Wow this would be an amazing way to celebrate my bday!
Okay so here’s the thing , I personally think everyone’s a winner when it boils down to it. People back to work, friends ,family’s, all being to physical see one another. So a friend had cancer she’s fairly young, but with covid only 1 person could see her. The whole time this was in the beginning of last year. She had radiation and a bag change for her infection needless to say she made it and her bday is April 2nd. Swear show you her ID… But it would be cool to get out and about she and I are single moms so not rich.
Would love to win!
My family and I would live to win a day or night on the spirit!!!
Nothing sounds better than being on the river on a summer’s evening away from all the stress of life and enjoying great food, good company and gorgeous scenery. What a breath of fresh air.
Sounds like a beautiful way to finally get out of the house with the spouse (yes, I did just rhyme that).
I’m a lifelong Portland resident, and this would be my first time taking in the view on the Portland Spirit! I’d love to see a different perspective of the Willamette river while sharing it with 3 of my close friends!
So glad she made it! Hope you win!
What a wonderful treat this would be!!! I need a getaway as it’s been a hard year and I’ve been laid off multiple times!! I’ve been very cautious during the pandemic only going out in public to work and to the grocery store and just got my vaccine so it’s time to celebrate a years worth of hard work!
Now that would be a blast
Lived here for a decade and never had dinner on one of these cruises. It would be amazing!!
Thank you for the opportunity to win tickets. My nana is coming to visit me for the first time in 5 years and she loves cruises. I would love to win tickets to take her on this one.
Good luck to everyone!
I’d like to attend to remember my mom. Her birthday was April 13th and I miss her so much but she loved the water and to go on boats. This would be a great tribute to her.
Wow pick me please
This would be the best present for my boyfriend and a perfect date night for us as well.
Visiting Portland for the first time to celebrate my 38th birthday all the way from Florida. Super excited to experience a completely different city and vibe!! Winning this would be icing on the cake!
This would be Great! I have always wanted to go on the Portland Spirit. It would be a Great way to celebrate w family
It’s been so long. I’d live love love a cruise.
Portland Spirit ! Yes please
Dinner cruise and tix for four?
You’re kidding, right? Just shut the door!
A fun night out, we’d bring our buds!
We’ll eat and drink some champagne suds
And watch the Portland skyline glow
Just like our very own private show
The water laps upon the hull
And whispers like good Jethro Tull
Look I never said I’m good at verse
It’s hard, you know…I could do worse
But anyway we be so glad
To win these tickets. Awesome! Rad!
Portland Pipeline, you’re the best
Please pick our entry…we’ll do the rest!
sounds like a hoot
Just please and thank you! All of us, every single one, could use some spirit right about now. I’d be an incredibly grateful recipient of some PDX nourishment.
What a wonderful way to view Portland. I’ve always wanted to experience the Portland Spirit.
As if getting out of the house isn’t treat enough, what a blast!
Me and my hubby would love to experience this cruise! Have never been on a cruise. Pick us please! Darcella
I am not the most honest person or attractive or the nice that I am very loyal this may sound morbid but this cruise would mean the world to me I’ve been with my boyfriend for 10 years and we don’t live together still and recently came to find out that hes been having an affair basically the whole time and The best way to end this whole Thing would be to take him somewhere nice and ended peacefully And remember the good times we did have And make this last. Please consider letting me when you mean the world to me to walk away with my Head Held high Still have dignity.
This would be a fun way to spend time with the fam and enjoy some great views of the city!
I’d like to attend because I have only ever worked on the spirit (during events). Would be so grateful and love to experience the guest side of things and enjoy the views, as well as share with others how wonderful I’m sure it will be!!
Sounds super fun!
Hello. This would be an amazing and fun outing. Like so many others, my partner and I have been deeply affected by everything that has gone on this past year from the Pandemic to Black Lives Matters to holding it together through sickness and health. We still have high spirits, hope, and love in our hearts. Life is still good.
I need this so I can blow my fiancé’s mind and see face light up with happiness….basically 9 out of 10 reasons I do things anyway.
Have always wanted to go on one of these! I’d take my best friend who recently got married. We both didnt get to have a bridal shower/ party due to COVID so this would be a nice treat for us. Thanks!
My birthday is this weekend and I’ve always wanted to try one of these cruises! It sounds like so much fun!
Time on the Portland Spirit would be a very nice at-home getaway. And I’d save you money, since I don’t drink champagne!
For my sanity
I haven’t been on the Spirit for several years but after this year of quarantine I’m ready to RIP through the city and have some sinful adult fun!!! And I’d love to treat my brother & his fiancé as my guests, they’re planning their wedding FINALLY after 3 delays & that’s also his birthday week. He’s been doing an amazing job as a new parent & they deserve a treat more than I do!
