Portland Spirit Dinner Cruise

Portland Spirit Dinner Cruise

Fresh Northwest cuisine, live entertainment and grand scenery are all the ingredients you need for a memorable evening.

On the Portland Spirit Dinner Cruise, this flagship yacht combines a classic nautical experience with a fine dining atmosphere, while the Captain provides entertaining narration on the outside deck. Major sights on the cruise include Memorial Coliseum, the Rose Garden Arena, Oregon Convention Center, Spaghetti Factory and Willamette Park.

The Portland Spirit is a 150' yacht with three public decks, two of which are enclosed and climate controlled - each with a baby grand piano and a full service bar. Delicious Northwest cuisine is made to order in our on-board galley. Several full service bars provide a vast wine selection.

You will be entertained by live performers, including our singing wait staff. There is a ship-wide sound system and a marble dance floor.
