Cruise West – New River Itinerary

Friday, October 31, 2008

Cruise West, now the only cruise operator on the river, is extending the Columbia & Snake Rivers cruise season through the summer with a new itinerary on the Spirit of '98. As bookings for the river itineraries continue to rise, Cruise West will stay and operate a new summer itinerary rather than send the Spirit of '98 to for the summer season.

St. Helens and two boutique wineries. Additionally, guests of this Columbia & Snake Rivers cruise will visit the Bonneville Dam, the Pendleton Underground Tour and Pendleton Woolen Mills, plus take a jet boat ride into . The new summer itinerary departs weekly May 15 through September 11, 2009. Prices start at $3,399 per person, based on double occupancy. Guests who book and pay in full prior to December 12, 2008 will save an additional $450 per person, and those who book and pay in full by February 6, 2009 will save $350.
