12 Reasons I Loved My UnCruise Adventure in the Pacific Northwest | Travel Awaits
My UnCruise Adventure was a seven-night journey titled “Rivers of Adventure and Wine.” We cruised the Columbia and Snake Rivers, beginning and ending the trip in Portland, Oregon. The Columbia River is the largest in the Pacific Northwest. Our journey took us along the Columbia River National Scenic Area which borders Oregon and Washington. The Columbia River Gorge changes in character from verdant forests, sheer cliffs, and numerous waterfalls to high desert plateaus. UnCruise Adventures was one of the first companies to embrace small-ship cruising. Last year, they celebrated their 25th anniversary as a leader in small-boat, small-group, and small-footprint cruising. UnCruise Adventures has received numerous awards including “Best Small Ship Adventure,” Travel Weekly Magellan Awards, and Travel + Leisure Awards.
