Mississippi River round trip

Review for American Song to North America River

Enjoy the ride
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I have always wanted to go on an adventure on the Mississippi River. Maybe from reading the Mark Twain books or just to know what it was like. The best part of any voyage is to enjoy the journey. The America is a six deck fully equipped ship with a restaurant on deck one that will seat all the guests aboard, we had a great chef that would creat delicious meals. My stateroom was on the second deck ...

We had never been to this area before and worried that it might be too hot or smoky in the summer, but we had good breezes throughout, with minimal smoke and the entire ship is cooled perfectly. Our room was larger than most of the big cruise lines, and we enjoyed the smaller ship with about 130 passengers onboard. All were friendly and warm and we liked sitting with new people at any table and at ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We had a family of five: my 86 year old mother, my sister and her husband in their 50/60's, their teenage daughter, myself in my 50's. My mom took us on this cruise to get us to love cruising, and it worked! This cruise was really geared to age 40 and up, the teenager only went along because it was part of a much longer trip, and while she enjoyed some of the ports, it was not the best experience ...

We wanted to see the river and escape our Las Vegas heat. Except for a couple of hot days in the east, mission accomplished. We learned there were terrible forest fires to our south, but we never saw the smoke. The Oregon scenery, seen from the Snake and Columbia Rivers, is spectacular. Passage through locks included. A river cruise is the way to do it, although ACL is still getting its act ...

The ship was relatively new and very nice with plenty of room in cabins and lounges. That is about all that I can say that was good The service was terrible, often so slow that you had to leave without your food to meet tour times etc. The menu mediocre at best, breakfast had no fruit, no yogurt, no pastries wonder bread and limited choices. Lunch and dinner was about the same. We did have 2 ...

The Good: Entire staff was wonderful and attentive. In particular Wait Staff Housekeeping, Excursion Director, was GREAT! The food was above average for cruise ships. Free flowing beverages with top shelf brands. Great assortment of wines. PPP and Covid Testing : If you look on their website and emails they sent they basically lied We were to be tested at Spokane ...

We cruised on The American Song through American Cruise Lines on the Columbia and Snake Rivers from Spokane to Portland. We chose this cruise because it was a domestic cruise, but most importantly because they touted their ability and concern for the health and welfare of passengers. That was not the case. We were supposed to be tested before getting on the bus for the port. Didn’t happen. ...

The ship, the American Song, is new modern and a very comfortable stay. The staff is friendly and so are the people. This small ship cruising is a whole different experience. I love that everything is taken care of so you can really relax. Our cruise director, Cory, was fantastic. He had the best games during happy hour everyone was so engaging. The historian, Bill, on board was a top notch ...

We hadn't been anywhere since February 2020. No boat, airplane or bus and after all our ocean and European cruises were cancelled, we decided to try this. My husband had read "Undaunted Courage" and always wanted to try the cruise on the Columbia/Snake River following the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The American Song was built in 2019 and was a pretty new ship. We flew to Spokane via Minneapolis. ...
