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 ...

Alaska - amazing! American Cruise Lines - disappointing!

Eager to travel after the restrictions of the past year and a half, we chose this small ship Alaskan cruise. We had visited Alaska four times before, always on large cruise ships. We had taken one other ACL trip - Lewis & Clark, the Columbia and Snake Rivers. There were some "issues" on that trip - ACL seems to suffer communication deficiencies, but we were willing to try them again. I ...

WE CHOSE AMERICAN, BECAUSE THE LARGE CRUISE SHIPS WEREN'T SAILING. The food was outstanding! No buffets, all plate service at your table. We enjoyed that! Smaller ship meant less passengers, maybe 150 on our cruise. Easy off and on the ship. All alcohol was included in the price. It may cost more on a smaller ship but to us, it was well worth the attention we received from the crew!! All ...

The trip was a disaster. We sailed out on July 4th—four people tested positive on the fourth full day. The trip was canceled.

I wanted to escape the heat and stay in the USA. I thought it would be safer. This is a crummy, cheap company and they get away with it because their repeat clientele knows no better. They say they have wi-fi. Don’t believe it. Not enough bandwidth to download anything. No decent films. They have DVDs that are antiques and I had no player. When people contracted COVID, they took too long to tell ...

American cruise lines is dishonest. Oh my companion and I were on the cruise that was cut short bye covid 19. There were many problems on the cruise that were creating disappointment I had discussed among the passengers before the cruise was abruptly cut short by an announcement that four members of the crew had tested positive for COVID-19. How we were treated from that moment on until we were ...

Chef was new onboard and not up to par with our previous experience with American Cruiselines. The wait staff worked double hard being short staffed. The Assistant Guest Services person, Andy, went above and beyond to take care of the passengers. The Cruise Director Tiara and Excursion Director Kinzie weren't as helpful as we've had in the past. Meagan with Guest Services was excellent - the most ...

After a long hiatus, we were excited to embark on a short cruise around Puget Sound area. My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our cruise. The cruise director Patti, her assistant and excursions director Amelia, and their team took great care of us during our 7 day cruise. We even spotted whales as we were sailing. Amy Traxler, the naturalist was onboard giving us narrations about the ...

Loved our cruise to the San Juan Islands with American Cruise lines. The staff was friendly, very young and tried to please. Our onboard naturalist was a big plus. A lot of onboard activities to keep us busy. The food was plentiful and good. The excursions were well planned. I thought the concurrent “Happy Hour” and dinner was a bit strange. Enjoyed both, though. Sometimes you’d joking others who ...

The Grand Puget Sound Cruise on American Cruise line was our 40th cruise on a variety of cruise lines with ship ranging in sizes from 120 passenger to 5,000+ passengers. We chose the cruise because we wanted to try one in the northwest. The web-site and brochure depicts "Simple Sophistication" and a "culinary experience". Unfortunately it was not our experience. From the minute we arrived to the ...

My husband hates to travel and hates crowds. Having been on a large cruise with thousands of passengers and lots of "extras" tacked onto the original price of the cruise I wanted something different for our cruise together. American Cruiselines provides a different experience. We sailed with several individuals who have sailed with American Cruiselines repeatedly. The population on the cruise ...
