We had always wanted to do the Lewis & Clark Columbia River Trip. American Cruise Line's American Pride river boat provided such an opportunity.
Although the ship is dated and shows some wear and tear, we rate the trip as EXCELLENT!!! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was super and the shore trips fantastic..
This trip is a bit expensive but it is "all inclusive". It which includes all alcohol (beer, wine & cocktails), tips and most shore excursions.
