Worst cruise ever

Review for American Star to U.S.A.

This was my first time on American Cruise Lines. We wanted to see some of New England. We flew into Providence, RI and stayed at the cruise line recommended Hotel. The hotel was overpriced and not helpful about what to do in Providence. The cruise line had a welcome package, but no information about Providence. We missed a great Italian restaurant area that we did not find out about until the next ...

I live in Florida so cool weather options are always great in summer. I had been to the area before and loved it, so this cruise was a great way to see the San Juan Islands. I have cruised on American CruiseLine several times before and love the intimacy of a small ship. There were less than 100 passengers. Every one of the stops were fabulous. Friday Harbor, Paulsbo and Port Angeles were my ...

I've been on several American Cruise Line cruises and each one is better than the last. I just love these cruises. When I checked into the room it was bright and spotlessly clean. The staterooms are so much bigger than on an ocean cruise. This ship was all balconies, so I was able to sit outside on my balcony. The best part of the cruises is always the crew. Everyone onboard is willing to do ...

The Worst River Cruise Ever.

Embarkation: Was Clarkston, but it was not listed, so noted above is the disembarkation. Cruise ship: unclean and unfortunately COVID ridden. Got most of us sick and they failed to advise us that there was a break-out. The rumor was that they only notified those folks in close proximity of those that were sick. Really, we ALL shared the same limited space! They never sanitized. Even more ...

We picked this cruise because we'd never been to the New England Islands. The brochure said Providence to Providence. But the dock in Providence was damaged last year and American Cruise Lines is using a very unattractive dock in an industrial area of Fall River. A 40 minute bus ride away. That was just the beginning of problems. We embarked on a Saturday. Our bathroom fan screeched. It ...

We’ve always wanted to cruise along the Mississippi River, and we’re glad we did it with American Cruise Line. It was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise experience. We had a terrific guest speaker, Bobby Durham, who not only gave port talks, but also entertained us with his banjo. Piano players Greg on the first 7 days and Jeff on the second 7 days were very talented and kept us tapping our toes ...

We have traveled extensively overseas and felt it was time to "See more of America" than offered by freeway travel and resorts. American Cruise Line's river trips are designed to take you to the heartland, and provide an opportunity to see, taste, and hear a part of America that most of us never experience. Their combination of lectures, entertainment, and shore excursions provide that ...

This cruise was interesting, yet in many ways disappointing. Great itinerary that included Gloucester, Hyannis, Martha's Vineyard, New Bedford, Newport, and Provincetown. Of the 175 passengers most were from East Coast and MidWest with the majority being older seniors. Our first disappointment, the bus picking us up from Four Seasons Hotel was 1 1/2 hrs late for the pre-cruise excursion ...

We had never been on a river cruise or to the Pacific Northwest before. We had been on 2 or 3 ocean cruises before and wanted to compare with a river cruise. The American Song was very modern and nice with a variety of both large and small lounges. The dining room was large and clean. The staff and personnel were very friendly and efficient. We had a vivacious cruise director (Olivia) and ...
