Entertainment and Activities
Your Columbia River cruise isn’t just a relaxing vacation – it’s an educational journey as well. You’ll sail in the wake of Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery on the final leg of their journey to reach the Pacific Ocean. An onboard historian will entertain you with tales of early explorers and the Native American tribes they encountered, and shore excursions will be themed around the unique history and geography of the region. You’ll sail from the arid lowlands of Eastern Washington, through the alpine forests of the Cascade Mountains, on to the distinctive cities of Portland and Astoria, stopping at historical sites, vineyards, and active volcanoes as you go. A Columbia River cruise is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
American Cruise Lines recommends bringing weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable footwear on your river cruise. Smart-casual dress is recommended for dinner and may include sweaters, slacks, a sports jacket or skirt.
