I choose this back-to-back cruise as it was visiting a lot of ports in the US and Canada I never been to before as well as the fall foliage. Note: After disembarkation in Portland (Boston) the ship head to Jacksonville, FL, to be sold as American Queen Voyages was no longer supporting cruise around the great lakes.

The decor of the ship was outstanding. It takes a passenger back to the days when yachts where out fitted with wood paneling throughout. Single seating dining. Salon type of bar.

The upside: First off, the crew on this 21-day cruise went out of their way to make the service portion of the cruise very memorable. They were always smiling, conversations were always fun, and they went out of their way to make a issue prone cruise and fun cruise (if that makes sense). The cruise had extreme weather issues due to the time of year the cruise was going through the great lakes causing missing ports, getting to ports late and at one time having to disembark the major of passengers a day early leaving on the passengers booked on the back-to-back onboard (there were 8); it was like having our own yacht for 2.5 days.

Response from BriannaH, Guest Relations @American Queen Voyages

Thank you for your feedback! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the service onboard and that our Crew made it memorable. However, we are disappointed to hear about the other issues,...

Cabin Review

The cabin was small but very comfortable. The bathroom was on the small side and the shower was extremely small. Since part of the cruise through the great lake was during bad weather, they the captain order the portholes on deck 1 block with steel plates for safety reason. The cabin did not have a seating area. However, the cabin is what I expected for an older ship.
