American Cruise Lines Itineraries

Itineraries stretch the entire eastern seaboard from Penobscot Bay in Maine all the way to Florida. During the summer, New England Island cruises stop at Block Island, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, while the Maine Coast and Harbor cruise sails roundtrip from Portland, ME. Seven-night Chesapeake Bay itineraries out of Baltimore are offered from June straight through the fall. Particularly popular are the October trips up the scenic Hudson River, when the fall foliage bursts with color and the crisp air is invigorating. There are also a handful of Philadelphia and Potomac River voyages, and the paddlewheeler Queen of the West offers cruises along the Columbia and Snake Rivers.

Longer trips are also available sailing south through the Inland Passageway from Baltimore to Florida. November, December, February, March and April see the ships sailing Historic Antebellum itineraries between Jacksonville and Charleston, and a Great Rivers of Florida itinerary roundtrip from Jacksonville. An occasional cruise to Okeechobee Swamp is also offered.

In 2012, Queen of the Mississippi will begin plying the entire Mississippi River System. A number of unique seven-night cruises are planned that take passengers as far as St. Paul on the Mississippi River and Pittsburgh on the Ohio River. Also in 2012, American Spirit will operate ACL's first-ever Alaska cruises starting June 2012.

This cruise was a pleasant surprise. The critics, we felt, were harsh and not very fair. Yes the rooms were small and it was pricey but there were ... Read more
