Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

Un-Cruise AdventuresS.S. Legacy is a graceful gem of a ship, a faithful replica of an early 20th-century American steamboat, yet updated with modern conveniences. Built in 1983 and refitted in 2013 after a change in ownership, she primarily plies the 500 navigable miles of the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest.

What We Love

Victorian Interiors: The Lounge and the Klondike Dining Room are decorated with old-style, patterned tin ceilings, two-tone wooden columns, and a player piano to accompany a twirl on the wooden dance floor. Patrons at the lounge’s long sit-up bar face an elaborately wood-framed mirrored backdrop.

Deck Access From the Cabins: Most rooms open to a side promenade, so a “thar she blows” from the bridge has you outside in seconds.

Best Known For

Costumed Actors: Dressed in 19th-century garb, actors roam the ship and present skits depicting life on the river during the time of early Pacific Northwest exploration and settlement.

An Amazing Suite: An oversize 600-square-foot, two-room Owner’s Suite crowns the sun deck in regal splendor. A one-of-a-kind accommodation, it's outfitted with all sorts of amenities, such as a stocked wet bar, private DVD collection, two TVs, and a small library. 

Who It's Best For

History and Scenery Buffs: The Columbia-Snake River itinerary is a relaxing cruise framed by ever-changing sights along the banks, enriched with stories of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and first contacts with Native Americans. Because the route is more sedentary than Un-Cruise Adventures' Alaskan program, it draws an older passenger set.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Bus Excursions Can Be Annoying: Most tours involve boarding buses, but luckily the driving distances are generally brief.
