This was our 5th trip with American Cruise Lines and we enjoyed it very much.
We are happy that these are American owned and built ships and that they are staffed by American officers and crew. The young servers and deck hands are polite and cheerful college kids for the most part.
The itinerary was one that took us to small yacht harbors, avoiding big mega ship ports, and their crowds. It is much like a cruise on a large private yacht.
