We enjoy river cruises as opposed to ocean cruises. We enjoy the silence of the river, and the history surrounding it. On this Lewis and Clark themed cruise along the Snake and Columbia Rivers in Washington and Oregon, we relived a most important part of our nations past, forged in part by these two infamous explorers. Great shore excursions and presentations by the River Historian added to the experience.

The hospitality of the ship and crew was outstanding. The food and drink was excellent.

It should be noted that the Queen of the West is the line's oldest ship and the rooms and bathroom are smaller than newer ships. But so little time is spent in the room, we found the accommodations to be adequate. The one difficulty was a high step into the bathroom which may be difficult for an elderly person.

Cabin Review

Cabin AA

Cabin small with queen bed. Two small end tables and dresser adequate for clothing. Small but adequate sized closet. Television set. Bathroom the small type on old cruise ships. Two large picture windows.