A Portland “must do” that I wish I could do.
I just recently found out I’m going blind. I’m freaking out but life throws you some curve balls sometimes. So my goal is to see everything while I can. Please throw my name in the hat. Thanks.
I’m from Washington. I’d love to do this for the first time with my fiancee.
Sounds like a wonderful reason to hit the river(plus, food?! Yes please)! Date done right
Yes yes pick me
Blue skys, easy waves, and good times!? Sign me up. Never been on this cruise before but would love to take my partner on it as a special treat. These are the kind of things that make Portland so freaking great!
I’ve got spirit, yes I do: I’ve got spirit, how about you (pick me for this prize!!!).
Still digging out from an ice storm and would really dig a family cruise!!!
I would love to win this!!
I moved to Portland from Tallahassee Florida 4 years ago and have never been on a cruise but would love to go on one
I’ve heard this dinner cruise is amazing, what a great way to celebrate my
I am approaching my second birthday in quarantine and it’s hard to go someplace with my family, because we are 8 people. this is a beautiful gift i would like to give to all of us, to celebrate all of the things we have missed over the last year!
It’d be cool if my first cruise experience were local.
I just seen the Portland Spirit today cruising on the river and was thinking about how nice it would be to be on it for a change!
Both my parents had covid. My Dad was in the hospital for 12 days. When he come home, my Mom was the best nurse… hands down! They could both use a night out to celebrate being the strongest people I know and my personal super heros! They are a sign of what true love is being married almost 53 years!
I would love the win this prize for my husband and my sister and her husband. I know this year has been challenging for everyone regarding Covid and all the changes this virus has brought to all of our lives. For my family, we have had some other changes as well. For a year and a half I have been diagnosed with end-stage liver disease. My husband and my sister had to become my caregivers and do the best the could to navigate a medical system that none of us had any experience in. Today I am stable for right now and I would love to be able to treat both of them with a night to celebrate how far all of us have come in the last year.
I would love to win this, because I’ve lived in Portland for over 10 years and have never been on the Portland Spirit! Would love to get to experience this with my husband, this year has been hard for him and our family. Thanks for offering this fun prize!
I’m sitting here in my Topsiders waiting to go.
Please pick me! This would be a perfect birthday gift for my husband!
Roll’n; roll’n; Roll’n on the river (cruise with 3 of my besties)!
I’ve always wanted to go on the Portland Spirit!
What a great way to see Portland and enjoy friends! This sounds spectacular.
I’ve never been on the Portland Spirit and would really love to treat myself and some friends to a wonderful evening aboard!
Ooh this sounds amazing! I’d love to go to this event and take my sister for her birthday.
I thought that they were angels
But to my surprise
We climbed aboard their starship
We headed for the skies
Singing, come sail away, come sail away…COME SAIL AWAY WITH ME!
PS. I hope that there is a Styx or David Bowie cover band as the entertainment
There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy of Tea
The winds blew up, her bow dipped down
Oh blow, my bully boys, blow (huh)
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
*Or maybe just the RUM! 🙂
Sounds like a swell time!
This sounds amazing!
This sounds so lovely ! Thank you for offering this giveaway <3
Have always wanted to do this! Would be so fantastic to treat my friends to a night that would surely lift their Spirit 😉
Row, row, row your boat gently down the river…Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream… (when winning a contest, that is)
Would love to attend because the Portland Spirit is awesome!
Have my topsiders on and waiting
take me away from my retail job! just for a little while, please…
I’m putting my hat in for this giveaway. My captains hat.
Roses are red, violets are blue.
Let’s take a cruise on the Portland Spirit, and have a drink or two!
I’ve never seen Portland from water level.
I’ve lived here for 5 years and have never been on the Spirit! Would love this
This would be the perfect pandemic outing for my family and I! My mom is immunocompromised so she’s been unable to do much outside the house, but she was lucky enough to be recently vaccinated. Now we’re ready to explore our beloved hometown again!
I’ve been wanting to do one of these dinner cruises for awhile now but the price has kept me from booking it, so maybe I’ll be lucky the winner & get to finally enjoy this cruise!
i would love to bring my wonderful son to this
My childhood BEST friend is coming to visit (vaccinated!) and this would be the ultimate Portland experience!
This has been on my bucketlist FOREVER! We are moving from Portland soon due to new jobs and this would be AMAZING to win. We love you PDX!
Pick us! We’re vaccinated!
My birthday is on Monday and this would be an amazing thing to win to help celebrate after a crazy year!
