We wanted to try a river cruise within the US and upon discovering the Civil War themed cruise on the Mississippi, hoped this would be informative and fun. It was even better than we had hoped. Only about 140 people on board so we truly ... Read more

We wanted to stay in the US this year for vacation and since we had not visited the states where the ship docked, we felt this would be a good fit. We are also interested in the Civil War and we thought that would make the cruise more ... Read more

Our initial experience was bad in that the cruise line failed to pick us up at the hotel for transfer to the ship, taking our luggage but leaving us behind and then just shrugging this off with no real apology or effort to make the ... Read more

We chose to drive to New Orleans and stay one pre-cruise night at the Omni. The next morning, we drove to the dock and parked in the cruise parking deck. You should know that parking is not free, nor is it cheep. This was the only down ... Read more

I had always been intrigued with ACL because of the "small cruise sailing" reputation. I was very pleased with the size of the clientele and crew, (143 guests on this particular boat). This enabled one to actually get to know ... Read more

The cruise on the lower half of the Mississippi River was a thoroughly enjoyable week. I wanted to observe traffic on the river, as well as check out what development is or isn’t (or once was) on the banks of the river. All of that ... Read more

This was our first cruise with American Cruise Line, but it will not be our last. Everyone on the cruise was so friendly, guests and crew, that you felt like being on a family reunion for the week. The Queen of the Mississippi had a golf ... Read more

I have sailed 3 cruises with American Cruise Lines and had the highest 5 Star service on all three cruises (Chesapeake Bay, Martha's Vineyard/Nantucket and the lower Mississippi). The crews are exceptionally well trained and showed great ... 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

We chose a 4 night cruise because we had not been on a cruise in the last fifty years and wanted to be sure we would like it before taking a longer one. We were treated to an overnight stay in New Orleans the night before embarkation and ... Read more

Never take this cruise. They talk about some great tours and cancel many of them along the way. The food is not good, the service is mostly done by interns that are learning and it is super over priced for receiving close to nothing. ... Read more

for the experience of a river cruise we chose this one. The length seemed right and we wanted to see the south. Being able to do a pre & post stay was also why we selected this cruise. We have done about 10 cruises in the past- but ... Read more
