Review for American Glory to Canada & New England

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

The New England Islands cruise was fabulous!!!! We visited a number of islands and mainland locations that I had been wanting to see for a long time. Being able to see them on one trip and not having to pack and unpack was perfect. We had plenty of time in each stop to both tour and have some time to look around on our own. The tours were well organized and very informative. The crew, from ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

We talked about a cruise for several years but had no inclination to sail on any huge cruise ship. When National Trust for Historic Preservation advertised their Hudson River Fall Cruise (on American Glory) and noted it began in New York City (we are both of New York origin) we combined the cruise with some days in the city. It was an excellent decision. I don't know the expectations of those ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

American Cruise lines slogan is, 'small ship cruising done perfectly' but should be 'too little for too much'. American Cruise Lines missed the mark in everything they did. The vessel looked old and poorly maintained. You could see rust and corrosion everywhere. The food was of poor quality and poorly prepared. The bar was only open from 5:30 - 6:30 PM during the happy hour where hors d'oeuvres ...

My friends and I (6 of us in all) were looking forward to our cruise up the Maine coast. We are seasoned travelers and have experienced many cruises over the years. We were all very disappointed and felt we paid too much and received too little. The Glory is a very inadequate ship -- old and in need of retrofitting. There were no stabilizers and during the night the water was so rough the ...

This was supposed to be a 50th wedding anniversary gift for myself and my wife. We love the east coast, being from California we don't get to see it very often, and we thought, what better way to explore that area of the country. From the start things went wrong. The information on the website says that American Cruise Lines has modern "brand" new ships. If that's the case, The American Glory ...

The Glory is a wonderful small ship - 50 passengers - and this 10 day itinerary from Providence, RI to Portland, ME has so many beautiful ports. The food was the best we have had in 6 other American Cruise Lines trips and featured shellfish at every meal. The young servers and deck hands can be inexperienced but are cheerful and eager to please. Just be patient - you are on vacation after all! ...

This was an Eagle Society cruise on the rivers of Florida. It was very relaxing with one or two tours a day. There was plenty of extra time to explore the towns where we stopped. We enjoyed talking to the historian who was on board. He had very good knowledge of the area and what we would see. We really liked the service on the ship. The food was very good and we had good choices when we signed up ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We traveled on the Great Rivers of Florida Cruise. We have traveled outside the US previously and wanted to see a bit of this country. We chose this cruise due to the proximity to our home and we were able to drive to the port. We stayed in the Hyatt where the ship was docked. Arriving at the ship we were greeted, our luggage taken to our room and instruction was given to the lounge where we were ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

This was our first time on a small boat and enjoyed the atmosphere and fellow cruisers. Don't feel lost as you do on a large ship holding 1000's of people. Get to meet and interact with the others cruising (American Glory holds 49 passengers and our trip had 29 on board). Small boat cruising also allows you to have more direct contact with the cruise director and other staff and receive more ...

This was a marvelous 10 night cruise from Portland, ME to Providence, RI with six stops in Maine along with days in Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. The 50 passenger American Glory was full, and we all had a great time. A guest lecturer was aboard with us, and evening entertainment was usually imported from shore. This cruise is geared for intelligent adults...children would not be happy. Shore ...
