Thank you for your feedback. We do not give windows because of "privilege", we sell them at a per person rate. When we have a sold out cruise everyone wants a window, and we have found that up-charging for it is the best way. We...More

This was a long thought about trip,which we finally got around to doing.WELL worth the effort.The food was very good, the Captain seemingly knew what he was talking about & enjoyed sharing that knowledge. The crew was gracious & competent.It was a beautiful day.

We had brunch and it was fantastic! The staff was awesome and the river was beautiful! Listening to the captain talk about the river was very entertaining even for us who grew up in the PNW.

The weather was perfect, the buffet food was excellent, our server was friendly, warm, caring, and attentive. One hope was to see eagles on the river as we went downstream, and we saw several eagles flying! It was a perfect experience.

It is $114 per person. But we are unfortunantly sold out for the fall trip. We still have availability for next spring though.
