Day three on the Columbia & Snake River Cruise is a day to relax, make new friends and unwind after your travels to the S.S. Legacy and a busy day two. It's cruising day!
Have you ever witnessed a vessel travelling through a lock? If you’ve been a guest on the 88-guest S.S. Legacy as she navigates the natural beauty of the Columbia River than you are no stranger to these engineering marvels.
Our Alaska season is near and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We want to make sure all your questions are answered and that you are fully prepared to embark on a trip of lifetime with us. Here are a few things you need to know about where you’re headed, and what we suggest you should bring on board with you.
As the brave crew of the S.S. Legacy brought the ship down from Seattle to Portland to begin our season, the Heritage Team made our own journey to learn about the Geology of the Columbia River Gorge. I may know a thing or two about history, but when it comes to science, well…I may have slept that portion of my schooling. I wanted to know more about the prehistoric events that created the beautiful landscapes that we cruise through on the S.S. Legacy.
John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. Muir is one of many real characters brought to life by the Heritage team while cruising through Alaska’s Inside Passage on Alaska’s Golden History Itinerary. History comes alive through presentations and skits on board as well as included tours to points of historical interest.
