We took the cruise on July 3rd. Everything was well organized.Seating was assigned.
They had a beer and wine list you could order from.The food was quite good, did not expect a five star restaurant. Staff was super friendly. The cruise covers more of the upstream part of the river. We saw Downtown only at the end. They can’t sail to the port because they will not raise the bridge for the boat. We would have liked a little bit more commentary and information. Still, we enjoyed the cruise very much and can only recommend it.

Thank you for the wonderful review Martin, I will pass your comment onto the captain. Come back soon! Don't forget to check out the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler in Cascade Locks, Oregon.

What a terrific time my family and I had on the lunch cruise! It was just the right speed and sound level for my almost 4-year-old, who enjoyed exploring all the different levels. We were on the top level (best location!) and watched other boats pass by and looked at the various houses and sites along the river. I was surprised at how good the food was (steelhead). The entire crew went above and beyond to help us have a wonderful day. I think leadership often sets the tone, so Captain Todd should get a special shout out for running such a great ship!

So much fun. We learned about the history of Chinatown and North Beach. We learned about the food as we walked through those areas and ate. We had moon pies, pork buns, noodles, Peking duck, pizza, canoli, fudge, and tea. So much great food and so much information. We had a great guide with Brian. He was laid back and really excited about what he was tell us. He was a born and breed local with a love for his city. Definately recommend for couples and families. Moderate walking please wear sneakers.

Include a fountain drink with the meal. They charge you 70 for the ticket trap you on a boat then inform you everything cost extra including a drink. Also was boring with no live entertainment and staff was overwhelmed.

Hi Ashley, I am very sorry to hear about your negative experience onboard. I have done some research into your specific cruise to make sure this does not happen again, your server was a brand new server, we are going to go through some more training to make sure we maintain our service standards. In comment to the price and additional addons, I would recommend you book directly through us next time as you will save some money. The live entertainment was removed due to covid and will be back as soon as our restrictions are lifted. Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback and we hope you decide to give us a second chance in the future.

I have to rate this as "average" because of several factors, none having to do with the crew or the boat. The weather pollution the day we took this were very bad due to the ongoing wildfires occurring in Oregon, California (drifting northward) and Washington. All of that combined to make a very foggy, unhealthy atmosphere not only to breathe but to see. The visibility was so low that the captain turned the cruise back before time, and the river views were limited at best. Also, the plated lunch was delightful but not enough. We ordered Steelhead (trout) which was delectable but a very small portion sitting atop a large bed of rice. There were some mixed vegs on the plate. I wanted more fish to eat, and we missed the warm bread altogether so I asked for that and had it after the meal. Any bar drink or soda was extra in price so I enjoyed one draft beer. Dessert was also extra. We did splurge on the $15 photo of the experience though. They billed the cost of the cruise and the bar tab (hubby had a couple) all at once so the preprogrammed tip on the receipt showed $33.00. That looked a little funny. I have honestly had better cruises but again, it's not anything against the crew or the wonderful lady who helped us get to the dock that day, since we were lost on the other side of the city.

Wait staff was excellent, everyone was courteous , the captain met you when you boarded and when you unbordered, piano player was good, food was ok, but… They had the audacity to make the suggested tip amount, predicated on the entire experience. In other words I was going to have to tip the waiter for my boat ride payment. We spent $100 on appetizers and drinks. I tipped 50% on that amount, because I had to consider the meal in addition to that. But really, trying to slip in the $400 for the cost of our boat ride, in the tip consideration, was a bit much.

First time ever doing something like this and my experience was amazing. Went with my husband for our first 12 year anniversary and it was wonderful. The crew was so nice and helpful and the food was amazing. Definitely recommend going on this lunch cruise.

We have always wanted to take this cruise, can't explain why it took so long for us to go ahead with it. From the boarding process, meeting the staff, getting cruise and safety information from the Captain, the talented piano playing throughout the trip, the narratioon which could be heard throughout the top two decks, the service and attention given by Luis the waiter, the fantastic and tasty meal - steelhead or tenderloin, the Cadillac Margarita, the views we passed...all were part of such a great experience that when we have visitors, we will surely bring them on this tour. Who knows, we might even go on it again once or twice more! Looking forward to other cruises by this company as it was so very well run and comfortable.
