In our most recent post, we talked about a variety of cruises through the Inside Passage of Alaska, but did you know that there are some great cruises right in Oregon? One of the best smaller ship cruises can be enjoyed right on the Columbia River via USA River Cruises, which is why we chose this image as our photo of the week.
USA River Cruises offers a variety of excursions, including aboard the American Empress, the largest overnight riverboat west of the Mississippi River. In fact, it’s offering a special on its 5-day voyage in March, that includes a number of popular stops along the Columbia, like breathtaking Multnomah Falls, Bonneville Dam, and the Astoria Column.
When you book the 5-day, 4-night cruise for a March 2018 departure, by using the code NWRAE18, you’ll get a Cabin Category C for just $899 per person (double occupancy.)
Having that to look forward to makes winter not quite as tough to endure!
