Fun on the REALLY LOW Lower Mississippi
"If you are interested in this history rich area of the country, I highly suggest seeing it from the river.In some instances, our distance to the ports was increased because of river conditions which meant for longer rides, but I can’t fault ACL for that...."Read More

Christmas Aboard the American Symphony

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

Mable2746
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

The American Symphony was christened in 2022, it is a lovely ship with so many areas away from your staterooms which are larger than most and beautifully appointed, including a reading room, game room, and office with two computers, which came in handy when getting your boarding pass for your return home . Our stops along the great Mississippi river were Natchez, Vicksburg, St. Francisville, ...

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

GaryOGreen
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and wanted something that would give us a different look at a vacation. We had never been on a cruise before. We were exceptionally pleased with our choice. The crew members each appeared to enjoy their job and made an extra effort to ensure that if we asked for something, they would find a way to make it happen. We were pleased with our cruise director ...

Cruising the Historic South on a New Boat!

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

I took this cruise in November 2022. (The drop-down menu won't let me change from January) I had cruised previously with American Cruise Lines on a paddlewheel on the upper Mississippi River and I wanted to see the lower Mississippi this year. I learned they had a brand new boat called the Symphony and I wanted to see how it was different from the one cruised on last year. It was very ...

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

Jackie M.
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

After seeing the new “Elvis” movie, I wanted to visit Graceland in Memphis. After seeing photos of the new American Symphony, I wanted to experience a cruise on the beautiful riverboat. So, I combined both of those hopes into one wonderful experience. I cruised from Memphis to New Orleans on the American Symphony in November. I also chose the two-night pre-cruise Elvis Experience in Memphis ...

Fun on the REALLY LOW Lower Mississippi

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

I was a solo traveler on the American Symphony on the Lower Mississippi. I was expecting some challenges due to the historically low water levels, which is obviously beyond anyone’s control. Fortunately, the crew helped make the best of the unavoidable deviations with helpful attitudes and friendly faces. This went a long way towards making the trip a positive experience. The vessel is new and I ...

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We cruised on the new American Symphony from Nov 2-7 2022. Our stateroom was spacious, very clean and the staff was very friendly. There seemed to be a disconnect with upper management and the staff when questions arose . So....Our river cruise on the Mississippi was cut short (not ACL's fault as the Mississippi was low). However other issues during the cruise left everyone perplexed on how to ...

Absolutely a disaster

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

DavidSimia
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We left New Orleans on November 2 and it went downhill from there. We are experienced travelers and thought a trip up the Mississippi would be fun, particularly for a shipping co. that claims to cater to seniors. WRONG!! This was a disaster. Before I note the reasons, let me positive...The ship was new! On the other hand: * The crew was terribly inexperienced. * 90% of the Management was ...

Once they have your money...

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

DM Smith
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We sailed November 2-9 on the American Symphony from New Orleans to Memphis. Less than 48 hours before sailing we were notified that we would be bused from Vicksburg to Memphis because of low river levels. The cruise line can't control the river levels, but this was a major change and they didn't offer any opportunity to cancel and get a refund. Once we got to Memphis the hotel and food ...

A disappointment for the price I paid!

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Symphony

Wendy S
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I took a lower Mississippi River cruise on the American Cruise Line boat the Symphony November 2-9. The boat and our room was nice, food was good and the crew was very friendly. The entertainment was okay, and some of the excursions were good some were not. The long bus rides definitely made some of the excursions less desirable. My complaint was the low water level. ACL can't help the low water ...
