I went on the lunch river cruise. The weather was perfect. I enjoyed the lunch. The salmon was delicious and the service was excellent. The piano music was very pleasant. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Four of my family spent a lovely evening aboard the Portland Spirit for a dinner cruise along the Willamette River. The meal was delicious; the views along the river were interesting; and the entertainment was extraordinary. Altogether, it was a fabulous evening.

Yikes. I wouldn't think so unless you chartered because they tend to be pretty crowded.

I wasn't driving so I can't tell you the exact address but since we were a little early we stopped and got coffee at Starbucks. We parked just by there and walked. Maybe that will give you a point of reference. Have fun.

to access the boat yes, but I don't recall any way to get to the outside other than stairs but there may have been a lift somewhere that I didn't see. But you can get to the main dining hall and view windows easily.
