Would not recommend to others. Food and service only fair. Overall rating on scale of 1-10 would be seven (7).Cruise director attractive and friendly but inefficient. Made a number of mistakes for our group on excursion scheduling. Hotel director inexperienced as was the entire crew. Cabin service was ok but not great. On two occasions room was not made up until the afternoon and then only ...

A great cruise on a small boat - about 100 people. Smaller makes for more friendly. The chef told us at the beginning we would be eating lobster daily and that we did, at nearly every of the 3 meals a day. The lobster omelet was especially tasty. The on land trips were informative and we were allowed time to go out on our own as well. The cruise director Chelsea was just full of enthusiasm ...

Older ship, but wonderful cruise company

We chose this cruise for our second one with ACL for two reasons: we are very impressed with the service and atmosphere of this cruise line and it was a lobster cruise. Yes, this ship was an older one, but that did not interfere with its charm - of course we prefer the personal service the smaller ships provide rather than the glitz and glam of the huge hotels on water. You will get to know ...

DO NOT BOOK THIS CRUISE LINE

Three friends and I chose this cruise for the easy access to embarkation port, Seattle, and the itinerary of daily visits to small ports in the WA area. This experience was devastating from the initial step aboard. Had it been half the price, we would have had the attitude, "You get what you pay for." However, one can book Oceania, Crystal, Celebrity or any high end cruise for the same amount ...

About two years ago we did the Lobster Cruise out of Portland, Maine. That was so good we booked this one out of Providence, RI. We were not disappointed. I like the American Cruise Line because of its informality. You do not need dress up clothes like you do on the big ships. You may want to take a few extra tops to wear in the evening to gussy up a bit but just a little bit. It is very ...

The food was wonderful, but the ship needs renovating.

We chose this cruise because of the number of guests. We have been on large ships before and wanted a change.This was absolutely great,so personable and the comradery worked well. We met lots of nice people and also had a celebrity onboard(which says a lot for the cruise line). The personal service was a plus,since it was easy to get to know the crew and they were excellent.The hotel manager was ...

Great lobster feast cruise

We wanted to see the Islands of Nantucket and Martha's vineyard, and it was a lobster bake cruise. The food was amazing, with an authentic lobster bake in the sand. This was my first cruise, and I enjoyed getting to know all of the 91 passengers. The small boat cruising is the only way to go. My husband and I have booked another small boat cruise to Alaska for next August. That will be on a ...

From the Captain to the steward who cleaned our cabin, the service was friendly and exceptional. The management team on board were always available, communicated extremely well, and could not do enough for the passengers. The 'hired hands', most of whom are working for a few months to earn money for college, were well trained, friendly and courteous, and always had a smile on their face. The ...

A Nice Small Cruise Ship (98 passengers) But OVERPRICED!

This was my first cruise on a small ship. The cruise itself was the 7 night New England Island Cruise. The ship was fine and the food was very good but that's a given. They offer a complementary happy hour each evening and complementary alcoholic beverages at lunch and dinner. This ship does not have stabilizers and one morning we spent 4 hours really rocking and rolling. Many passengers and ...

We decided to take a small boat cruise for our 1st cruise. There were only 70 people on board.There was open seating in the dining room. You got to talk to everybody. There was an open bar at cocktail hour and dress was casual. The food was fabulous. The cruise was more a relaxing cruise for people 50 and over even though we had 2 families with pre-teen-teenagers. It was more expensive than some ...
