Cruise Itinerary: Rivers of Wine & Culinary Cruise

Cruise Day Cruise Port Description
Day 1: Portland, Oregon – Embarkation 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.
Day 2: Astoria 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.
Day 3: Hood River / Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area 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.
Day 4: Walla Walla, Washington 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.
Day 5: Red Mountain 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.
Day 6: The Dalles, Oregon 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.
Day 7: Willamette Valley 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.
Day 8: Portland, Oregon – Disembark 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.
