We were bumped to this boat after our original boat (another cruise line) had problems. We were extremely lucky to have been reassigned to America Cruise Line. I've been on about six other cruise lines and this was the best yet. The food ... Read more

We saw this cruise advertised in the AARP magazine, so when friends suggested we join them, we signed up. The cabin was very nice and spacious, and very clean, with good storage space for clothes and bathroom items. The food was really ... Read more

Near to places where family lives. Wanted to go to Williamsburg. Didn't like paying for other people to drink as much as they wanted as I barely drink. Don't think I will chose a cruise with unlimited alcohol included. WiFI was awful. ... Read more

This cruise was our first but will not be our last. Having heard many cruise stories my wife and I were prepared for the worst but surprise - no worries just great service and six days of enjoyment. We found Baltimore to be a little dated ... Read more

We wanted a vacation with easy access on board and on the daily outings. This ship is designed for that. Starting with the ramp with rails on both side to get on and off, the bars in the bathroom and shower for stability, and the ... Read more

It was a great opportunity to experience the Mighty Mississippi and tour antebellum plantations and Civil War history. The America is a very comfortable boat (on the river, it's a boat!). The staterooms are generous and the balconies are ... Read more

We had been wanting to visit Butchart Gardens and found this to be an opportunity to visit the Gardens and take a small ship cruise at the same time. It was all we had hoped for. Small ship cruising is wonderful if you're older and love ... Read more

This cruise was a small boat cruise, with about 120 passengers onboard. We had a great time. We have cruised on large ships, but really enjoyed the smaller ship and getting to know the people we were traveling with. The meals were ... Read more

The cruise on the Mississippi River on a paddle wheel style boat has been a 50 year dream for me. If you want lots of activities on board, people running around and lots of noise you will not not find it here. If you want some privacy, ... Read more

My husband and I have always cruised on larger ships and wanted to try the small ship cruising experience. Also, while we have traveled oversees many times, we really haven’t seen as much of the U.S as we’d liked and felt it ... Read more
