Stateroom from hell if you’re a senior citizen!

Everything was great, except for the stateroom . It was the worst we have ever had in my 50 plus years of cruising.They need to retire this 29 year boat. The brochure claims modern design features and amenities. Recently renovated- No phone in room, TV is analog with 5 stations, wires hanging off wall, had to request extension card to have hight stand light and bathroom is the a step up affair. ...

Not quite up to 5 stars for the cost

We took our first river cruse for 7 days, down the Snake and Columbia. It was Lewis and Clark themed, on the newer Harmony. This type cruse might be considered all first class. Large room with a balcony, drinks, meals, most shore excursions were included. As we booked early for the first week in June, they included coach air fare, as well as a night stay before the cruse at a hotel nearby. Airport ...

We have cruised on larger ships in the past and we were not so sure about this river cruise, however, we were not disappointed! Ship is newer and smooth sailing. Not once did we feel the ship rocking! Staff is great! Jake, Alicia, Zach, Heidi. Kiera, chef Jason, Kyle, Aisha, just to name a few of the great staff! The scenery was great from Charleston, SC to Amelia island, FL. The ...

A relaxing, enjoyable experience

We had a relaxing, enjoyable experience on our recent cruise on the lower Mississippi. This was our first river cruise and was much different than the ocean cruises we were used to. The cruise was more expensive than our nine previous cruises but almost everything was included - no constant pressure to buy. We spent the evening prior to the cruise at the Graceland Guest House, a very nice ...

Warm Staff and good service

The staff was very friendly and helpful. the food was the best we have had on all of our 16 ACL cruises and Luca was not only a great chef but also very friendly and outgoing. He was observed carrying trays and serving meals. When I mentioned that he did everything, he replied by saying that he did whatever needed to be done because they were family. The staff did indeed act like a family. I ...

Path of Lewis & Clark

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

It was a scenic and educational cruise, along the paths of Lewis & Clark. The food and service was commendable. At times the enthusiasm of the leader reminded me of a high school pep rally, a bit over the top. The complimentary excursions were excellent. The only two complaints we have are that the cruise line changed the departure hotel after we had our own made plans to arrive a day early; that ...

Lower your expectations

Review for a U.S.A. Cruise on American Splendor (formerly America)

We chose ACL instead of Viking for the Lower Mississippi cruise because the first segment on Viking was a bus trip from Memphis vs. a riverboat segment on ACL. If you have become used to a certain level of amenities, professionalism, cleanliness, food, bar service, from Viking, you will be disappointed at ACL. I noticed a previous review from fall 2023 about mold in the shower and Legionella on ...

Mississippi cruise: Not Exactly Perfect.

Review for a North America River Cruise on American Melody

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

The Missus and I decided some time ago to kick the tires on ACL, in order to compare the line with American Queen Voyages (which unfortunately is no more). We chose the American Melody for a quick round-trip on the Mississippi out of New Orleans. ACL does not pay for incoming airport transfers so we grabbed a cab at the New Orleans airport. They do, however, provide a coach for the return ...

This is an unsolicited letter of commendation. We did the Lower Mississippi cruise from New Orleans to Memphis on March 15th. It was one of the best cruises we have taken. The staff couldn't have been better. They were courteous and helpful. Please extend my thanks to the following. Hanna, the Cruise Director was fantastic. She let us know where to be and when "on the dot". The piano player was ...

A Better Way To Vacation

After cruising for many years with the "big ships", (well over a dozen cruises with Princess, etc.), we've found that ACL is "a breath of fresh air". No crowds fighting for show seats, no reservations for dining, no tipping, no paying for every little drink, including water, no over priced excursions, and on and on. What's not to like? The big production shows were ok, but we've seen better. ...
