NEW YEARS 2023 WITH AN OUTSTANDING CREW OF THE AMERICAN MELODY

The beautifully appointed American Melody was a great place to celebrate the beginning of 2023! Decorated for the holidays with tasteful wreaths, a ‘tree of poinsettias” in the lobby, and a decorated tree in the River Lounge. As soon as you boarded the ship you had a visual reminder that this was a holiday-themed cruise. SPECIAL IT WAS! The entire crew was outstanding and the service was ...

First and foremost, the accolades go to the crew of the 2022/23 Holiday Cruise. American Cruise Line must have hand selected their A plus PLUS employees to join together to make this a seamless and enjoyable voyage. Under the leadership of Hotel General Manager Shavar Cubit, this year’s cruise definitely had extra festive elements for its guests – a gingerbread house making session, tasteful ...

After seeing the new “Elvis” movie, I wanted to visit Graceland in Memphis. After seeing photos of the new American Symphony, I wanted to experience a cruise on the beautiful riverboat. So, I combined both of those hopes into one wonderful experience. I cruised from Memphis to New Orleans on the American Symphony in November. I also chose the two-night pre-cruise Elvis Experience in Memphis ...

Fun on the REALLY LOW Lower Mississippi

I was a solo traveler on the American Symphony on the Lower Mississippi. I was expecting some challenges due to the historically low water levels, which is obviously beyond anyone’s control. Fortunately, the crew helped make the best of the unavoidable deviations with helpful attitudes and friendly faces. This went a long way towards making the trip a positive experience. The vessel is new and I ...

4 Hour Bus Ride

Check Before You Book. The Mississippi River is at all time lows. We understand that. A few days before our departure, we received an email saying that we would have to bus from Memphis to Vicksburg. That is a 4 hour ride. The bad thing is, the cruise line never offered to compensate for this. The food left a little to be desired but the dessert chef made up for that. The cruise was touted ...

We sailed Oct 2022. We were looking forward to MSY - MEM. The line can’t control the river. The day before we were supposed to fly to MSY, we were notified they couldn’t sail south of MEM because the river levels were too low so we needed to change our flight reservations to MEM. We were promised a refund for any change fees w/in 4 - 6 weeks. Fortunately, our Tours By Locals day trip and our ...

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 ...

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 ...

My husband and I cruised on American Cruise Line Jazz from Memphis to Nashville in July. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing trip along the Ohio River, Mississippi and Cumberland Rivers. The staff and crew of the Jazz go above and beyond to make your trip seamless and easy. There was a pre-cruise complimentary stay at the upscale Guest House at Graceland. The excursions staff arrived at the ...

Specifically, the crew was an absolute five star cast of good, young people. Kelly Anne, Leilani, Deborah, Anna, Kylie, Marina, Wayne, Skarlet, Racheal, Trinity, Justin and Chris all made our trip enjoyable via their hospitality, smiles and work ethic. The boat itself is a 4.5 out of 5. The rooms were lovely and of a good size and having the balcony was really a nice feature. We took this ...
