American Cruise Lines

American Cruise Lines specializes in small-ship cruising along the inland waterways and rivers of the United States. Traveling along scenic routes aboard a fleet of superb riverboats and small ships, guests will find all of the comforts of a luxury hotel while discovering intriguing attractions and sights along the Mississippi, Hudson, Columbia and Snake rivers.

Every American Cruise Lines ship offers an attentive crew and intimate atmosphere with no more than 150 passengers on board. Guests enjoy highly personalized service, spacious staterooms with private balconies, gourmet cuisine, complimentary room service during breakfast and a free open-bar cocktail hour every evening before dinner. Comfortable lounges, large observation decks and glass-enclosed dining rooms are ideal for guests to relax, socialize and observe passing scenery and wildlife.

Onboard entertainment includes riverlorians, local musicians and expert lecturers who will share insights about the local history, nature and culture of the destinations visited. The company’s modern ships are designed to easily navigate America’s waterways, docking in the heart of each port and taking you where larger ships could never go. Featured shore excursions with professional guides offer guests in-depth views of museums, national parks, mansions and more.
