Staterooms are comfortable, dining is excellent without exception. The tours are well planned and off-ship experiences are very well organized and of high historical importance. Best of all, these are small, intimate and friendly touring experiences.

We have cruised with American Cruise Lines 3 times now -- to Alaska, the Upper Mississippi River and the New England Islands - soon to take our fourth cruise to Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. Each cruise has been a delightful experience; comfortable cabins and lounges, good food and good programs. All personnel have been friendly and accommodating, whatever the needs were.

We had a great time. The staff was superb, the food excellent and we really enjoyed the speakers each day. We have told numerous couples of our experience and several have either looked into or actually booked a trip. We really like the all inclusive cost as opposed to a base cost and numerous extras.

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

    About American Cruiselines

    American Cruise Lines is a family-owned company whose fleet of six small ships cruise rivers and waterways across America. Passengers -- most of whom are affluent and age 50 and above -- can sail the Mississippi or Columbia rivers aboard vintage-style (but newly built or renovated) paddlewheelers, or take other small ships along the Intracoastal Waterway of the southeastern U.S., through Alaska’s Inside Passage, or among the islands of New England, to name a few of the three dozen itineraries.

    American Cruise Lines has been undergoing a recent rapid expansion that mirrors the fast-growing craze of European river cruising. Consequently, its fleet is among the newest in the world: The line has two more ships under construction and three more will follow in the next three years. The newest ships will carry no more than 200 passengers each, and all its current ships hold from 49 to 150 passengers.

    Small ships don’t mean small cabins. Most are roomy and many have good-sized balconies. There are also spacious public areas, including observation decks, lounges, and glass-enclosed dining rooms, which offer open seating at meals. The staff provides highly personalized service and passengers have responded -- about two of every five passengers is a repeat cruiser with American Cruise Lines.

    Itineraries are heavily destination oriented, with port stops nearly every day. Though lengths vary from six to 14 nights, week-long voyages are the norm. Historical and cultural lectures as well as low-key entertainments are offered on each cruise. Rates are at the luxury level, but are all-inclusive (including wine, beer, and cocktails) except for shore excursions -- which are included in Alaska.
