All of our past cruises on ACL have been excellent, but this one did not quite live up to our expectations. Herewith what did not go right (much did go right -- see "On the Positive Side" below):

Our Big Delay

Our Inland Passage cruise on the American Star began as planned in Baltimore, MD. But after a day at our first port in Yorktown, VA, Captain O'Connor announced that a critical engine part had failed, and we would have to remain there a couple more days while a replacement was shipped to us and installed. This ultimately cost us stops in Norfolk, VA, Coinjock, NC, and Wilmington, NC.
