Review of SS Legacy

The paddlewheeler SS Legacy riverboat cruises on Columbia and Snake rivers, departing from Portland, Oregon.

SS Legacy cruise ship

SS Legacy was formerly sailing as "The Spirit of 98" and takes her guests back in time with amazing historical ambiance and itinerary program synchronized with the history of the navigated waterways. In 2013 SS Legacy was fully refurbished and the passenger count was reduced. The ship was reinvented into a turn-of-the-century steamer with wooden cabinetry and a Grand Salon with a dance floor and full bar. There are several unique social areas on board the SS Legacy and three public decks, accessible via an elevator. The ship features an intimate library and wine bar. The Pesky Barnacle Saloon has a wrap-around viewing balcony and attracts guests with tasty cocktails and period accents in the design. The Klondike Dining Room is spacious, with large view windows and cosmopolitan atmosphere of a turn-of-the-century hotel. An intimate bar on the Lounge Deck is stocked with fine wines and premium spirits. The large open bow welcomes passengers to view wildlife. A covered area with chairs and tables, fitness equipment and two large hot tubs are available up on the Sun Deck.
