Choose Your Cruise - April 17, 2020 Porthole Cruise Magazine
Last week on Choose Your Cruise, readers selected their favorite adventure from a list of three expedition cruises. This week, we’re trading in our zodiacs and parkas for a full-bodied cabernet and a lovely selection of cheeses.
That’s right, folks. We’re river cruising!
You might think that you have to fly all the way to Europe to get the full river cruise experience, but people forget that America has rivers, too. Darn good ones, at that. We have three American river cruises to choose from on three of our favorite small ship operators. These cruise lines have an excellent chance of returning to service before large, international ships, so why not lock in a great deal for next year while you can? We certainly are!
It took Lewis and Clark more than a year and a half to reach the lush Pacific Northwest. Today, we can retrace sections of that epic journey across America with a river cruise adventure from UnCruise. The Rivers of Adventure itinerary traverses the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Starting in Portland, OR, the cruise on board SS Legacy takes guests into the heart of Cascadia, home to some of the most wild terrain and unexplored territories anywhere in America. Those who live to the region enjoy all manner of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, whitewater rafting and camping.
