Great food....Too many extra costs!

We went on the dinner cruise for our 30th anniversary. We didn't get the extra romance package or anything added to the cost of $150+ per couple. It is only 2.5 hours so they... read more

We went on the dinner cruise for our 30th anniversary. We didn't get the extra romance package or anything added to the cost of $150+ per couple. It is only 2.5 hours so they hurry up dinner at the beginning of the cruise. They took orders before we left the dock. It would be better to relax a bit and... More

Went on the Brunch Cruise, and the buffet was very good with a huge variety of dishes to satisfy all. The scenery was beautiful.

We did not take the dinner or lunch cruise. If we had, our opinion might change. For a scenic cruise, there was not much to see.

Fun experience overall and good place to watch fireworks. However, the price is a bit steep at $99, especially for the quality of food and service. Quality of food was average. Service was horrible. They must hire servers without regard to experience. We had to ask twice for our pre prepared salad to be served to us. It finally was... More

An overdue review of the fantastic time we had on the Portland Spirit a year ago. Was in Vancouver for a conference and took Uber to the Portland Spirit dock. It was one of those rare warm evenings in Portland. Took the dinner cruise and most of people on the boat were part of a large group. We got a... More

Went on this trip as part of a work experience, wouldn't have booked it myself. Food pretty poor quality, little choice and a charge for extras, such as starters! Staff not very helpful, keen to get you served and away up on the top deck out of harms way. Just a little more attention to detail and less rush would... More

This was a fantastic evening spent on our first visit to Portland. Our conference group went on this cruise together. The setting is very elegant and included live piano music. The wine and drink selection is excellent and not too pricey. There was a choice of 4 types of meals - vegetarian, beef, chicken, and seafood. My wife had excellent... More

I was looking for something different to do in Portland before we picked my son and his family up at the airport at 11:00 pm. The diner cruise runs from 7:00 to 9:30 and seemed the perfect fit for what I was looking for. We arrived right around 6:30 when they start boarding for the cruise. We had a nice... More
