Cruising the USA

American Cruise Lines…ACL…sails the Mississippi, Hudson and Columbia Rivers and the coastal regions of New England, Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, San Francisco Bay, Chesapeake Bay and Intercoastal Southeast.

Altogether, ACL ships visit 28 states with 35 itineraries.

We have sailed with ACL in New England waters. We especially enjoyed complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres each evening before dinner, mingling with other guests to share the adventures of the day and meeting guest lecturers who were sailing with us.

Please call us at 804-557-3006 for more information.

“Small Ship Cruising Done Perfectly” is ACL’s commitment to an elevated guest experience delivering unequaled level of attention, delivering exceptional culture, history, cuisine, entertainment and enrichment programs on the youngest fleet in USA waters. The goal is to have guests return home relaxed, enriched and with new lifelong friends.

ACL designs and builds its fleet at its shipyard on the Chesapeake Bay with proprietary state of the art designs that include hybrid catamarans, paddlewheelers, river and coastal ships with room for 90 to 180 passengers. ACL boasts the largest staterooms in the industry.

Your cruise comes with daily free excursions, complimentary beer and wine at lunch and dinner, an evening cocktail hour, and daily entertainment which often includes informal talks by local experts on the history, habitat, cuisine and culture of the region you are visiting.

Cruises on the Mississippi, Columbia and for Alaska out of Juneau start with a complimentary pre-cruise hotel stay.
