Worst Cruise Ever

The Boat was dirty, bug infested, food was fair, service was terrible, speaker was clueless to anything about our destinations. Time in port was very short, if you got on 2nd bus for a tour, you missed out on most of the tour do to lack of time. Entertainment started out pretty good, by the end of trip it is not so good. People were nice, however, they were always apologizing for lack of ...

I wanted to travel to upper Mississippi to 4 states I had not visited. The cruise was promoted as Fall Foliage on the Upper Mississippi. My group had been planning for this trip for over a year. The route was changed due to flooding, and we were officially notified AFTER the boat left St Louis port. Management knew the situation and could have notified us before we flew from NC to St Louis the ...

Wanted to do a river cruise, but didn't want to fly to Europe. Shopped for itineraries, and decided on the Mississippi. Shopped Cruise lines and decided on American Cruise Line. It was a really good package, including a pre-cruise hotel in St. Louis, all-inclusive cocktails and wine, highly rated cuisine, relatively new river boat, and an itinerary that sounded interesting. All-in-all, it ...

This was my second cruise with American Cruise Lines. I was a solo female traveler. I gave myself two days in downtown Pittsburgh and enjoyed myself very much. I stayed at the same hotel as the cruise line's designated night-before stay and appreciated that the hotel transition was smoothly done (Hampton Inn Downtown). We hit a snag the first day; we had to be bused down to Marietta, Ohio (three ...

Boat and service was very good at first. But did not follow the itinerary and had to disembark a day early and was bussed 4 hrs to Pittsburgh. The itinerary called for cruising at night but captain would not. If they won’t follow the basic itinerary in ACL Cruise Guide then change it. Lost a full day aboard ship. Letter of complaint was not responded to. Sad. We did very much enjoyed the ...

On July 7th this year, my wife and I boarded the American Cruise Line Queen of the Mississippi for what we thought was going to be a wonderful and relaxing Ohio River cruise experience as promise by the information advertised on the latest sales catalog and expecting a nice relaxing and adventurous cruise. Unfortunately, this cruise was the cruise from HELL. My wife and I are seasoned cruisers ...

Wonderful facilities and splendid service. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent air conditioning in hot and humid weather. Other passengers were a friendly and agreeable lot. The scenery was excellent with several days of just cruising without shore stops. The only hitch was an unavoidable upstream occurrence of heavy rains which caused the river level ...

Everything was perfect from start to finish. All activities started when they were supposed to. Meal options were varied and very delicious. Staff went above and beyond to ensure satisfaction. Everyone had a great smile and a happy greeting when you passed by. They say Disney is the 'happiest place on earth' but the staff on this cruise rivals them. The stateroom (category AAL) was clean ...

I was travelling with a travel group out of Hewitt, TX My friend and I travel quite a bit and are always looking for something different. When this opportunity became available we were very excited. We have been on several ocean cruises but had never been on a river cruise. The rooms were very nice and our gal assigned to our room did an excellent job of taking care of us! The food was ...

Traveled with 86 year old Mother in law, Sister in law, her husband and my husband. Fantastic cruise! So relaxing and comfortable. You want for nothing on this ship! Beautifully appointed Staterooms and each room offers a nice sized balcony and beautiful view of the River. Interesting Ports of call. Learned so much about Mark Twain and the history of the Mississippi River. Met so many ...
