Excellent Cruise of Maine

Sail Date: August 2017
Destination: USA
Embarkation: Portland (Maine)
American Cruise Line definitely knows how to service small ship cruising. The service, food, land tours, and overall benefits of small ship cruising are obvious after a few days on board. The selection of lobster every day was excellent. This was our third cruise with American Cruise Line and it was so much better than the large cruise ships that are so impersonal and 'cattle car' typical. Embarkation. disembarkation were designed to make it fast and comfortable. The ship was immaculate, comfortable quarters, excellent food, Shore excursions - usually one per day but sometimes two per day were excellent, varied and not exorbitant in cost but reasonable. Many were free. American Cruise Line definitely know how to treat their passengers, staff, and ships. We will definitely travel with them again and not on the larger (2000+ passengers) since 100 to 200 passengers allows for more interaction with passengers. We hope they will continue their service.
