For passengers who are well traveled, but ever curious, sophisticated but informal, American Cruise Lines offers experiences to suit their style. Our thirteen distinct itineraries include visits to the most amazing destinations in the United States from coast to coast. Culturally enriching shore excursions allow passengers to explore the region in depth. From the most cosmopolitan cities to remote islands nestled along the shore, passengers get a unique perspective on the area as they're guided by expert naturalists and historians.

These amazing destinations are intermingled with the pleasure of the small ship cruising experience. With no more than 120 passengers on each of our ships, the cozy intimacy of our cruises is conducive to making new and lasting friendships, retreating to the library in solitude, or relaxing on the decks and quietly enjoying the spectacular show of nature along the shoreline.

We’ve been in business for 30 years, but we boast the youngest fleet in the small ship cruising industry, with ships built in 2000-2009. We have also recently acquired the paddle wheeler - Queen of the West. Our staterooms are the most spacious in small ship cruising – all over 220 square feet in size, and each with large opening picture windows and a private bathroom. Many even have private verandas. American Cruise Lines’ passengers are accustomed to luxury and a certain level of service, both of which are in abundant supply onboard our cruises. From the sumptuous meals, to the highly personalized service, guests are assured that their individual needs and preferences are being addressed throughout the cruise.
