historians and Natural Geographic photographers on board to-instruct help any of our needs. We traveled through 8 waterway locks as we descended from the high desert areas to the mouth of the Pacific Ocean. The only drawback for those with physical limitations seemed to be the lack of an elevator. The staff was always willing to help. This trip was unique in that it had unlimited wine, beer and even hard liquor with a bartender who knowledgeable of the craft beers and wines of the region. We visited a winery and a a local beer manufacturer.

A Lewis and Clark Journey. Great time for the active adults.

Cabin Review

Cabin 206
Our first room 105 had no heat and we were transferred to a smaller but very nice smaller room that had more sink space. They gave us a refund for the change in rates. We were very happy with the new room that had many places to store luggage.

This is an older ship that has been refurbished. Just perfect for a Lewis and Clark expedition, a casual, very active cruise.
