We booked our 80's spirit night for a birthday gathering through Groupon. We booked it and we found out the morning we were to depart, Portland had a flash flood warning. We called and left several messages to reschedule. They would not reschedule us nor returned our call. Will never recommend this business.

Done this trip a couple times last year and it was great. The food was good and the views are amazing. A bit cold at times, so bring a coat. Welcome to Portland!

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

We took this cruise as kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing and really enjoyed it. It was the last night of a 3-day business trip that my wife joined me on. It was mid-week and raining (Sept. 5) but not cold. I'd say the cruise was about 2/3's full. The food was good, the boat is well staffed and managed. Piano... More

4 of us went on the Friday early escape concert cruise 2 weeks ago. The spirit boarded at 3pm and returned about 530. The band was cody bebe and the crooks, the music was great, the band only took 1 ten minute break during the cruise. The Portland spirit staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We took our 6 year old grandson on the 2 hour Sternwheeler sightseeing cruise out of Cascade Locks and had a wonderful time. The captain allowed him to "drive the boat" and he felt really special. The whole trip was very enjoyable and professionally handled.

Spent some time on it with friends and some family listening to a friends band play and it was for sure worth the time and effort to get on the ship. The staff was friendly and took great care of us and would recommend anyone to visit.

I had 11 out-of-town guests help celebrate my mother's birthday on a bruch cruise in the Tri-Cities. It was a great way to introduce them to the river and its history in the Tri-Cities while having a relaxing experience. The food was great. The mimosas were raved about. The crew was very friendly and welcoming. From making reservations to leaving... More
