Our friends recommended American Cruise Lines to us, and this is our 6th cruise with ACL and now have sailed on their older small boats as well as the larger more luxurious boats.
We spent the night at the Hyatt Regency for a relaxing overnight stay prior to boarding the Star which was anchored immediately in-front of the Hotel. Boarding (as always with ACL) was easy, with lots of help and little inconvenience.
Our first day was spent eating (excellent and includes free drinks) a fun on board orientation, our first watercolor class by the onboard Artist, and our first lecture about the St. John's and the next day's activities. We were entertained that night, and every night by professional musicians from Jacksonville and the communities we visited.
Large, with ample storage. Good wi-fi, a big selection of TV channels, and well kept.
