Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2018

We had driven through the Columbia Gorge, but wanted to see it up close at a gentle pace.

Our trip started in Spokane. One night at the Historic Davenport Hotel was included in the trip. We opted for an extra night and were glad about that. The Historic Davenport Hotel is a destination in its own right.

Registration was at the hotel. The next day we went by bus to Clarkston, where we boarded the Empress. We had a "deluxe veranda stateroom" which was cozy but efficient.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

180 square feet (including the veranda, I think). Room enough for everything, but no extra space. Clean, well maintained.
