This was our 3rd cruise with American Cruise Lines and we have booked our 4th. doing the upper Mississippi. Have never dealt with a company that is so completely customer oriented. All cruise people have your best interests at heart "ALL" the time. They do anything possible to have you enjoy the experience. Would and do recommend to anyone. Ship and crew were great. Capton friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding. Being from Maryland we pride ourselves with crab cakes. Had the best crab cake ever on the boat. All plated meals and much more then we could eat. Requested 1/2 portions. Extra snacks available 24 hours, and popcorn and ice cream sundaes served during entertainment if you have any room. Shore tours very interesting and well conducted. Our cabin was plenty large enough including the king bed. Always kept clean and the bed turned down for you in the evening. Plenty of room for a card game or dominos in the evening. Do yourself a favor and try American Cruise Lines.

Great Cruise, Great People

Plenty of space with a king size bed. Very good bath size. Always kept clean and refreshed by the great housekeeping people.
