Cruising the Snake and Columbia Rivers following Lewis and Clark

June 2022 - My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (25+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our second river cruise on American Cruise Lines. Our Columbia and Snake Rivers cruise started on June 9 in Clarkston, Washington. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early, June 6, so we could enjoy the Lewiston, ID and Clarkston, WA areas. We stayed ...

Review: American Cruise Lines, American Song, June 5 through June 12, 2022 Our experience on American Cruise Line’s ship the American Song was a wonderful experience. It was both relaxing, enjoyable, and fun to be pampered. The scenery of mountains, as well as seeing the Columbia and Snake Rivers was beautiful and at times breath-taking. We enjoyed waking up to sit out on our deck each morning ...

We hadn’t seen much of the northwest US so we decided to try the American Cruise Line Harmony's cruise from Portland, Oregon to Clarkston, Washington on the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The ship is small and only had 150 passengers on our trip. We were in Room 308, a comfortable two room suite with a small balcony. I think it was next to the captain's cabin and the bridge was just beyond that. ...

Cruising on American waterways has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Taking a 10 day cruise along the Columbia and Snake Rivers didn’t disappoint. Cruising past lush forests, cascading waterfalls and quaint towns while sitting on your balcony was amazing. Accommodations were spacious with ample amenities and storage. Escorted excursions allowed me to discover the rich heritage and ...

Short Staffed

Review for American Queen to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

We wanted a cruise close to our home in North Carolina and the Great Rivers of Florida on American Cruise Line fit the bill. We cruised the St Johns, ICW and went to Amelia Island and down to St Augustine. While the American Star is one of ACL older ships it was in grand condition. The crew was one of the best we have encountered. Dining was a great experience, Happy Hour was special and gave us ...

Our cruise trip began with a night at the beautiful Historic Davenport hotel in Spokane Oregon. We boarded the American Empress in Lewiston WA. We visited Hells Canyon then Richland, The Dallas, Stevenson, Astoria and disembarked in Vancouver WA. The ship was lovely and food, service and entertainment were good. In each port we found interesting and/or scenic things to see and do - and ...

Not as described

In midst of wave of new Covid cases, safety is not a big concern. They spray the luggage, but mask enforcement is minimal if at all. It has been shown that contacting Covid from surfaces is at the bottom of the list. No social distancing in any venue. Supposedly they follow state law when docked and on land, but not when moving on water. If you need mask protection when at the dock, you ...

Cruise from HELL

Review for American Independence (formerly Independence) to North America River

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Where to begin. Actually at one star it is overrated and grossly overpriced for what was delivered. The ship is an old rust bucket. The saying you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear is a perfect description. Since the cruise up the Hudson is marketed to seniors, American thinks we are too old to use the internet. With that in mind they only provide WiFi if you can position yourself ...

Amazing River Cruise

Review for American Pride to North America River

The Columbia/Snake river on The American Pride was truly amazing. We had an incredible crew that took care of us. The speaker, David Miller not only delivered a great lecture on Lewis and Clark expedition, but enhanced our experience by displaying artifacts and foliage of the region. David gave us information about the many locks we went through. Lots of historical facts. Arts and crafts classes ...
