American Constellation Cruise Review by sq1430
- Sail Date: May 2017
- Destination: USA
The ship had personnel out by the curb to handle our luggage and put it in our rooms. As we signed in, we were given name tags and a card for keyless room entry. It was also used for leaving and returning to the ship. Our room was very spacious. We loved the balcony with its medium sized table and two comfortable chairs. It was deep enough to get around on. The bathroom has aa shower with a closing door and plenty of grab bars. This is especially important if the seas get a bit rough. However, this ship seemed very stable in our five foot waves one day.
Our meals were very good. We always had several choices. We could get half orders, change veggies, order something off the menu as long as we told them ahead of time. They also ask about any dietary restrictions. I ate too many desserts as they all sounded so good!
Harold Cones, our lecturer, historian, was very well informed about the region, its shellfish, and anything else that you wanted to know about the area. He gave several talks that we could attend or listen to and watch in our staterooms. He went on our shore excursions with us so that he could answer any questions. There were several options for shore trips at each port. We signed up at the beginning of the cruise, but could change our plans if necessary. The trolley tour of Annapolis and guided tour of the Naval Academy was one of the highlights of our trip. We had docked out, so we took the launch over to the town. It was handled very well.
I liked having two washers and dryers on board for our use. The ship provided the detergent and dryer sheets.
Debarkation was well handled. We received tags for our luggage the day before and put our bags outside our rooms before we went to bed. By morning, all of the luggage was grouped outside ready to go with us to our destination.
We enjoy ACL because it is small ship cruising at its best!
