First things first, do not trust your map app. If you Google Portland Spirit it brings up the address of their main office on SE Carruthers. This is their business office, and not the landing site where you board the boat. The boarding area is...More

Enjoyed the dinner and fireworks cruise. Everything was first class from the greeting we received upon getting on the ship, the waiter to the food.

From the pictures of food and ship seen on the Website we were looking forward to this cruise as a birthday treat. However the ship was much smaller than the one we expected and the food not very appetising (especially the beef and the dessert)....More

to access the boat yes, but I don't recall any way to get to the outside other than stairs but there may have been a lift somewhere that I didn't see. But you can get to the main dining hall and view windows easily.
