All of these and much, much more are possibilities with American Cruise Lines, whose fleet of 10 intimate ships sail the Mississippi River, New England, the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and the Southeast.

Menus are adjusted by the season and reflect the local tastes of the region in which you’re cruising. Spice up your life with authentic Cajun and creole cuisine in New Orleans, savor the smoky barbecue flavors of Memphis, indulge in a variety of succulent seafood in coastal regions or enjoy a little bit of everything, including delicious bread pudding and tasty pecan pie in the Southeast.

Many itineraries include pre-cruise packages that features a top-quality hotel stay the day before embarkation, with breakfast and free transportation to the ship.
