Welcome to Portland! Arriving at the airport, UnCruise representatives are there to greet you for your transfer to our hospitality area in downtown Portland. If time allows, explore the city before setting sail. Champagne and hors d’oeuvres await you on board before sitting down for a sumptuous dinner.
The Columbia meets the Pacific in the rustic seaport of Astoria. Settle in and take a bite. Iconic Pacific Northwest razor clams, oysters, salmon, halibut, Dungeness crab, sturgeon, steelhead, and cod are all harvested here. We’ll sample whatever is in season and meet the folks who work in the small-scale seafood industries up and down the Washington and Oregon coast. Wash it all down with a cold one from a local craft brewery. Need to move your feet? Hit the Astoria Riverwalk trail and explore bridges and seafaring history along the path of the old Columbia River Railroad. Or, burn some serious calories and climb from sea level to the Astoria Column for stellar views.
Start your day with on deck guided stretches and a hearty breakfast as you pass through the Bonneville Locks. Misty or sunny, it’s all epic scenery. Today’s focus reflects the agricultural landscape: orchards and vineyards. Sample craft ciders made from the acres of apple and pear orchards that roll across the mountains. Fill up at lunch, the base of Mount Hood is also prime wine growing region—ripe for touring and tasting. Back on board, cruise upriver through the Columbia River Gorge’s diverse collection of ecosystems. At 80 miles long and up to 4,000 feet deep, this river canyon cuts the only sea level route through the Cascade Mountains.
Go local. Today, sample all things Walla Walla including tastes from visits with an olive oil maker, a local chocolatier, and makers of hand-cured pastrami and cheeses. And with local bites comes local sips. Lunch is a special treat at the historic Gesa Power House Theatre where your onboard chef and area farmers, producers, and the winemakers from Bergevin Lane Vineyards prepare a feast that is truly of the area. Then it’s time to stretch your legs. Visit Dunham Cellars or head to historic downtown with your guide and sommelier where boutique shops and over 30 tasting rooms await. Back on board, trade stories of culture and food and drink adventures over dinner with your shipmates.
A visit to the Walter Clore Wine & Culinary Center provides palette-pleasing access to Washington and Oregon wine experts. Learn about the diversity of the region’s wine and food products, perfect food pairings (including a cooking demo), and sample wines from a featured AVA over lunch. Then it’s off to discover the pride of the Red Mountain appellation—the smallest wine-grape growing region of Washington by acreage and known for its critically acclaimed reds. Savor a tour and tasting at the exquisite Terra Blanca Estate Winery & Vineyard. Explore Terra Blanca’s rolling vineyards, wine caves, and beautifully manicured estate grounds. Nose and bouquet, balance and finish, legs and body—your wine host and sommelier guide you through an onboard tasting event before dinner.
Pair fine craft food and drink with the craft of fine art. Atop a bluff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, tour the Maryhill Museum—a castle-like chateau with an eclectic collection of European paintings, Rodin sculptures, Native artifacts, Northwest art, and the Queen of Romania’s personal art objects and artifacts. After lunch onboard, afternoon activities include meeting a local brew master to learn about ales, stouts, pilsners, and lagers. Over a swig or two, soak up tales of families whose ancestors crossed the country on the Oregon Trail and settled in The Dalles. Weather permitting, stroll the Columbia River Trail to a noteworthy Lewis and Clark campsite, or visit the historic downtown area of The Dalles.
Rise and shine with hot cup of joe. Today’s morning meal includes an onboard coffee tasting from a local roaster to complement your pastries and hot breakfast. Next up, the Willamette Valley. Oregon’s largest AVA is an oenophile’s mecca and, like a plump grape, bursting with opportunities to please your palate. At Hawks View Cellars, tour the sustainably farmed 50-acre estate vineyard and try award-winning Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris that put the Willamette valley on the map. Then tour and taste at more hand-picked wineries—taking in Oregon’s Coastal Range while sipping Raptor Ridge’s and Archer Vineyards’ old-vine varietals. Whichever winemakers du jour, you’ll gain an insider’s view of this world-renowned region. And if you’re feeling peckish, why not get a little nutty? In addition to vineyards, The Willamette Valley is home to hazelnut farms producing 99% of the nation’s hazelnuts. We’ll have some for snacking as you anticipate this evening’s meal. Tonight, we pull out all the corks for a wine extravaganza and city lights cruise along the Willamette River—raising one last glass to toast friendship and wine at the multi-course captain’s dinner.
Sated, your week of wineries and river cruising has come to an end. Enjoy breakfast with friends and say farewell to the crew before disembarking for your included transfer to the Portland airport.
