Wild ride

Loved seeing the real estate on the river. It would’ve been better suited in the daylight but still magnificent! My only suggestion is to offer an age restricted cruise for a more romantic ambience. Kids running around can become annoying. Families should be able to ride, too, but perhaps offer both options?
Best Dinner Cruise

Very friendly staff. Matty, our waiter was the best! The food was good and the entire experience was awesome. Oregon is very beautiful and the dinner cruise gives you a great opportunity to enjoy!

Thank you for cruising with us and for your feedback. We're disappointed that the food was not to your liking. Our menu is updated daily and prepared fresh onboard by our executive chef. We will share your feedback with our chef and the management team as we are always looking to improve and provide the best possible service to our guests. We hope you'll give us a second chance and join us again in the future.
Don’t make this your ‘special event’
, Sep 2021
I had an elderly relative visiting so issues about walking. Took her on this cruise. Nicer than I expect (though not cheap). A couple of problems though—the food included in ticket price was rubbish—having the option of meals would have been better (I paid additional for seafood, alcohol, etc). I won’t fo it again-almost everyone on the boat was a ‘special’ event—graduations, wedding proposal, anniversary, etc. ok but kinda lame

Hello Rebecca, thank you for cruising with us, I am sorry you did not enjoy the meal portion of your cruise. I will pass your comments on to my galley manager. Pertaining to your comment about special occasions, we pride ourselves in being a destination for Portlanders to celebrate special times. I am not entirely sure why that is lame. I hope you decide to give us second chance in the future.
A very bad time
, Sep 2021
Fair food. After the cruise at about 9:30 pm we were set to call Lyft. My AP failed. We had no way to get back to our hotel. The captain said that he would take us. Then he had forgotten that he brought his two seater sports car and could not help us. He offered to call a taxy and that the gate would be locked at 11:00 pm. He called a taxy. It would come in 30 minutes. It was 10:00 pm then in a high homeless dark area. At 10:30 pm No taxy. We were considering calling 911. At 10:45 pm a white car came into the parking lot. My wife and I (both old seniors) flagged the car down thinking that it was the taxy. It was a couple of ladies enjoying the color of the bridges. They heard our story and gave us a lift to our hotel 1.5 miles away. Thank GOD for them. The cab company called us at our hotel at 11.02 pm asking if we still wanted the ride. This ship company does not give a damn about its customers. Their prices are outrageous.

Hello Ronald, it sounds like you are leaving a review for lyft and not for us. We understand that phone apps not working is frustrating. According to our captain, he did everything in his power to help including offering you a ride. I would recommend you plan ahead when you need transportation back to your hotel after the cruise.

Enjoyable with average food
, Sep 2021
Food wasn’t great. Staff was very friendly and the cruise down the river and back was nice but no narration at all as to what you were seeing.

Hello, Andrew thank you for cruising with us, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The narration for our dinner cruise is played on the outer deck speakers so as not to disturb the dinner guests in their conversations. I will pass on your note about the food to my galley manager.
Nothing special
, Sep 2021
Pretty gimmicky. Food was ok. Staff was friendly. Cruise was nice and drink selectio was good. Not overcrowded.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your cruise, please feel free to reach out to us with concerns, I do not see anything negative in this review so I am wondering what went wrong. 503-224-3900, we would be happy to talk about any negative experiences and what we could have done to improve for next time.
A disappointing cruise
, Sep 2021
Unfortunately this cruise was a disappointment. While the food was good, we were unable to enjoy it because it was covered in fruitflies. The bartender tried to make it right with a free drink but couldn’t even enjoy that because of the flies. After dinner, we went on deck to listen to the captain but couldn’t hear him bc people were playing their own music loudly
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Hi Wendy, I am sorry to hear about this negative experience. We are aware of the fruit flies and we have fixed that problem, also, I am sorry other people were playing their own music. I wish we would have been made aware of the problem and we could have fixed it onboard. I hope you decide to come back and give us a second chance, we would love to have you back.
Pros and Cons on Dinner Cruise
, Sep 2021
Food was surprisingly good, we both had beef tenderloin. The boat is clean and staff friendly. We were seated by the door leading to the bow outdoor area so that was a bit annoying. We enjoyed the cruise, there are some huge beautiful houses and the lights of the city were beautiful. Our server Lilly was very good. We spent $300+ for the cruise, extras like a glass of wine and dessert other than what's included... plus tip on entire experience.. Dessert could have been better. Kind of expensive but it was a vacation outing.
