American Alaska Cruise Reviews

Going into New Orleans is one processing plant after another. Talking with the historian on board the Melody, he noted that the area around New Orleans is the most chemically dangerous part of the world for the environment. Therefore, they have the strictest pollution control laws of anywhere on the planet.
The closer we got to New Orleans the more often we saw ocean going vessels loading up materials from the processing plants.
Along the way we saw more and more processing plants for all types of materials many of which were oil based . . .
Soon we were seeing beautiful homes along the banks of the Mississippi as we headed to New Orleans.

What a disappointment

Review for American Constellation to Alaska

After cruising with American Cruise Line in 2021 on the Snake & Columbia Rivers we could not wait to book another trip. We will not sail with them again. This cruise was a series of disappointments. To be fair, the weather was certainly not their fault but it did obscure the views of snow capped mountains we anticipated on all but one day. The Baranoff Hotel - where ACL put us up the night before ...

American cruise lines All of the main dining area food servers are absolutely excellent. Saturday is our first day aboard. Our room is clean. The first sign of trouble is at dinner they are out of vanilla ice cream. Wait, we just left the dock. We are told some truck failed to arrive. The next day in Skedway Ak we find the galley guy trying to buy ice cream in this little town. He was ...

We recently travelled to Juneau and sailed onboard the ACL Constellation with about 150 other passengers. We have been on many previous Alaska cruises, all on much larger ships, and thoroughly enjoyed the benefits of small-ship cruising. With the open seating at smaller round tables in the dining room, we soon got to know the majority of our onboard companions and had lively and fun conversations ...

This was an incredible experience. The ship had only 150 passengers, so it felt more like an excursion. Everything was well planned and unique. We were able to go whale watching right on our own ship. The captain was able to double back when wildlife was spotted. We saw many Whales, Sea Lions, Bald Eagles and Bear. Many side trips were included. My favorite was the trip to Potlatch Totem Park in ...

My husband and I recently took ACL’s Alaska Inside Passage Cruise on their American Constellation (September 1-15, 2021). ACL made it the trip of a lifetime for us as we'd never been to Alaska before, and it was indeed very special overall. There were so many special moments that it’s hard to list them. Naturally, our room was everything we’d come to expect from ACL…roomy with plenty of ...

First time to Alaska, ship and staff were great. Excursions were great also I did quite a few. Now the downer side. We have cruised with American cruise lines before on a Mississippi river cruise from New Orleans to St Louis. The food was of high end and fabulous. Large bacon wrapped scallops, crab stuffed lobster tail cajun crawfish etc. The Alaskan trip no crab the whole trip no snow crab ...

The Absolute Worst Cruise That I Have Ever Taken

Small Ship Cruising Done Poorly Before I get into my review, here are some disclaimers as well as what I am basing my opinions on. The cost of this cruise ranged from $5500+ (U.S.) on up. This is key, as the brochures and other written material, as well as conversations with American Cruise Line staff members purported this to be a luxury/high-end cruise experience. Other factors ...

Eager to travel after the restrictions of the past year and a half, we chose this small ship Alaskan cruise. We had visited Alaska four times before, always on large cruise ships. We had taken one other ACL trip - Lewis & Clark, the Columbia and Snake Rivers. There were some "issues" on that trip - ACL seems to suffer communication deficiencies, but we were willing to try them again. I ...

WE CHOSE AMERICAN, BECAUSE THE LARGE CRUISE SHIPS WEREN'T SAILING. The food was outstanding! No buffets, all plate service at your table. We enjoyed that! Smaller ship meant less passengers, maybe 150 on our cruise. Easy off and on the ship. All alcohol was included in the price. It may cost more on a smaller ship but to us, it was well worth the attention we received from the crew!! All ...

The trip was a disaster. We sailed out on July 4th—four people tested positive on the fourth full day. The trip was canceled.

I wanted to escape the heat and stay in the USA. I thought it would be safer. This is a crummy, cheap company and they get away with it because their repeat clientele knows no better. They say they have wi-fi. Don’t believe it. Not enough bandwidth to download anything. No decent films. They have DVDs that are antiques and I had no player. When people contracted COVID, they took too long to tell ...
