June 2022 - My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (25+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our second river cruise on American Cruise Lines. Our Columbia and Snake Rivers cruise started on June 9 in Clarkston, Washington. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early, June 6, so we could enjoy the Lewiston, ID and Clarkston, WA areas. We stayed ...

Review: American Cruise Lines, American Song, June 5 through June 12, 2022 Our experience on American Cruise Line’s ship the American Song was a wonderful experience. It was both relaxing, enjoyable, and fun to be pampered. The scenery of mountains, as well as seeing the Columbia and Snake Rivers was beautiful and at times breath-taking. We enjoyed waking up to sit out on our deck each morning ...

We hadn’t seen much of the northwest US so we decided to try the American Cruise Line Harmony's cruise from Portland, Oregon to Clarkston, Washington on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The ship is small and only had 150 passengers on our trip. We were in Room 308, a comfortable two room suite with a small balcony. I think it was next to the captain's cabin and the bridge was just beyond that. ...

If you DON'T care about the scenery . . . or the service . . . or the food . . . or the lectures . . . or the cost. . . go ahead, book. ITINERARY: The itinerary we bought was a full day cruising the Snake and several hours on the Gorge. The company eliminated both. "Rolling river views," only available if you left the ship and rented a kayak. SERVICE: We had to call for replacement of ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We loved this cruise! The Pacific Northwest is a beautiful place to cruise with spectacular scenery and some very interesting history as well. American Cruise Lines did an excellent job of showing off this scenery as well as making the history come alive with the resident historian, Bill. The excursions were fun and informative as we got to see in person the places we were learning about as we ...

Currently sailing on the recently refurbished American West. Saw previous negative reviews and was hesitant, but cruise line said it was being fully refurbished. It is lovely! Definitely has the charm of an old-fashioned paddle wheel boat. Carpets, furnishings, furniture, linens, shower curtain… are all very nice. Exceeded our expectations! All staff members have gone above and beyond to meet any ...

We sailed from Portland, OR (Hayden Island) making a call at a different location each day Astoria, OR, Kalama, WA, Stevenson, WA, The Dalles, OR, Richland, WA and Clarkston, WA, tracing the steps of Lewis and Clark. Our passengers disembarked and in 3 hours we were loading another set of passengers for a return to Portland. We arrived back at Hayden Island again disembarked and had new passengers ...

Cruising on American waterways has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Taking a 10 day cruise along the Columbia and Snake Rivers didn’t disappoint. Cruising past lush forests, cascading waterfalls and quaint towns while sitting on your balcony was amazing. Accommodations were spacious with ample amenities and storage. Escorted excursions allowed me to discover the rich heritage and ...

More time in port, less time cruising than on our European river cruises

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We booked the Northwest Pioneers Cruise because we wanted to visit as many sites along the Columbia and Snake Rivers as we could, and the shorter cruises required us to make too many exclusions of one excursion in favor of another! We were also attracted by the all-inclusive nature of the cruise, i.e., at least one included excursion at every port of call, no additional charges for alcoholic ...
