American Cruise Lines, Inc. is a small-ship cruise line with its headquarters in Guilford, Connecticut, United States. The line operates twelve small cruise ships along the Eastern Seaboard and Western Seaboard as well as the Mississippi-Ohio and Columbia-Snake river systems of the United States.
With American Cruise Lines, it’s about Simple Sophistication. As we travel to the most amazing destinations across the United States, we offer our guests an elevated cruise experience – not expressed through black tie affairs and formal gatherings, but rather through personalized exploration, well-designed enrichment programs on board and ashore, and all the comforts that come with cruising on the newest fleet in the country.
American Cruise Lines delivers culture, history, and enlightenment, without the distractions of buffets, casinos, and wave pools. Every itinerary is a unique experience and a delight for the senses. Viewing our country’s beautiful landscapes and historic landmarks up-close, tasting the best regional cuisine, listening to the area’s finest entertainment, and feeling the warm camaraderie of the crew and fellow guests, are the intangibles not offered by other cruise lines.
Our small ship design creates an intimate environment in which our guests are treated with the utmost care and attention. Our crew members take pride in knowing our guests by name and understanding their preferences. Every stateroom is a spacious sanctuary in which to relax after a day of discovery and contemplate the adventures that lie ahead. Guests come back from an American Cruise Lines cruise relaxed, enriched, and with new lifelong friends.
