|About the Port of Portland
It is the perfect place to catch a day cruise, organize a cruise party for a celebration or business event or simply catch a weeklong cruise on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The laid-back atmosphere of the city is sure to rub off on you before you embark on the journey of your life.
Located just twelve miles away from Portland International Airport, the Port of Portland is an easily accessible destination for all cruising opportunities. Spirit of ’98, Spirit of Alaska, Spirit of Columbia and Spirit of Discovery are just some of the cruise lines that embark from this port, making it a great departing point for those wishing to cruise the Pacific northwest.
The main attraction for the port are river cruises on the Columbia and Snake Rivers, the route that Lewis and Clark traveled over 200 years ago. Cruises that take this route often have a history theme or unique experiences to remind you of their journey, adding a family friendly twist to the adventure.
Because ships may not dock at the port, all passengers are required to park at the Embassy Suites Portland International Airport, and then ferried to the cruise ship. Even though the shuttle departs from the Embassy Suites, other hotel options located near the port include the Courtyard Marriott City Center and the Governor Hotel.
