Line needs some work

After having cruised Alaska last year with Celebrity we wanted to try a smaller ship for the off the path stops. The Constellation was just the size we were looking for. The precruise hotel was an old one. While ...

Big disappointment. Training crew, and downhill from there.

The only reason I didn't give this cruise a one out of five is because a few things went well, including embarkation and disembarkation; plus, the poorly trained staff at least tried (for the most part). Our ...

Relaxing and Luxurious

I got to go in this cruise because a friend if a friend of a friend could no longer go and sold it for a fraction of the price. It was the best vacation I've ever had. I'm not one for a lot of words, so this will be ...

Great cruise but needs more variety on excursions & entertainment

We like ACL and this is our 3rd cruise with them. Pluses: We booked our next cruise with them while on board to get the 15% savings. and no port charges. We like the intimacy of a smaller ship with less hassles ...

Nice Relaxing Cruise with Great Scenery

This is our second cruise in Alaska. The first was a large ship cruise, which convinced us to take a small ship cruise to allow to see more of Alaska. We cruised out of Juneau, AK and returned to Juneau. The ...

Small ship cruising at its finest

First time cruising family. We looked for a small ship with an elevator to take our 97 year old mom back to Alaska where she lived for a year in 1947. American Cruise Lines fit the bill. I can't say enough ...

We wanted to experience Alaska but on a small boat. So much better than a big boat - a more diverse range of ports, a chance to meet everyone on board, the ability to stop and chase the wildlife rather than sticking ...

Two cruises to Alaska. Scenery and wildlife are sights to behold.

This was our third cruise with American Cruise Lines. We have always enjoyed ourselves. Small ship cruising is, imho, the only way to go. Ships carry 80-some passengers, with a crew or 30 or so. There is always ...
