Why Choose American Spirit?

  • Onboard relaxation and beautiful scenery are pretty much a guarantee.
  • Minimal entertainment and limited land excursions will leave active cruisers bored.
  • Good for older travelers who need a slower paced cruise experience.

American Spirit for Families

Editor Rating

With the average age of the passengers quite high, there are no facilities or staff set aside for children. An occasional family or grandchild helps to bring that average down slightly on the summer New England and Maine sailings. Older, mature children that don't need to be constantly attended, and like trips to their grandparent's house, could get by on a week's cruise.

A third person with cots can be accommodated in the cabins, although this isn't advertised in the brochure.