This would be awesome. My kids would love this.
Love the Portland Spirit!
It’s been a rough year. Covid 19. Viral pneumonia, and acute bronchitis , psoriasis, infestation of fleas, my kittys need a break, my boyfriend has a sex addiction and brought home VD to me on valentines. My mail hasn’t been delivered since Xmas and I need a break
I would very much love to have a serene getaway with my partner. We both love the breathtaking scenery and wildlife we’ve experienced around the river, and seeing it from afloat the river would be a whole new experience for us. We both work very hard and an escape would be greatly appreciated and savored fully. Thank you for offering this opportunity!
I never do anything fun.
Never been on the Portland spirit. I would love to experience this with my loved ones! Thank you for the opportunity to win!
I’ve never been on a little cruise before!
I would love to just do something for myself.
I would love to take my son on a little mommy/son cruise! Oh he would absolutely love so much! I can just see his beautiful face soaking up the sun on deck with the wind blowing through his hair. He would really just be so excited!
I personally would love to attend to have the life enriching experience, see the city from a new point of view and learn a few new things while attending such a lovely opportunity.
If we win, do we have to talk like a pirate while we’re on the boat?
We would like to go either way!
I would LOVE to surprise my partner for her birthday with a Spirit Cruise!!! The timing is perfect. This would be so romantic and fun.
I’d love to surprise my best friends with this!! Thanks so much for your consideration!
I would love to win to celebrate my special birthday with my vaccinated friends!!!!
Never been able to do this before, would love the unique look at the city
I would love to win because I’ve never been on the river before and I think it would be so romantic with my boyfriend. We both could really use a fun experience after a tough month. We are on a very strict budget and would never be able to afford this on our own. Good luck to everyone! 💕
My kids have never been on a boat! So that’s where y’all come in!
After a covid anniversary last year I’d like to treat the SO to something special for our two years!
Best wishes to all!
that would be really fun!
i love the water and ships. count me in.
I never win anything, giving this a try, just in case.
This dinner cruise would be so much fun! I know of a double date waiting to happen.
This would be amazing, much needed time together
I’ve never been in the spirit even though I’m a Portland native!
What a way to treat my queen like a queen.
Would love to go on a Portland adventure with my 25yr old son.
This could be my last year as the 2nd round of treatment for cervical and ovarian cancer is looking bleak. I want this summer to be one he will never forget. We live in Olympia and since we don’t drive, Portland is a short bus trip for us to have a getaway.
We just moved and could really use an Awesome night out on the river! Plus what better way to thank our friends for helping us move than a night out on the river.
It’s my 41st this month and I’d love to celebrate on the Spirit! The last time I went was for my HS graduation party back in ’98 and it was so fun! Please choose me!
I’m going blind so would like to see the city from this cruise so i can remember the city when I do go blind.
I want to propose to her again. Pick me.
I would love to go. I’ve never been on the river
A fun filled pdx event. Watch the land roll by as you enjoy a wonderful time wining and dining. Would love to take the husband and friends on this amazing outing.
My partner is taking just first kickboxing fight the night before on Saturday and I would like to take him out on a cruise to celebrate- win or lose. My household is fully vaccinated and none of us have ever been on a cruise!
my birthay is coming up and i have been quarantined with 6 kids this whole time. i would really love some “adult” outing time with my husband and a couple friend.
Omg I would looooove to win this. This would be for a secret first date. How exciting
I’d love to have a meal on the cruise to remember. Tired of cooking at home during Covid.
I want to hear the entertainment on the cruise.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Oh my goodness. It is my best friend’s birthday and we have all been having a rough go of it lately. This would be AMAZING! And unforgettable. Thank you for your consideration and we love PDX!!
This would be so fun! 🙂
My wife and I recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. We’re also celebrating our newfound freedom after receiving our second COVID vaccinations and we would LOVE to spend a fun evening on the river, toasting to our health, eating delicious food and having a great time.
Thanks so much for sponsoring this great giveaway.
I’m planning the post-pandemic summer of Jill, and this would be a great way to kick it off 😉
This would be the most glorious way of celebrating the change of season and getting our vaccines! I’ve always wanted to go on the dinner cruise, fingers crossed ! <3
Hi, I work at a Senior Living & have continued working FT since Pandemic started. I haven’t had a vacation since 2019. Being able to go on the Spirit Cruise would be just what I need to relax & enjoy myself with my boyfriend & friends.
Hi! This would be a great way to celebrate my 30th birthday and the end of a very very traumatizing semester in law school. My boyfriend and I have never been to the area and this would be such a great way to see the city!
I would love to take my kiddos!!! You guys rock!!! I hope to be the winner of this Amazing prize!!
