Review for Viking Mississippi to North America River

Viking and river cruising go together like cookies and milk so when Viking announced in 2017 that they were planning to cruise the Mississippi we were sold and booked as soon as it was available. We had no plans to be on the inaugural cruise but due to construction delays the honor was bestowed upon us. This made the cruise a little extra, both extra fun and a little extra frustrating. First ...

I've been on several American Cruise Line cruises and each one is better than the last. I just love these cruises. When I checked into the room it was bright and spotlessly clean. The staterooms are so much bigger than on an ocean cruise. This ship was all balconies, so I was able to sit outside on my balcony. The best part of the cruises is always the crew. Everyone onboard is willing to do ...

The Worst River Cruise Ever.

Embarkation: Was Clarkston, but it was not listed, so noted above is the disembarkation. Cruise ship: unclean and unfortunately COVID ridden. Got most of us sick and they failed to advise us that there was a break-out. The rumor was that they only notified those folks in close proximity of those that were sick. Really, we ALL shared the same limited space! They never sanitized. Even more ...

We’ve always wanted to cruise along the Mississippi River, and we’re glad we did it with American Cruise Line. It was an enjoyable and relaxing cruise experience. We had a terrific guest speaker, Bobby Durham, who not only gave port talks, but also entertained us with his banjo. Piano players Greg on the first 7 days and Jeff on the second 7 days were very talented and kept us tapping our toes ...

We have traveled extensively overseas and felt it was time to "See more of America" than offered by freeway travel and resorts. American Cruise Line's river trips are designed to take you to the heartland, and provide an opportunity to see, taste, and hear a part of America that most of us never experience. Their combination of lectures, entertainment, and shore excursions provide that ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had never been on a river cruise or to the Pacific Northwest before. We had been on 2 or 3 ocean cruises before and wanted to compare with a river cruise. The American Song was very modern and nice with a variety of both large and small lounges. The dining room was large and clean. The staff and personnel were very friendly and efficient. We had a vivacious cruise director (Olivia) and ...

We chose this cruise because we didn't want an ocean trip. Yes, it was spendy but a lot comes with the package. Round trip airfare :) night at the Grand Ole Opry. Admission prepaid by the ship to shore excursion. The bus drivers were very professional and friendly. The room service was well appreciated. The food was good with a variety of varied selection. And formal dining or casual back ...

I'd never had a chance to see the heartland of the U.S., so this was the perfect getaway. The two weeks on the Upper Mississippi gave me an appreciation of the beauty of this part of the country...and the incredible Mississippi. Having sailed with American Cruise Lines before, I knew to expect wonderful service from the staff, tasty offerings from the chef, and meaningful excursions including ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was our second river cruise on American Cruise lines, but we had sailed many times before on large cruise ships to the Caribbean and Alaska. None of those ocean cruises could be considered even a close second to this last cruise on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. This ship has a capacity of 150 passengers; so much nicer than dealing with thousands of passengers. Disembarking and returning ...
