First of all, this new ship is amazing, the decor is sophisticated. I love the plants added to the upper sun deck area. This is my fifth ACL cruise. You won't find a friendlier group of passengers and crew. If you haven't taken the small ship experience you are missing out. You meet people from all over the US. The rooms are spacious with a full size bathroom. The food had been great. I am ...

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 ...

My husband and I were thrilled to book one of the American Melody's first river cruises as it debuted on the Mississippi! It exceeded our expectations! The ship is beautifully appointed and when we relaxed on the 4th floor outside deck we could almost imagine we were on our own private yacht...with a staff to guest ratio of approximately 2 to 1 we were guaranteed to have phenomenal service! ...

New, comfortable ship, Great staff. Informative lectures, interesting excursions, and wonderful food. All inclusive makes each day easy to manage. Large stateroom, balcony large enough for two chairs and a table, walk in shower. Small lounge on each of the four floors for relaxation, card playing, puzzle working, computering (complete with printer). Quiet, swift elevator. All areas clean, and kept ...

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 ...

Columbia River Cruise--avoid it

Review for Queen of the West to U.S.A.

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Our cruise was disappointing. The Queen of the West is an old boat and is poorly maintained. Light bulbs are missing. Furniture is worn. The tours were really poor. The trip is advertised as tracing the course of Lewis and Clark, and there were two talks about Lewis and Clark--one at the beginning and one on the last day. There was no mention of them during the intervening days, and the tours to ...

Expensive trip for overall experience

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The first night - pre-cruise hotel was the Red Lion in Portland, Oregon as selected by American Cruise Lines. This hotel was dated and dirty. We had to change rooms to get one that didn't smell like cigarettes. A lot of homeless people surround the area. Not the type of accommodations you would expect for the amount of money spent on the cruise. Now for the cruise. The boat is very nice and ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Beautiful scenery, food disappointing

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We wanted to cruise from Portland and see the river scenery. On this we were not disappointed. The scenery was gorgeous and the ship is beautiful. There are plenty of opportunities to grab beverages and snacks throughout the day, but the food in the dining room left a lot to be desired. Often food arrived barely warm and portions were often small - my husband joked that the prime rib was so thin ...

We were the only passengers from New Orleans on the cruise up the Mississippi. Even though we had to get to Jackson MS instead of being picked up in New Orleans (hurricane Ida got there first) the trip was exceptional in all respects. American decided to make all excursions (except Graceland and one other) no cost a nice gesture given the mess in getting everyone to the boat. The 21 days it ...
