PRE-CRUISE -- This bucket list cruise was from Red Wing Minnesota to New Orleans, the entire Mississippi River. There was an included pre-cruise Hotel night at the St. Paul Hotel. The hotel was great! However, we were responsible for our own airline tickets and our transfer from the airport to the hotel. We each then had a Covid swab test prior to boarding the next day. The hotel concierge was ...

Enjoyed the Upper Mississippi River cruise. We were looking for an opportunity to get back to vacationing and enjoying the sights of new surroundings. This cruise did that for us. The crew was well versed in their duties. Dining was a joy as I like trying new foods and wines. Seating for the dining room was open and the second day we found a waiter we really liked and tried to get one of his ...

A Mississippi paddlewheeler cruise has been on my bucket list for years, and this was the perfect time to go. The ship, American Cruise Lines America, is perfect in size, layout, crew, food and entertainers. Our cabin was spacious, light and comfortable, on Deck 2, which I found to be the perfect location, close enough to lounges, but also in a quiet spot. Every meal was delicious, with choices ...

The Boat was dirty, bug infested, food was fair, service was terrible, speaker was clueless to anything about our destinations. Time in port was very short, if you got on 2nd bus for a tour, you missed out on most of the tour do to lack of time. Entertainment started out pretty good, by the end of trip it is not so good. People were nice, however, they were always apologizing for lack of ...

We so enjoyed our “Civil War” cruise on the Duchess that we booked this trip “In the Footsteps of Mark Twain”. Two days before departure we were told due to the high waters the trip was changed -every port was different except the starting point of St Louis. The Queen is much larger and the room we had chosen #502 was in the front of the ship-nice & roomy but so noisy we could not stay. The ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I wanted to travel to upper Mississippi to 4 states I had not visited. The cruise was promoted as Fall Foliage on the Upper Mississippi. My group had been planning for this trip for over a year. The route was changed due to flooding, and we were officially notified AFTER the boat left St Louis port. Management knew the situation and could have notified us before we flew from NC to St Louis the ...

Wanted to do a river cruise, but didn't want to fly to Europe. Shopped for itineraries, and decided on the Mississippi. Shopped Cruise lines and decided on American Cruise Line. It was a really good package, including a pre-cruise hotel in St. Louis, all-inclusive cocktails and wine, highly rated cuisine, relatively new river boat, and an itinerary that sounded interesting. All-in-all, it ...

An American Dream come true on American Queen

This was probably the best cruise experience my wife and I ever had in over 16 years of cruising on a variety of cruise lines. The all-American crew provided first class service and did put some meaning to the idea of joining the AQSC family. American Queen was a true elegant Southern Belle affording us an experience closeted in sophisticated Southern Charm with true superior service. The ...

This was my second cruise with American Cruise Lines. I was a solo female traveler. I gave myself two days in downtown Pittsburgh and enjoyed myself very much. I stayed at the same hotel as the cruise line's designated night-before stay and appreciated that the hotel transition was smoothly done (Hampton Inn Downtown). We hit a snag the first day; we had to be bused down to Marietta, Ohio (three ...
