Small Ship Cruising NOT Done Perfectly
"This was our second American Cruise Line experience, after loving our first cruise. But this time was definitely not as good. The ship was lovely and our cabin very comfortable. It was the uniformed officers, or..."Read More

Just returned from an American Cruise Line trip on board their ship Constitution. The Hudson River cruise was round trip starting in Manhattan, NY to Albany, NY and return. This was my 5th cruise with ACL. The Constitution is one of ACL's newer vessels built in 2018. It's a beauty! The accommodations were top notch. The public spaces were bright and cheery. On board activities were plentiful and ...

I made a couple of posts on the American Cruise Lines Group before our 8/23 Grand New England Cruise expressing concern over whether it could live up to the fabulous experience we had with Viking on our first cruise two years ago after reading so many brutal reviews on Yelp and Cruise Critic. Well, about everything went wrong on this cruise that could go wrong and we had an absolutely fabulous ...

Frustrating, but Still Pleasant Trip

Grand New England Cruise We just returned from this cruise in August. This was one of the most frustrating cruises we have ever been on. At the same time, it was pleasant because of the places we visited (from Boston to Bar Harbor), the small size of the ship and the lengths that the crew on board went to make lemonade out of lemons. For example, we had 2 special events planned for our ...

Beware! This cruise is unsafe, hazardous, a liability, and a tragedy waiting to happen. The facts are that they are grossly understaffed and the crew that is aboard is negligently trained; they are incompetent and uninformed. The staff is not fully vaccinated, although the Manager of the Hotel, has lied and sworn they are, the Captain and Medic aboard has verified otherwise. The majority of the ...

The ship, while only 3 years old (we were told) has not been maintained; Surface rust on the outside of the ship and more worrisome appearing rust on the support cables for the tender. Stained carpet and upholstery as well. Ship was short staffed and the staff that were provided were poorly trained. Food was bad and rarely served as ordered. Chef staffing deck food bar was ornery and ...

Although we had quite a few little issues on our cruise, overall it was nice. The ports and excursions were great, albeit a bit disorganized at times. Food was good with lots of seafood and fish, especially lobster. Cabin is big, bigger than most on small ships, as was the bathroom. We did have a shortage of bathroom amenities at first, but that was fixed when they received supplies a few days ...

An Expensive and Terrible Cruise

Route: Grand New England tour, departed Boston July 14, ended Boston July 24 Cost: ACL New England ~$750/day Seabourn Alaska ~$640 to $760 per day Silversea Alaska ~$650 To begin with, some of the problems which I describe below came from trying to run a ship with about 80% of the hotel staff and about 50% of that 80% hotel staff trained, and lots of shifting around of the hotel ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise based on a previous experience with the company. My Mom couldn't say enough good things about American after her first cruise. She then spent nearly $20,000 for us to take a mother /daughter trip. For the last 2 years we had looked forward to the immaculate ship, personalized service, and fine cuisine, she had experienced. We had not had the opportunity to travel together ...

• The on-board entertainer, part of the on-board welcoming committee, was condescending to and downright rude to passengers, most of whom were senior citizens. • When we went to bed the first night, we had no sheets on the bed, just a basic mattress cover and duvet on top. Our thought was that this was part of the new Covid requirements for ships. • We only had hand towels and no glasses ...

My wife and I took this cruise because it was the only one we could find running post pandemic. The reviews were pretty good but the cost was much more than a larger cruise ship. We thought being on a smaller ship we would get more personal service. Also we thought the ship would be more elegant. We were wrong and new it as soon as we stepped on board. Some of the staff walked off the ship and ...
