A Historic Adventure aboard Un-Cruise Adventures’ S.S. Legacy Begins

This morning, I started my day off in Los Angeles, where I disembarked a ship that holds 2,124 guests – and ended my day in Portland, Oregon aboard Un-Cruise Adventures’ S.S. Legacy, a ship that holds just 88 guests. To put that in perspective, a single lifeboat aboard the Carnival Miracle could accommodate all passengers and crew aboard the S.S. Legacy.
That’s as far as I’ll go in comparing the two; they’re two vastly different cruise experiences aimed at two very different kinds of travellers. But it gives you some idea of the scale of intimacy here onboard the 192-foot long S.S. Legacy.
Designed to replicate the look and feel of a turn-of-the-century coastal steamer, the S.S. Legacy now makes her home year-round on Oregon’s Columbia and Snake Rivers, where the bread-and-butter of her cruising season is made up of weeklong departures like mine: the 7-night Legacy of Discovery voyages that conveniently operate roundtrip from Portland.
