WHY RIVER CRUISING?

Riverboats are inherently smaller with fewer guests onboard, making for a more intimate and personalized travel experience. Guests often make lasting friendships with other travelers and may even book future river cruises together.

The crew and onboard experts also become well-acquainted with passengers and can cater to individual tastes. It’s not uncommon that the crew knows each passenger by name and that onboard historians share a meal with guests.

Unlike cruising on the open ocean, the riverboat journey is a smooth one, with land never far out of sight. A riverboat is able to dock in the heart of destinations, resulting in an up-close exploration of the unique cities that define America.

WHY AMERICAN CRUISE LINES?

As you travel along America’s legendary rivers, enjoy fascinating presentations from onboard experts about the music, history, culture, geology, and biodiversity of the places you’ll visit

American Cruise Lines’ new series of modern riverboats showcases contemporary styling and amenities. Featured on each are private balconies in every stateroom and spectacular views from everywhere on the ship.

If a Victorian-style riverboat is more your style, get on board America, American Pride, Queen of the Mississippi, or Queen of the West. Enjoy the nostalgia of a paddlewheeler, while experiencing the conveniences of a new ship.

DESTINATIONS

Learn tales of characters who helped shape the history of America, from Lewis and Clark to Sacagawea and the legendary John Colter.

Through engaging presentations aboard and ashore, learn about the history of America’s birthplace from the first settlers to the present.

Discover the river’s role in the development of American music and discover how steamboats played a major part in America’s western expansion.

Learn about the underlying geology of the area, coastal culture and ecology, native wildlife, and maritime heritage, including the history of pirates.

PUGET SOUND

As you cruise, listen to onboard experts describe the native wildlife including whales, eagles, and seals from the sun deck.

While cruising, discover fascinating facts on the region’s flora, fauna, geology, and wildlife as well as the history of the native people.

MUSIC

Nashville is home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Grand Ole Opry, and the Johnny Cash Museum. Memphis is home to the famous Sun Studios and Graceland mansion. It’s also the city that launched the careers of Elvis Presley, B.B. King, and many other musicians. St. Louis is synonymous with the Blues, enough so that there is a specific style of the genre called “St. Louis Blues.” Dive deep into the culture and history of every destination.

American Cruise Lines carefully selects industry experts to join each cruise. Their informal lectures, open discussions, and activities bring local history, nature and culture to life through their knowledge and passion for American heritage.
