Neither value nor luxury but still a good time

Review for America to North America River

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

My husband, myself, and my sister-in-law (all in our 50s) took this cruise by using a travel credit of my in-laws that was about to expire (and the cruise line made it very clear there were no extensions or any way to get thousands of dollars back). We made it into a good time, but if I were a true paying customer, I would really be scratching my head as to the cost and what you receive--neither a ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Our cruise trip began with a night at the beautiful Historic Davenport hotel in Spokane Oregon. We boarded the American Empress in Lewiston WA. We visited Hells Canyon then Richland, The Dallas, Stevenson, Astoria and disembarked in Vancouver WA. The ship was lovely and food, service and entertainment were good. In each port we found interesting and/or scenic things to see and do - and ...

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 ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Where to begin. Actually at one star it is overrated and grossly overpriced for what was delivered. The ship is an old rust bucket. The saying you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear is a perfect description. Since the cruise up the Hudson is marketed to seniors, American thinks we are too old to use the internet. With that in mind they only provide WiFi if you can position yourself ...

Amazing River Cruise

The Columbia/Snake river on The American Pride was truly amazing. We had an incredible crew that took care of us. The speaker, David Miller not only delivered a great lecture on Lewis and Clark expedition, but enhanced our experience by displaying artifacts and foliage of the region. David gave us information about the many locks we went through. Lots of historical facts. Arts and crafts classes ...

October 19th, 2021 Who we are: All of us were fully vaccinated and followed all guidelines during the cruise. We are seasoned cruisers and have been on both river and ocean cruises in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Why we chose ACL: Like many other travelers we were ready to cruise but wanted to stay in the USA. Wanted to see Washington and Oregon and this sounded ...

My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (23+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our first cruise on American Cruise Lines. The Hudson River Cruise started in New York City on October 9, 2021. This was our first trip out of state in 19 months because of COVID 19. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early so we could visit friends. We took an ...

A Tremendous Disappointment !

Review for American Jazz to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose ACL's Lower Mississippi cruise from Memphis to New Orleans based upon a very good experience on an ACL Columbia and Snake Rivers cruise in 2019. Due to a scheduling glitch, ACL rebooked our cabin and cruise without informing us. Our travel agent was livid, and got us a significant cabin upgrade on a rescheduled cruise on one of ACL's newest ships, the American Jazz. Though the ship is ...

Just returned from an American Cruise Line trip on board their ship Constitution. The Hudson River cruise was round trip starting in Manhattan, NY to Albany, NY and return. This was my 5th cruise with ACL. The Constitution is one of ACL's newer vessels built in 2018. It's a beauty! The accommodations were top notch. The public spaces were bright and cheery. On board activities were plentiful and ...

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 ...
