1st Time ACL Tried Memphis Music, oh dear

Review for American Jazz to North America River

We'd been on ACL once before & knew it was mucho dinero, but wanted to do Memphis-Nashville Music Cruise. This is the 1st yr ACL has attempted this route, & omigosh, the timing needs improvement! The brochure isn't nearly clear enough that you hafta get there EARLY to see the music sites in either town. They offer Graceland pre-cruise ($$$), but no Sun Studio or Memphis Rock & Soul tours, etc. ...

The Absolute Worst Cruise That I Have Ever Taken

Small Ship Cruising Done Poorly Before I get into my review, here are some disclaimers as well as what I am basing my opinions on. The cost of this cruise ranged from $5500+ (U.S.) on up. This is key, as the brochures and other written material, as well as conversations with American Cruise Line staff members purported this to be a luxury/high-end cruise experience. Other factors ...

A Wonderful Surprise!

We had booked a fantastic European river cruise for September, 2021....and then cancelled because of the pandemic and fears of being "stuck" overseas if one of us became ill. So--what to do. The Columbia and Snake Rivers were unknown to us...except what we knew about the explorations of Lewis & Clark. And we would be in the US! The trip was beyond our expectations in every way, starting with the ...

I made a couple of posts on the American Cruise Lines Group before our 8/23 Grand New England Cruise expressing concern over whether it could live up to the fabulous experience we had with Viking on our first cruise two years ago after reading so many brutal reviews on Yelp and Cruise Critic. Well, about everything went wrong on this cruise that could go wrong and we had an absolutely fabulous ...

Frustrating, but Still Pleasant Trip

Grand New England Cruise We just returned from this cruise in August. This was one of the most frustrating cruises we have ever been on. At the same time, it was pleasant because of the places we visited (from Boston to Bar Harbor), the small size of the ship and the lengths that the crew on board went to make lemonade out of lemons. For example, we had 2 special events planned for our ...

Expensive Nightmare at Sea

Beware! This cruise is unsafe, hazardous, a liability, and a tragedy waiting to happen. The facts are that they are grossly understaffed and the crew that is aboard is negligently trained; they are incompetent and uninformed. The staff is not fully vaccinated, although the Manager of the Hotel, has lied and sworn they are, the Captain and Medic aboard has verified otherwise. The majority of the ...

Puget Sound Cruise on the American Spirit

Review for American Spirit to North America River

I selected this cruise because the route sounded interesting and it was all I could find last January. BIG MISTAKE !!! This ship reminded me of something you would find plying the Volga River in about 1975. Outdated and never up dated is the name of the cruise. Ship built in 2005 and not maintained very well. The staff for the most part were kids that had no idea what their job was. The food, if ...

Horrible and dangerous experience

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The ship, while only 3 years old (we were told) has not been maintained; Surface rust on the outside of the ship and more worrisome appearing rust on the support cables for the tender. Stained carpet and upholstery as well. Ship was short staffed and the staff that were provided were poorly trained. Food was bad and rarely served as ordered. Chef staffing deck food bar was ornery and ...

A most unpleasant cruise

Review for Independence to U.S.A.

This cruise ship, Independence of the American Cruise Lines was the worst ship I have ever been on and I have been on quite a few cruises. Our room was very dirty; huge stains on the carpet; furniture that you would not even attempt to sit in; bathroom was also very dirty. Housekeeping was minimal at best. The ship broke down, one generator totally died and the other one was getting close ...

The ship was dated and really not sea worthy. It appeared as a rust bucket upon boarding and it was. The room was old and dated, crappy bed, filthy shower and bathroom area. The crew was all new and was really not trained to run a cruise ship. We were ripped off for 11,000. This was the absolutely worse money grabbing experience we have ever had. TOTAL ROBBERY!!!! The redeeming factor was the ...
