My first river cruise. Choose Columbia River for the scenery. Clarkston, WA ..to Portland, OR.
Travel from Houston to the cruise was a challenge. Easy to get to Portland. Getting to Clarkston,WA. Or Spokane by plane from portland was unrealistic so we rented a car and drove 6 hours.
Once we were inClarkston it was well organized. (Car was returned to Lewiston airport hotel provided shuttle back to hotel.)
