We felt super safe with all of the Covid protocols which influenced our decision. The weather did not cooperate (65 mph winds) so we missed 2 days of land activities. The crew was the best and they planned talks, documentaries, games, etc. to fill in the time. Water activities were all cancelled but we had hikes, winery visits, etc. Food and drinks were outstanding. Cabins are small and old ...

Chose this cruise based on the recommendation of the travel agent. The boat is quite old, and needs refurbishing badly. Food was diner quality with an occasional flash of brilliance. Substitutions were always available however any change to the routine meant meals for your table arrived last and were cold, and staff were not particularly happy or gracious about it. Heritage lectures were ...

Embarkation was very smooth. I was met at baggage claim and transported to the 'wait' area by Town Car. There were some pastries and refreshments. I received a free cabin upgrade and had a comfortable room with a large view window and comfortable useful furnishings all to myself. The food was very good and the excursions and on board lectures were interesting. The meat tended to be cooked ...

Round trip Portland OR cruise on Columbia/Snake Rivers. Excellent tours and exposure to history, both geology and early people, of the area. SS Legacy comfortable, but cabin quite small - we are spoiled with larger cruise line experience! Food good, well prepared and presented, but with limited selection. Waitstaff not well versed on menu details. Relatively large crew - professional and ...

We just got back from 7 GLORIOUS DAYS on the S. S. Legacy. Leaving from Portland, we journey through the locks of the Columbia River . . .to the Willamette River, and finally to the Snake River. There we boarded jet boats for 50 miles each way into Hells Canyon. The scenery was UNBELIVIEVABLE . .narrow canyons, beautiful rocks, clear rushing water. From there, we sailed back past Portland to ...

Embarkation - The meeting location was changed without notifying us. I happened to call and confirm things and was told it was changed. Welcome was not very warm and friendly. The people at our table didn't even look up from reading their ebooks and say Hi. The Ship - We loved the ship and its size. Very appropriate for the area we cruised in décor. The lounge and outside area was very ...

We sailed from Portland OR and return up and back the Columbia and Snake Rivers into Washington/Idaho. The scenery, history, ports, tours were all first-rate. And aboard ship - the SS Legacy - it was like being aboard a floating boutique resort. Magnificent cuisine, all prepared fresh including daily baked breads and desserts, with at least two entree choices for lunch and dinner. The galley team ...
