Sail Date: May 2019

Our 44th cruise was with a river boat company, American Cruise Lines, but it was not on a river. We sailed around Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands, aboard the American Constellation for 10 nights and 11 days. It is a very nice boat, quite new and offering a good range of river boat amenities, a hardworking and a very pleasant crew. But we felt it was overpriced, and had some weak points.


We boarded shortly before noon at a marina in Seattle, and the check-in was very fast. We were handed names tags on a ribbon and encouraged to wear them all the time. We were given the usual room key, but were not asked to provide a credit card imprint – a first in our experience. The Captain was there to greet us; and helped with the luggage. We had a snack in the main “Cascade” Lounge on deck three and then went to our cabin.

Cabin Review

Cabin Vernadah

Excellent cabin. very roomy for a "river boat" with plenty of drawer space, and a small but adequate closet. Adequate bathroom like most cruise ships. Good sized verandah with sliding glass door. Two arm chairs and a desk with its chair. Almost all the cabins on this boat are the same.
