American Romantic Cruises 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.

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This cruise was really amazing, the staff was very friendly and always there to help with anything or answer any questions you have. The cabin was spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and we slept great every night. We just can't wait to go on our next adventure with them. The excursions were fun and there was lots of information given about all the spots we stopped at. The busses you ...

Hudson River Splendor

We had a wonderful cruise on the Hudson River in October 2022. We couldn’t believe our eyes as we enjoyed mile after mile of fantastic fall foliage color. Although we live in the northeast, we have never seen such a display of nature’s splendor. The food, crew, and the company are exceptional. Small ship sailing, easy, safe, and close to home, is for us! The crew on this ship were delightful ...

This was our second cruise on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington with ACL. The views and locks are spectacular and the pace is very relaxing. Each town visited has an interesting history and quaint personality. American Cruise Lines provides a fantastically safe environment for aging guests or for those travelling alone. The small ships ensure that you'll be able to meet and make ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was our second river cruise on American Cruise lines, but we had sailed many times before on large cruise ships to the Caribbean and Alaska. None of those ocean cruises could be considered even a close second to this last cruise on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. This ship has a capacity of 150 passengers; so much nicer than dealing with thousands of passengers. Disembarking and returning ...

Authentic paddlewheel ship with a bright new interior

America West is one of the last authentic paddlewheel ships you can experience. We sailed on this cute little piece of nostalgia in July 2022. She had apparently just undergone a beautiful renovation of her interior. Now she has the same bright and modern decor as ACL's newer ships. The Columbia/Snake River is a beautiful itinerary and the Lewis & Clark themed cruise was a piece of history ...

Unbelievable Trip through Maine

Review for American Independence (formerly Independence) to U.S.A.

I chose this cruise because I live in Florida and felt the weather in Maine was the best weather in the US in summer. Also I love lobster and was excited that it was a big part of the cruise. I was in Maine over 40 years ago and loved it. This cruise covered Bar Harbor, my past destination and so much more. I love the intimacy of American CruiseLine. You actually get to make friends. There are no ...

Having been on 40+ cruises, I'm sorry to report, this one was the worst I ever experienced.

I want to confirm that this review is based on my own experiences and is factually correct and represents my honestly held views. We embarked from Clarkston, Washington sailed to Pendelton, Oregon and on to The Dalles, Oregon stopping again at The Multnomah Falls in Stevenson, Washington and finally disembarked in Portland, Oregon. Both the slow ride and small towns we stopped in were ...

I live in Florida so the opportunity for the perfect summer weather of Maine was a perfect getaway. Lobster on this trip put the icing on the cake! We had a terrific time following our way from Bar Harbor's Cadillac Mountain through small towns of Rockland and Camden ending in Portland. The food, and entertainment were wonderful. There was a terrific speaker on board and a resident ...

I really enjoyed my relaxing cruise on the Mississippi. Staff really catered to all of our needs. Cruise price included excursions in every port. I had the chance to learn many things about the civil war, visit museums, and several beautiful plantations. Tour guides were very entertaining.Back on the ship we had relevant lectures and even had the opportunity to take a fun art class. In the evening ...
