This was our first cruise with ACL. We found the crew to be very enthusiastic and friendly. The cruise was to the ports in Maine (think pub craw of ports). It was nice to get into ports that the "Big Ships" can't reach. The cabin was very clean a spacious. Meals were excellent. The cruise would not be suitable to children because there are not activities for them. The average age would probably be 60 -65. Would recommend this to anyone who like American Made. That is from the ship to the crew. The entertainment was a little dated and would have like a little more choice in shore excursions.

Would not choose this cabin again. At back of boat near engine.
