San Juan Island hopping on the Puget Sound, WA

Review for American Spirit to U.S.A.

It was a scene out of Downton Abbey when the titled owners arrived home after a long absence; all the American Cruise Lines crew and staff were lined up to welcome us on board the American Spirit. Though there was one major difference between the AC staff and the Downton Abbey staff, all the AC personnel were smiling. The employees of AC were extremely happy and pleasant people to be around, ...

I live in Florida so cool weather options are always great in summer. I had been to the area before and loved it, so this cruise was a great way to see the San Juan Islands. I have cruised on American CruiseLine several times before and love the intimacy of a small ship. There were less than 100 passengers. Every one of the stops were fabulous. Friday Harbor, Paulsbo and Port Angeles were my ...

We have visited Seattle and Vancouver, and have been told that the San Juan Islands are perfection in green and blue, plus we have cruised with American Cruise Lines (ACL) before and wanted to do so again. So we did, and were delighted with the Cruise! This is a case where the Cruise Line, the ship, and the ports are perfectly marched. The ship held 90 compatible passengers, most ports were ...

We had a great experience with American Cruise Lines on our trip to Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. Their staff went out of their way to make sure that we really enjoyed ourselves. The excursions were informative and fun (especially Hurricane Ridge - Olympic National Park, the Seattle city tour and Victoria, BC)! A special shout out to the cruise line staff - director, wait staff and ...

We choose this cruise for the weather. We live in the high desert and cooler temps were beckening for this time of the year. We enjoyed the mid 70's to low 80's during the day and 50's at night. We might have choose this cruise for the weather but was very impressed with American Cruise Lines. The ship was small and about 80 people onboard which made for getting to know others onboard enjoyable. ...

This past April I once again had the pleasure of sailing with The American Cruise Lines--this time on the American Spirit touring the Puget Sound & San Juan Islands. While on past cruises with ACL I frequently heard other passengers remarking how they loved this particular cruise so when I had the opportunity to go--I grabbed it! And I was not disappointed. From beautiful scenery to fabulous ...

Columbia River Cruise from Portland, Oregon

We felt super safe with all of the Covid protocols which influenced our decision. The weather did not cooperate (65 mph winds) so we missed 2 days of land activities. The crew was the best and they planned talks, documentaries, games, etc. to fill in the time. Water activities were all cancelled but we had hikes, winery visits, etc. Food and drinks were outstanding. Cabins are small and old ...

Amazing River Cruise

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 ...

We are seasoned cruisers and have been on both river and ocean cruises in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Why we chose ACL: Like many other travelers we were ready to cruise but wanted to stay in the USA. Wanted to see Washington and Oregon and this sounded ...

Expensive Columbia River Cruise NOT done perfectly

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

Just finished 1 week cruise on Queen of West Columbia & Snake River in Oct 2021. It was NOT "Small Ship Cruising Done Perfectly". The old ship is like a 2.5 star motel. The advertised "Exquisite Cuisine" was B average . The dinner rolls were always room temperature and hard. I recommend they switch to Hawaiian Sweet Rolls so that it's always soft. "Acclaimed Entertainment" consisted of ...
