Forever A Wonderful Memory

This was the top choice for relaxing, informative and easy life traveling. The food was the best ever and the atmosphere was exceptional. The crew was forever cleaning. Spotless!! This ship was the most helpful to everyone including the handicapped passengers. We loved the tour experiences. There was so much to learn about our country. All in all, our experience was an A+++ for ...

Review for American Empress to North America River

This cruise goes from Clarkston to Portland. The first excursion we took was the JetBoat Tour of Hell’s Canyon. I have never seen anything like the terrain. We saw BigHorn Sheep, Deer, Turkeys, and a bald Eagle. The river is clear and beautiful. This cruise was wine themed so we had wine tastings onboard and two dinners with wine pairings. We also did the Red Mountain Vines to Wine ...

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 ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

To start with, I tried to find Minneapolis or Red Wing as the embarkation port but was unable to find it in the drop down and it wouldn't let me enter either cities. 1. We only got travel documents after our travel agent called them days before the cruise. I guess this should have been an omen. 2. The cabin had a large patio but was mostly usuable due to their being no shade from noon to ...

Small ship river comfort

Review for Pearl Mist to North America River

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

For our first trip into unknown territory after Covid, we decided on a smaller river ship down the St. Lawrence Seaway. The PearlMist was the perfect size, about 100 rooms--every one of them with a balcony--and laid-back. We're not into a Las Vegas sized and style cruise. We much prefer a passenger experience that was manageable and comfortable. Pearl Mist provided it. The good things about ...

Rolling On The River

Review for American Queen to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I have always wanted to cruise on the US rivers, and I also wanted to experience the largest riverboat, as well as steam-powered, so the American Queen was my obvious choice. Eventually, I hope to cover all the US rivers that offer overnight cruises. We flew in to St. Louis, and were lodged at the Hilton at the Ballpark, where we checked in, and completed a Covid test. We toured St. Louis ...

Authentic paddlewheel ship with a bright new interior

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Amateur Hour on Not a Luxury cruise

Review for Pearl Mist to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The embarkation for this cruise was Milwaukee, WI, but that choice is not available on this form. The reverse trip is Toronto to Milwaukee. We took the cruise that ended in Toronto. The cruise is advertised as a Great Lakes tour. This cruise is nothing like described in the brochure. Embarkation was chaotic, mostly because the staff didn't know what to do. The staff included everyone from ...
