Short Staffed

Review for American Queen to North America River

For the first 4 days they were so short staffed that it was buffet only! So sick of eating lukewarm food and mass produced! Then they brought on enough workers to have service, at dinner only! Also all their other boats are fully staffed, heard that from a inside source. One bartender per bar, when they were open, should have had at least two, long lines. Wine offered? Maybe 8 types, and I can ...

Neither value nor luxury but still a good time

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 ...

A Tremendous Disappointment !

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 ...

Beautiful, but a few problems

We did the lower Mississippi cruise in 2019, and loved it. We departed St Paul MN, bound for St Louis. The scenery was beautiful. The river towns were lovely, and most shore excursions were good also. However, from day one, housekeeping was poor. Towels were not replaced, housekeeping never answered their phone, and we were unable to leave a message. The room was clean, and we had all the ...

Poorly organized Snooze fest

This was a much anticipated get away since Covid had shut us down for previous travel. This cruise was VERY pricey, and unfortunately we didn’t receive anywhere near our value. To start with there are NO amenities on the ship, no pool, no shops, no incidental shops, nothing. You can only have a cocktail from 5:30pm-7pm and only beer/wine/or a basic drink. No specialty drinks, no blender ...

I’ve been on over 50 cruises, some as long as 80 nights. I have been all over coastal USA, and ports in the Caribbean, Asia, Mediterranean, South America, Polynesian Islands, and Australia. With Covid closing down the cruise industry I switched to river cruises on American Cruise Lines. I couldn’t be happier with the results. All cruisers have on their bucket lists ports and countries to ...

Disappointing River Cruise

My husband and I and 2 traveling companions planned the 8-day Mississippi river cruise trip with #AmericanCruiseLines out of New Orleans in early April for sail in August. We chose American Melody boat because there were very few passengers (approximately 100), their strict covid19 operations, and it was a little closer to home than traveling abroad (we’re from the west coast). The trip cost us ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The ship is beautiful! Our room with private balcony was worth it. The food was plentiful and mostly good. The crew was mostly helpful. A few never smiled. (Bad contract maybe?) The Riverlorian was one of the best in the nation. Learned a lot. Entertainment on the stage was over the top. Weather was perfect! Room was well taken care of. Off ship Hop On Hop Off was good. Those are all the good ...

AQSC Puts the "Cuss" back in Customer Service

Beautiful scenery, great entertainment, fair excursions, rude & inept customer service, and the most grossly mis-managed food service operation I’ve seen in my entire life. AQSC puts the “cuss” back in customer service. This was our 10th cruise (river and ocean) and by far the absolute “bottom of the barrel”. Here are my observations (from best to worst) and what you can expect from an AQSC ...

Mississippi River round trip

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I have always wanted to go on an adventure on the Mississippi River. Maybe from reading the Mark Twain books or just to know what it was like. The best part of any voyage is to enjoy the journey. The America is a six deck fully equipped ship with a restaurant on deck one that will seat all the guests aboard, we had a great chef that would creat delicious meals. My stateroom was on the second deck ...