Id love to attend this weekend more THAN ANYTHING! It has been a rough past week and this would be a phenomenal way to end it, with a tour around my favorite city’s waterfront.
I would love to attend this weekend or any other time because its been on my list to experience this in Portland. Every time i decided i want to go, something comes up and it doesn’t happen.
I’ve always wanted to go on here but could never afford it. This would be so great.
I think this would be a good opportunity to re-connect with my close friends who I haven’t been able to see since the pandemic. Nothing like, a nice cruise down and up the Willamette enjoying some good conversations, company and food. Because together we can become healthier, authentic, and our better selfs.
Who was the winner, was drawing on April 19?
My university degree will officially be conferred on May 14th! With this in mind, I will also be leaving Portland in June. This would be an amazing way to commemorate my graduation and departure from Portland with my roommates.
Thanks for doing this and I hope whoever wins has an amazing time!
what do you do when your ex husband leaves you after 40 years of marriage.? feeling lost. i really need this outing please. thanks.
Im feeling depressed. i need this.
I’ve never been on the spirit. It would be such a fun way to see the city and with my close friends. Thank you for and good to be selected! 🙂
We got Spirit, yes we do!
I would take my in-laws who are vaccinated and love cruises. They haven’t been in so long!
We are visiting Portland for the first time in October !

So Ready to take the Family to do something fun after Ice storm, Fires and Covid!!!
Would like a get away!!!
Can I win these tickets please? I’ve never been on the Spirit before!
Brunch on the river with my love sounds amazing ❤️
I love boats and entertainment! The Portland Spirit is an Oregon staple, so I’d love for a chance to hop on! Most of the time, when I’m on the Willamette, I’m on a kayak. This would be an upgrade a great change of pace!
I’d love to be there to celebrate my hubby’s bday!
This would be awesome!!!
This would be an incredible way to celebrate the start of summer with my group of friends. We are all finally vaccinated and excited to get the year going 🙂 It has been along time coming and a evening on the water would be impeccable.
I would like to win to be on a boat, with people, doing a thing, for free
My boyfriend and I are going to the pnw and would love tickets to this. Maybe he’ll propose 😊😊
i would love to win because it’s been a HELLUVA year & would love to just float away for a few hours 🙂
I would be blown away with gratitude to win a getaway. So much stress in the world lately! I am a waitress so employment has has been absolutely bonkers. Home schooling the kiddos, multiple unpleasant medical “surprises” requiring surgery, Neighbors tree fell on my car completely totaling it and insurance will not cover it, My boyfriends boss (owner of company) passed away which left him unemployed….I could go on and on but my point is a lovely relaxing few hours of this would be an absolutely amazing break in the clouds.
Hi there! I stumbled across pdxpipeline while looking for social things to do as the city is slowing opening back up. I moved to Portland back in 2019 to begin college and was shortly after locked down in student housing. Not really able to develop friendships at school or go out, my roommate and I became very close. She is a recent college graduate with a job lined up to teach English in Japan, but has been stuck in Oregon because of travel restrictions. I would really love to do something nice for her as we have become great friends over the past year. Thank you for reading!
my birthday is friday and i am celebrating by getting my 2nd vaccine dose. would be lovely to have something to look forward to once i was all healed up!
this would be a lovely experience.
I would love to win! I’d pick my guy of course to go with me to enjoy the beautiful Portland sights.
Please put my name into the drawing! What a wonderful time this would be!
I would love to win this! I wanted to go on this dinner cruise in celebration of my partner graduating university, but because of finances couldn’t afford to do so after looking at ticket prices (both of our hours were cut due to COVID). He deserves this celebration as he is an educator committed to his students, going above and beyond during virtual learning due to the pandemic, even after getting his hours cut, he still committed to full time to help his students.
It would be great to win this for my birthday present june 19th I will be 54 years young I love Portland spirit I love Portland!
Now that would be a blast .pick me!
I would love to experience this with my family!! I’ve been wanting to this for so long !!

A couple of old friends celebrating a 70th birthday would be so appreciative of this – and have so much fun! We are ready when you are! Thank you.
I would love to win this!
Would love to visit Portland and do this!
my boyfriend & i are going on our first trip together to portland july 1-5 to visit my sister for my nieces 3rd birthday & i have never been on a cruise before & it would be a really great experience for the both of us & i can also invite my sister & her boyfriend. we don’t get to travel or do much often so it would be an experience !
I’ve got a buddy visiting Portland in June for his Birthday and this would be an amazing Birthday surprise for him to see the city!!
Why I would like to win the tickets..
I want to win them and then give them away to people in the building I live in
