Join us aboard and relish in the excitement, grace and beauty of small ship cruising. American Cruise Lines offers unique, personal voyages through the smooth waters of America's east coast to travellers seeking the exceptional. With fewer than 100 passengers and specially designed to allow smooth travel through Americas protected inland waterways, mystic coves and sheltered harbours, American Cruise Line vessels offer a perspective larger vessels cannot.
Your American-flagged ship will provide you with the utmost safety, comfort and convenience and will bring you up close to places of natural beauty and cultural and historical interest, docking in the heart of exciting ports and quaint coastal villages each day.
Exemplary Service and Exceptional Accommodations
Friendly, professional all-American crewmembers offer an extraordinary quality of gracious hospitality and personalized attention to discerning passengers. This outstanding level of service is always available to make your journey exquisitely memorable and relaxing. Your masterfully skilled chef creates delectable feasts for each meal. Carefully selected fresh seafood, meats, and produce are often purchased in the ports we visit, allowing your chef to highlight the cuisine with local flavour. Meals are cooked to order and served in the glass-enclosed dining salon, where every seat offers a panoramic view. American Cruise Lines staterooms, at more than 200 square feet, are by far the largest in their class. Many staterooms have a private balcony and all feature a roomy, private bath and a large, opening picture window, allowing you spectacular, up-close views of landscape, ports and sea.
Historic Charm, Unique Cultures and Natural Wonder
No matter which itinerary you choose, you will experience the beauty, brilliance and thrill of cruising on a small ship. Along with magnificent up-close views, you will experience the history, culture and natural elements of each of the unique coastal ports we visit. Accommodating no more than 93 passengers, we never overwhelm the local communities we visit. Specially arranged shore excursions allow you to explore and discover the scenery, museums, galleries, landscapes and wildlife of each port. Onboard activities feature local authors, entertainers, historians and nature and wildlife experts. These guest speakers entertain, educate, enlighten, invite questions about the places we visit, and often lead onshore expeditions. Whether you are an art or history-lover, an avid bird watcher or a student of indigenous plants and trees, you will be treated to an abundance of cultural, historical and natural sights, and the stories behind them, on your cruise.
Because American Cruise Lines ships are the perfect size to navigate small waterways, they provide an up-close and personal experience that larger ships cannot. While onboard, you will experience the visions, sounds and scents of America, and on shore you will be welcomed to experience the life and history of unique, charming ports.
