The small ship experience January 2016

The Panama Canal & Costa Rica - Eastbound 2018

The small ship experience (80+ people) was wonderful. By the end of the cruise we were able to put names and hometowns with about half of the faces. The two directors were wonderful. Constantly keeping us advised of the day's activities, repeating instruction, gently herding, always with a smile and friendly demeanor.

I loved our ACIS trip May 2019

ACIS Company reviews

I loved our ACIS trip. The biggest complaint was the economy seating on the long over night flight. Adults didn't have the availability to upgrade due to the type of seats that were purchased. We also got our seat info. fairly close to the date of departure (30 days) which made it difficult to choose seats. The airline representative said that we should have received our flight info. earlier. Everything else about our trip was exceptional. My only hesitation in booking another trip is not having a guarantee that adults could choose to pay to have seats out of economy. Read more
