Amazing River Cruise

Review for American Pride to North America River

The Columbia/Snake river on The American Pride was truly amazing. We had an incredible crew that took care of us. The speaker, David Miller not only delivered a great lecture on Lewis and Clark expedition, but enhanced our experience by displaying artifacts and foliage of the region. David gave us information about the many locks we went through. Lots of historical facts. Arts and crafts classes ...

October 19th, 2021 Who we are: All of us were fully vaccinated and followed all guidelines during the cruise. We are seasoned cruisers and have been on both river and ocean cruises in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Why we chose ACL: Like many other travelers we were ready to cruise but wanted to stay in the USA. Wanted to see Washington and Oregon and this sounded ...

Expensive Columbia River Cruise NOT done perfectly

Just finished 1 week cruise on Queen of West Columbia & Snake River in Oct 2021. It was NOT "Small Ship Cruising Done Perfectly". The old ship is like a 2.5 star motel. The advertised "Exquisite Cuisine" was B average . The dinner rolls were always room temperature and hard. I recommend they switch to Hawaiian Sweet Rolls so that it's always soft. "Acclaimed Entertainment" consisted of ...

We chose this cruise because the itinerary looked interesting, the Covid-19 protocols seemed safe, and the other reviews of the cruise line looked promising. Big mistake. Huge. The positives: interior crew was amazing! Such great attitudes and service by the stewardesses and dining staff. They were friendly, helpful, fun, and funny. The negatives: everything else. Our itinerary got ...

Bad tripping with American Cruise Line

Clearly this cruise in the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound was not worth the price. The ‘ship’ we boarded looked nothing like the website picture in that the actual ship was clearly old and worn out. Rust was evident everywhere. The carpeting on the stairs needed to be thrown out, not just cleaned, it was that dirty and stained. That was the very first thing we noticed as we boarded and then ...

Worst cruise in 40 years of cruising

We were totally misled. This ship (Spirit 2) was supposed to cruise Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. The name of the tour needs to be changed to Stop and Dock. We NEVER spent one day cruising. It was advertised with one (1) day at sea and we had NONE.....Zero.....Zilch. We stayed at a dock every night except one where we anchored. There was nothing to see in any of the towns we stopped ...

During a previous cruise, many fellow passengers said this was the best American mainland cruise they have been on. We agree. Scenery was phenomenal, going from the rain forest in Astoria, OR to wheat fields in Clarkston, WA. Excursions were interesting with very knowledgeable and entertaining guides. Focus was on Lewis and Clark's travel through the area. The small towns we visited turned out ...

Puget Sound Cruise on the American Spirit

I selected this cruise because the route sounded interesting and it was all I could find last January. BIG MISTAKE !!! This ship reminded me of something you would find plying the Volga River in about 1975. Outdated and never up dated is the name of the cruise. Ship built in 2005 and not maintained very well. The staff for the most part were kids that had no idea what their job was. The food, if ...

Wonderful Cruise on American Harmony on the Columbia and Snake River

We very much enjoyed our ACL cruise on the American Harmony in July. This was our second ACL cruise. We boarded in Portland, and the accommodations were so convenient, we were able to walk from the hotel to the ship dock! From a COVID perspective, we felt safe being on a ship with everyone tested and vaccinated, and there were many reminders from the staff to wear your mask, and most people ...

A Great Puget Sound Cruise

DH and I are from Upstate NY and are in our early 60's. Of course, Covid wiped out two cruises we had scheduled in 2020 and two in 2021; our TA called and wondered if we'd be interested in an American Cruise Lines sailing. She had recommended the Columbia/Snake River cruise, but I saw the Puget Sound cruise and thought I'd like to try it. Covid added some extra requirements; we had to submit ...
