My husband surprised me with a trip to Portland for our anniversary, which is Valentines Day. His goal was to have an outcome much better than last years trip to Crooked River Cabins. That was my surprise gone horribly wrong. Anyway, it's our second anniversary and it was his turn to plan the surprise. After getting to the nice hotel,... More

We attended my husband's holiday party aboard the Portland Spirit and found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The food was very good and the service was friendly.

Took the thanksgiving dinner cruise. The buffet line got a bit congested at times but other than that we had a great time. The food was delicious with a northwestern flair to the traditional feast. A lovely way to see the activity along the Willamette! The service was friendly and prompt!

I count on these cruises for the best way to show Portland by river to out-of-town guests--outside of owning your own boat! The service is the best, the food is good, the view is beautiful and the special music by the crew is upbeat and makes the whole experience top notch.

Took the dinner cruise. Food and service were excellent. Crew singing was corny but fun. Enjoyed the view from the water because it offers a different perspective of the city and the bridges.

Whether you take a short cruise for Lunch or Dinner or a Day-Long cruise to Astoria or Cascade Locks, you can't go wrong here. The price might "seem" high but when you get on board and see the food and TASTE it and get home from the cruise you'll soon see it's well worth the price - So many cruises... More

Spent my 2nd year anniversary cruising through Portland on a rainy day with Portland Spirit and it was great. The staff was very accomodating and attentive. Our drinks were great. The only thing I request is for more selection of dessert. :) Oh, and the entertainment was great as well.

We set sail on a beautiful August evening, with a wonderful window view. We were welcomed aboard by singing waiters & waitresses, starting the evening off on a really pleasant 'note'. We enjoyed a nice meal with great views of the waterway. After dinner, we proceeded to the upper deck for the remainder of the cruise, which ended with our... More
