The Lobster Cruise was our first ACL Cruise. Overall the cruise was an outstanding experience. It was a very laid back cruise, which is exactly what we were looking for. The crew was very young and worked very hard, part of the time ... Read more

The New England Islands cruise aboard the American Star was our second trip with American Cruise Lines. Just like the first cruise, this was such a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it to all. From the moment we got to the ... Read more

This shockingly poor experience on American Cruiselines really should be told to warn future travelers just how bad a simple cruise can be. The first obvious situation we encountered was the totally untrained staff which included a brand ... Read more

We paid a lot of money for this cruise, way more than for a luxury ship. It left Charlotte, SC and was supposed to sail to Jacksonville, Fl. Instead, it stopped at Fernandina Beach. That messed up the connection plans of quite a few of the ... Read more

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the cocktail and Hors d' oeuvres in the Chesapeake lounge. The room was set up in a relaxing and friendly manor. The Hors d' oeuvres were delicious they were brought around fresh and hot. We loved the fresh ... Read more

We went with 2 other couples and had a wonderful time. The crew was wonderful and the wait staff was outstanding. We really enjoyed the young staff. They were so full of energy and were always so helpful. Janine, Val, Davita and the chef ... Read more

We toured the islands in RI. Shore excursions were awesome. Loved having the young students as servers as they were fun, polite, helpful and gracious. Food and anything you wanted for food or drinks met any requests. Jaene, cruise director ... Read more

This cruise was extremely inconsistent in service, dining, entertainment and excursions For the amount of money we spent (over $8000) we expected to have outstanding service and dining. Real lobster crackers are a must for whole lobsters - ... Read more

With beautiful weather we left Baltimore's Inner Harbor and sailed down the Bay under two bridges the second being the double spans of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The ship had only 54 passengers so over the cruise we met many of them. They ... Read more

American Cruise Lines always does a great job: interesting ports, great food, good lecturers, caring staff and large cabins. They do everything to cater to their passengers including paying postage on letters and complimentary cocktail ... Read more

First, let me say that this was our third cruise on the American Star, and that we have already booked two more with American Cruise Lines--on the Mississippi and then in Maine. Previously we toured the New England Islands and the ... Read more

First, we chose this cruise based on its destination and ports. We wanted to visit Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, but did not want to drive in the local traffic. As avid cruisers, this looked like the perfect option. With that said, ... Read more

We've made a small habit of seeing the sights during the shoulder and off season. Cruising Alaska and Europe in winter were rewarding for both the lack of crowds, the easy to see sights and most interestingly a good mix of other ... Read more

This was my first cruise. We choose American Cruise Lines since we wanted a small intimate cruise line, and weren't sure how we would handle the larger ships or seas. Also living in Florida, we only had to drive to St. Augustine to catch ... Read more

All I can say is WOW! My husband and I took our first 7 day cruise along the southern part of the Eastern shore of the United States. We left from Jacksonville, Florida. We were greeted on the ship by a friendly, warm staff, served a ... Read more

Port of embarkation was Clarkston, Wa. on 10/22. I have to say, this is our 2nd cruise with American Cruise Lines and it was terribly disappointing. The cabins were awful - a little decor goes a long way instead of everything being a ... Read more

Okay, my first time to post a review: We went on American Cruise Lines New England Islands trip. The cruise was a disappointment in these areas: Accommodations: the furnishings in the lounge, our room, and small public areas looked very ... Read more
