CruiseCompete, the premier online cruise marketplace since 2003, in response to popular consumer demand is proud to introduce two new USA inland waterways and river cruise lines: American Cruise Lines and American Queen Steamboat Company. One of the many advantages of small ships and river cruises is they can go where big ships can’t and that is one reason river cruises are the fastest-growing segment of the cruise market.
American Cruise Lines
American Cruise Lines specializes in a unique style of small ship cruising along the inland waterways and rivers of the United States. Thirteen fascinating itineraries include the Pacific Northwest, Maine, New England Islands, Hudson River, Chesapeake Bay, the Historic South & Golden Isles, Florida, Alaska and the Mississippi River aboard the brand new paddlewheeler Queen of the Mississippi. With no more than 150 guests on board, passengers experience each port of call, up close and personal, all while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow travelers and the exemplary service that is the hallmark of American Cruise Lines.
