Neither value nor luxury but still a good time

My husband, myself, and my sister-in-law (all in our 50s) took this cruise by using a travel credit of my in-laws that was about to expire (and the cruise line made it very clear there were no extensions or any way to get thousands of dollars back). We made it into a good time, but if I were a true paying customer, I would really be scratching my head as to the cost and what you receive--neither a ...

PRE-CRUISE -- This bucket list cruise was from Red Wing Minnesota to New Orleans, the entire Mississippi River. There was an included pre-cruise Hotel night at the St. Paul Hotel. The hotel was great! However, we were responsible for our own airline tickets and our transfer from the airport to the hotel. We each then had a Covid swab test prior to boarding the next day. The hotel concierge was ...

This is my 3rd cruise with American cruise line. It was absolutely wonderful. It actually was out of Minneapolis area, but that isn't on the Cruise Critic site. The food was fantastic. They had sugar free desserts at both lunch and dinner, which is perfect for me. The last night featured a surf and turf with lobster and filet- it was delicious. Every crew member on the boat was genuinely ...

We did the lower Mississippi cruise in 2019, and loved it. We departed St Paul MN, bound for St Louis. The scenery was beautiful. The river towns were lovely, and most shore excursions were good also. However, from day one, housekeeping was poor. Towels were not replaced, housekeeping never answered their phone, and we were unable to leave a message. The room was clean, and we had all the ...

To see the upper Mississippi River, The scenery was wonderful, the ship and crew tremendous. We traveled through numerous canal locks which drew many families to witness our passing through. One stop even had a band to welcome the return of "steam ships" to the Upper Mississippi. Menu and food choices were good. Happy hour was special with good food and drinks. Entertainment was also good during ...

LOVED THIS RIVER CRUISE!!! Every meal was outstanding and the staff was incredibly attentive! We met so many new friends with the ability to sit with new people whenever you wanted. We loved the plantation tours and the USS Kidd in Baton Rouge. We already came home and watched Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte that was filmed in Houmas House and plan on watching Tom Hanks in Greyhound that was filmed ...

Desperate to get away after being locked down, we chose the Lower Mississippi cruise from NOLA and return. We drove and arrived a day early to spend additional time in the Big Easy. I contacted ACL to find out where the garage was at the dock so I could park my car a day early and no one I spoke with could tell me. After several frustrating phone calls, I went to the dock and was able to find ...

Really enjoyed my cruise on the Mississippi. Staff really took wonderful care of us. Food was very good and even included surf and turf on the final night. Price included excursions which were very interesting. Had the opportunity to learn more about the civil war, visit an outstanding museum and see several very interesting plantations. All tour guides were well prepared. Back on the ship we had ...

I have went on 5 cruises with American cruise line. I love cruising with them. They do everything to make your cruise fun & enjoyable. The crew on the America were the best. The crew from cruise director to deck hand are friendly & helpful. Their work is hard & they do a great job. ACL went up & beyond in making their ships safe. The food is 5 star. Never had a bad meal. I would recommend ...
