River Cruise Itinerary
Day 1 – Welcome to Portland
On arrival at the Portland Airport, you’ll be met and escorted to our inviting modern hotel set in an historic 1912 landmark in the heart of Portland. This evening, gather with your fellow travelers for dinner at Mother’s Bistro & Bar. Under the direction of Chef Lisa Schroeder, this inviting bistro is esteemed for its traditional homemade dishes – prepared with both modern slow-cooking methods and classical techniques. The menu changes regularly as Chef Schroeder sources seasonally available ingredients that reflect the bounty of the Pacific Northwest like wild-caught salmon and farm-to-kitchen produce. (D)

Day 2 – From Portland to the Orgeon Coast
Our day begins with a tour of the landmarks and districts that have made Portland one of America’s most popular cities – with both visitors and transplants from across the country. We’ll start with Pittock Mansion. Built 102 years ago for one of Oregon’s early and most influential families, this French Renaissance style chateau offers terrific views of the skyline and is a great place to gain insight into how Portland has become the vibrant city it is today. We’ll return to the city center to see Pioneer Square and other popular neighborhoods including the Pearl District and riverfront. At Washington Park and the International Test Rose Garden, you’ll see why Portland has earned its reputation as a city that offers both urban appeal and nature at its best.
 
After your city tour, we’ll head deeper into the lovely Willamette Valley to sample the wines of Oregon’s esteemed wine country – including award-winning Pinot Noir and other Willamette Valley varietals like Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.  Leaving the river valley behind, we’ll make our way through the spectacular, deeply forested slopes of the Oregon Coast Range to Lincoln City where we’ll pick up the 101 Coastal Highway. The scenery this afternoon will be breathtaking as we make our way along rugged cliffs and scenic shores – the Pacific Ocean on one side and mountain forests on the other. Places like the Otter Crest Loop and Yaquina Head Lighthouse offer particularly wonderful photo opportunities.
 
Tonight you’ll dine at Tables of Content, a family-style restaurant under the direction of Co-Chefs Nanci Courtney and Rowan Lehrman – one of the original founding owners of the nationwide Panini Bakery. Offering just one seating each night, this intimate venue is renowned for its seasonal menu featuring farm-to-table produce, fresh locally-caught seafood, and Oregon artisanal cheeses. Set high on a bluff with spectacular private-balcony views of the Pacific Ocean and Oregon coast, the charming Elizabeth Street Inn in Newport, OR will be your home for the night. (B+D)
 
Day 3 – Eugene + Our Special Winemakers Evening
After breakfast, we’ll continue our scenic journey down historic Highway 101, passing over several impressive bridges designed by Conde B. McCullough, the pioneering American engineer behind five major bridges along 101. Stopping at Sea Lion Caves, a private wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary, we’ll discover the largest coastal sea cave in America and a year-round habitat and rookery for hundreds of Stellar sea lions. It’s a scenic spot to observe and learn about the flora, fauna and geology of America’s Northwest coast. This afternoon we’ll head into Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, a pristine 40-mile long expanse of coastal sand dunes – the largest in North America. Setting out in an open-top buggy with a professional driver is a thrilling way to take in the spectacular scenery.
 
From the coast, we’ll head inland to Eugene – a vibrant university town that’s been a leader in the wine and culinary scene of the American Northwest. On arrival, you’ll have time to browse in the 5th Street Market, a delightful collection of local shops and boutiques. Then check in to the Excelsior Inn, an historic century-old landmark in the heart of town. There will be time to relax and refresh before our specially arranged Winemakers Evening Experience at Excelsior’s Ristorante Italiano.
 
Under the direction of Chef Owner Maurizio Paparo, this exceptional restaurant has been a pioneer in Oregon’s Slow Food Movement. Its authentic Italian dishes are meticulously prepared with the finest locally-sourced products including eggs, herbs and vegetables from the inn’s own organic farm. Beautifully presented and attentively served, each course of your congenial dinner is accompanied by wine pairings selected and presented by an accomplished winemaker from one of Oregon’s finest vineyards.

Day 4 – The Oregon Garden + Board the American Empress 
We’ll head north after breakfast to visit the Oregon Garden, where you’ll find unique specialty gardens showcasing the botanical wealth and diversity of the Pacific Northwest. With our expert guide, your visit encompasses the most interesting and beautiful areas of this 80-acre complex which includes a Sensory Garden, Wetland Habitat and a fascinating collection of miniature conifers. Sit down to lunch in the garden’s café before touring the Gordon House. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is a wonderful reflection of his vision to design homes that are both in harmony with nature and affordable for American families of varying means. Even today, it continues to inspire the growing modern architectural movement toward smaller homes.
 
Return to Portland and cross the river to Vancouver, Washington where the American Empress awaits. Settle in to your outside stateroom and then gather with your fellow passengers for dinner in the Astoria Dining Room as we set sail up the scenic Columbia River. Featuring the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, your evening meals onboard will be accompanied by free-flowing wine and beer. (B+L+D)

Regarded as the oldest American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, Astoria is a vibrant town with a rich and colorful history… For thousands of years, the region was the home of Clatsop Indians. In 1805, Lewis and Clark led their expedition through town and wintered nearby at Fort Clatsop. The British Navy arrived aboard a warship in 1813 and gained possession of Astoria until 1818, not fully leaving the area until 1846!
