Why Choose American Spirit?

American Spirit for Families

Editor Rating
Families
2.0

With the average age of the passengers quite high, there are no facilities or staff set aside for children. An occasional family or grandchild helps to bring that average down slightly on the summer New England and Maine sailings. Older, mature children that don't need to be constantly attended, and like trips to their grandparent's house, could get by on a week's cruise.

A third person with cots can be accommodated in the cabins, although this isn't advertised in the brochure.
