American Spirit Wiki

American Spirit is a coastal passenger ship similar to design to 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.
