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 ...

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

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first time on an American Cruise Lines voyage. The company came highly recommended, but we were very disappointed. The ship had been renovated with new furnishings, so looked very nice. The crew quarters were still under renovation, so the staff and crew shared the guest quarters, including the lounges. This made for a very unprofessional atmosphere. Housekeeping in our room was ...

We had never seen this part of the country, so the itinerary got our interest. We were very pleased with every aspect of the trip- beautiful, spacious stateroom,; excellent food with great choices; very enthusiastic and helpful crew (all of them, from the wait staff, house keeping staff, cruise directors, excursions director- all were upbeat, willing to multi-task- no one ever said, “that’s not ...

Beautiful scenery, food disappointing

We wanted to cruise from Portland and see the river scenery. On this we were not disappointed. The scenery was gorgeous and the ship is beautiful. There are plenty of opportunities to grab beverages and snacks throughout the day, but the food in the dining room left a lot to be desired. Often food arrived barely warm and portions were often small - my husband joked that the prime rib was so thin ...
