We enjoyed enjoyed exploring the Columbia River Gorge. A riverboat is an excellent way to get to see this part of country.
From other passengers that had been on American Cruise Lines I would hear consistently that they had good experiences on some of the companies other trips.
However, anyone booking on this ship should be aware that this a very old and barely maintained boat. The boat is a 1980's time capsule.
Small, uncomfortable bedding, bathrooms have sizeable ledge to enter.
