Lots of history and terrain changes

Review for American Harmony to U.S.A.

A great chance to learn more about Lewis & Clark's expedition from a knowledgeable historian. He was a fun and interesting presenter with lots of photos. The evening entertainers were, for the most part, not our cup of tea but lots of folks seemed to really enjoy them. We were quite comfortable relaxing in our room or in on of the many lounge areas. The Snake & Columbia Rivers locks were quite ...

This was our second cruise on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington with ACL. The views and locks are spectacular and the pace is very relaxing. Each town visited has an interesting history and quaint personality. American Cruise Lines provides a fantastically safe environment for aging guests or for those travelling alone. The small ships ensure that you'll be able to meet and make ...

The cruise actually started in Lewiston, Idaho but Cruise Critic does not have that in the required drop down menu. It was the west bound passage ending in Portland, Oregon (actually Hayden Island, Oregon. (The east bound passage has the same itinerary only in reverse). It traversed eight locks on the way to the mouth of the Columbia River following the route of Lewis and Clark. It was very ...

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 ...

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 ...

I've never been to the Northwest USA before and this was the perfect way to see it! I loved the excursions. The busses were upscale and everything was so organized. I also enjoyed all the beautiful River Views as we went from one place to another. The Marine Museum in Astoria was fantastic. I have also never seen the type of hotel we toured., The staff on the cruise was GREAT and the ...
