Even though I am from the Pacific Northwest, I thoroughly enjoyed my Columbia/Snake river cruises. I sailed from Portland to Clarkston/Lewiston and the change of scenery was amazing. We went through historic sites, locks, dams and saw some breathtaking waterfalls. Sea lions were sunbathing on logs as the sky showed off its snow-capped mountains.

Which River Cruise is right for me ?
Are you confused by all the different cruise companies and itineraries?
1) Have you started to research your choices and find that now you’re just overwhelmed by all the information? Would you like to know which cruise is the perfect fit for you or why some companies are better on certain rivers than others ?
Each company claims they are the best but I can tell you the differences between Ama Waterways, Avalon, Emerald, Scenic, Tauck, Uniworld and Viking
2) If you have questions like which ones offer more active excursions ? Which ones include the gratuities or alcohol? Are the French Balcony type cabins worth the higher cost? Which deck should I pick, what should I pack ? Then I can help answer all of those and get you booked on the right cruise (because one that your friend went on might not be the best choice for you)
3) Can you trust spending up to $10,000 or more online or with a call center agent or would you like to book with an expert who has actually been there ?
I’ve sailed on the Rhine (3 times), Main, Mosel, Danube (3 times), Rhone, Saone, Seine, Garonne (Bordeaux) Dutch/Belgian Waterways, Yangtze, Mekong, Amazon, St. Lawrence, Columbia/Snake rivers and the Chobe River in Africa.
