American Cruise Lines does know how to do it right. From top to bottom every officer and crew is friendly, the food is never ending and great. Included is a happy hour each night staffed by generous bartenders. Cindy was our housekeeper, each day, while we were at breakfast, she would get our room straight and clean. Stevie and Don, our main entertainment did everything from the 50's to the 80's, country, rock, etc. and light jazz for happy hour. Probably the best part of the trip was retired Air Force Colonel Michelle (aka Mo); she is so knowledgeable, witty and funny, the lessons and stories made the trip.
This is our 3rd ACL cruise. We did enjoy it very much. I would however caution that because the Ohio River is 981 miles long with 21 locks and another 200 or so miles on the Mississippi some of the port calls are too short. So, just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery. If you want full or nearly full days at the port stops this cruise might not be for you.
