It was a scene out of Downton Abbey when the titled owners arrived home after a long absence; all the American Cruise Lines crew and staff were lined up to welcome us on board the American Spirit. Though there was one major difference between the AC staff and the Downton Abbey staff, all the AC personnel were smiling. The employees of AC were extremely happy and pleasant people to be around, ...

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 ...

We have visited Seattle and Vancouver, and have been told that the San Juan Islands are perfection in green and blue, plus we have cruised with American Cruise Lines (ACL) before and wanted to do so again. So we did, and were delighted with the Cruise! This is a case where the Cruise Line, the ship, and the ports are perfectly marched. The ship held 90 compatible passengers, most ports were ...

We had a great experience with American Cruise Lines on our trip to Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. Their staff went out of their way to make sure that we really enjoyed ourselves. The excursions were informative and fun (especially Hurricane Ridge - Olympic National Park, the Seattle city tour and Victoria, BC)! A special shout out to the cruise line staff - director, wait staff and ...

We choose this cruise for the weather. We live in the high desert and cooler temps were beckening for this time of the year. We enjoyed the mid 70's to low 80's during the day and 50's at night. We might have choose this cruise for the weather but was very impressed with American Cruise Lines. The ship was small and about 80 people onboard which made for getting to know others onboard enjoyable. ...

This past April I once again had the pleasure of sailing with The American Cruise Lines--this time on the American Spirit touring the Puget Sound & San Juan Islands. While on past cruises with ACL I frequently heard other passengers remarking how they loved this particular cruise so when I had the opportunity to go--I grabbed it! And I was not disappointed. From beautiful scenery to fabulous ...

This was my 5th cruise with American Cruise Lines. We cruised through Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands on this trip. We were supposed to go October of 2020, but that cruise was cancelled. So the first thing to know is that I have enjoyed every single cruise I have been on with this company. They must treat their employees well because they seem to be a happy bunch. I love the educational ...

My husband and I had a wonderful time cruising the Sound and visiting the San Juan Islands with American Cruise Lines. While there was always whale watching during the cruise itself, nevertheless there was a special outing to view these wonderful creatures. Additionally, other excursions of special note were the visit to the animal farm (a must see!) and the tour to Lake Crescent Lodge which ...

My husband and I -- both frequent travelers with American Cruises Lines -- had a wonderful time cruising the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands. Since we are from the East Coast, these two weeks gave us the opportunity to visit a part of the country with which we were unfamiliar. And, because of the length of the journey, we got a chance to participate in lots of wonderful excursions. Getting a ...

We chose this cruise because the itinerary looked interesting, the Covid-19 protocols seemed safe, and the other reviews of the cruise line looked promising. Big mistake. Huge. The positives: interior crew was amazing! Such great attitudes and service by the stewardesses and dining staff. They were friendly, helpful, fun, and funny. The negatives: everything else. Our itinerary got ...
