American Spirit Review

Review of American Spirit

The 2004-built MS American Spirit cruise ship is one of the oldest ACL-American Cruise Lines ships - together with American Glory (2002-2019/scuttled), American Star (2007) and American Independence (2010).

The riverboat was last refurbished in 2017.

History - construction and ownership

The shipowner American Cruise Lines (ACL) is the USA's largest river cruise company (headquarters in Guilford Connecticut) operational since 1991. The company specializes in cruise shipping on the USA's largest navigable inland waterways (rivers and lakes) as well as in cruises along the USA East Coast, USA West Coast and Florida. All ACL vessels feature some of the industry's largest passenger cabins with private balconies, spacious lounges and outdoor deck spaces, gourmet cuisine, top-quality enrichment program with many complimentary land tours and excursions, and highly-personalized service by all-American staff and crew.

All ACL cruise ships are US-flagged and built by the company-owned Chesapeake Shipbuilding Yard in Salisbury (Maryland USA).

Other amenities are the free cocktails before dinner, American staff and crew, Library Lounge, putting green, fitness, sunshade, lifts (serving all decks).

American Spirit Wiki

American Spirit is a coastal passenger ship similarly designed as the fleetmate American Star. Because of their smaller sizes, most ACL ships can visit less-accessible riverports with historic architecture, museums and culture-rich shore excursions.

American Spirit cruises in Alaska with departures from Seattle WA and Juneau AK. The list of the itineraries includes:

  • 7-day "Puget Sound and San Juan Islands" from Seattle
  • 7-day "Southeast Alaska" from Juneau
  • 11-day "Alaska Inside Passage" cruises departing from both Seattle and Juneau.
