American Cruise Lines

American Cruise Lines specializes in small-ship coastal sailings of the continental United States. Captivating itineraries explore some of the country's most scenic routes in destinations like the Pacific Northwest, Chesapeake Bay, Alaska and more. Passengers get an intimate look at each region on ships that carry fewer than 200 guests.

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. Each vessel features comfortable lounges and large observation decks, ideal for guests to relax, socialize and observe passing scenery and wildlife. Glass-enclosed dining salons provide panoramic views, and spacious staterooms boast large windows and roomy baths. Many cabins have private balconies.

Onboard entertainment includes local musicians, theatrical performances and games. A well-stocked library provides reading material and videos highlighting the region visited, while experts on board hold informal lectures and open discussions on local history, nature and culture.

In addition to oceangoing cruises, American Cruise Lines also offers river cruises along the Mississippi, Hudson and Columbia rivers in the U.S. To see itineraries and prices for the company's river cruises, click here.
