The Missus and I decided some time ago to kick the tires on ACL, in order to compare the line with American Queen Voyages (which unfortunately is no more). We chose the American Melody for a quick round-trip on the Mississippi out of New Orleans.

ACL does not pay for incoming airport transfers so we grabbed a cab at the New Orleans airport. They do, however, provide a coach for the return airport trip as well as a return to ACL's selected hotel (InterContinental) for those sticking around in the Crescent City.

The Intercontinental had a mix of spring breakers and ACL guests. ACL provided a free room on the first night of the cruise, plus free brekky the following morning prior to boarding the coaches for the quick trip to the boat.
