PERFECT 'BUCKET LIST' CRUISE FOR OUR FATHER

Review for American Heritage (formerly Queen of the Mississippi) to U.S.A.

My father-in-law had heard our "river stories" as we came home from other American Cruise Line vacations. (We are ALL IN for small ship cruising!) At the last minute, two weeks before the proposed sailing, we asked him if he wanted to come for his 96th (he is a medical marvel!) birthday. He 'fretted' about whether he would be able to handle the tours and the airport travel. 4 days before we ...

Having very little knowledge of the South and never having been on a river cruise, I fell for the slick promos American Cruise lines produced, where. Five star cruise was promised . Ha! The suite was nice (new ship) but the food was mundane at best , inedible at times and often not what was described on the menu.. I compare the caviar , lobster and filet on Sea Dream to the meatloaf , raw ...

I have emailed, left a note on the website, spoken to escalated customer service rep and requested a call from Mr Waggoner to discuss the MAJOR problems on the cruise. Staff on board were wonderful but woefully understaffed. Dining room normally has 16 servers-only six! Food ALWAYS cold-soups always tepid at best. One stop (can’t call it a port) not planned, had NO services! We needed ...

We had talked about a Mississippi River cruise for years, and finally decided to do it. The cruise lived up to our expectations and then some! The pre-cruise process was a little confusing and disorganized, but we appreciated the Covid testing, knowing everyone onboard had tested negative. The Peabody may be a grand old hotel, but the rooms are small and the bathrooms even smaller. We were ...

First time trying a Mississippi River cruise after taking over 12 ocean cruises. The itinerary of Memphis to New Orleans was my main reason for choosing this cruise. Flying into Memphis the cruise included an overnight stay at The Peabody Hotel. Took taxi to airport, cost of $39.50 plus tip seemed high but efficient. The Peabody is a grand lady and was glad to stay there but my room extremely ...

American Melody Exceeded Expectations

We’ve always wanted to cruise on the Mississippi, and decided to take the plunge this spring. We chose American Melody because we had been on her sister ship, Harmony, last year in the Colombia / Snake River cruise and we loved the size and layout of the ship and the ample cabins. Melody did not disappoint, and neither did the Mississippi. My favorite part of the trip was the onboard ...

In March 2022 My husband and I took a wonderful Cruise on American CruiseLine. The trip was on the American Heritage, and we traveled down the Mississippi River from Memphis to New Orleans. We began our trip exploring on our own. I wish I had taken the precruise option. Many people I met did and had an awesome experience. We visited a few places on our own. We went to Sun Studios, and Beale ...

Anticipating New Year's 2022 I didn't want to be the hostess of yet another New Year's Eve party with overnight guests at our house. This year, I WANTED TO BE SERVED AND ENTERTAINED!!!! What a wonderful decision it was to book a trip on the Lower Mississippi, aboard the beautiful new ship American Melody, and CRUISE IN STYLE into the New Year! It was comforting to know that ALL guests were ...

I am a musician so while others seek history on these cruises I have a special affinity for the music of the Lower Mississippi region. We choose the Melody because it is American Cruise Line's newest ship that just took to the river in August of this year! The food was great an there was plenty of it! The staff did everything in their power to see to everyone's needs. The crew is ...

So many previous passengers had recommended American Cruise Line ships that I had to see for myself. River cruising has always been one of my favorite vacations. ACL topped them all . The dining was superb serving the most thought- through meals every day morning, noon and night. The waiters were so attentive and informative about everything being served. The dining room as well as the ...
