American Cruise Lines Ships

American Cruise Lines have a large and expanding fleet of ships that are designed to get you into rivers and inland waterways of the East Coast, Mississippi, Pacific Northwest and Alaska, where large cruise ships could never go. Check out the ships and their cruises below!


Originally built for cruising the East Coast, the American Spirit transitioned beautifully to West Coast living. Spending Spring and Fall in the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound, the American Spirit then navigates Alaska’s Inside Passage during the summer months.



The American Star has been a classic choice when cruising the east coast for a few years, quickly becoming a favorite of our clients.



The Independence has become a client favorite since its introduction in 2010. Cruising similar routes as the American Glory and American Star, the ship was built just slightly larger than the two so as to make the balconies and staterooms even more spacious. The Rolls Royce stabilizers will create a calm cruise experience as you venture from the islands of New England to the rivers of Florida.

Choose to cruise the Columbia River on the Queen of the West. Her beautiful, classic paddlewheel will power you through the Columbia River Gorge. The Queen is a veteran of the Pacific Northwest, but was renovated in 2011 with upgrades to the staterooms, lounges and galley.


Sister ship to the ‘America‘, the Queen of the Mississippi made its debut in 2015. This paddlewheeler has recreated the grandeur of past riverboats while possessing the latest safety, environmental and construction technologies. The ship has the look of a traditional riverboat along with more amenities, a faster speed, and an unmatched level of comfort. Features include six unique lounges, a library, an elegant dining salon, elevator service to all decks, and exceptionally large staterooms.



American Pride, docked in Portland, OR

After cruising the Mississippi River, the American Pride paddlewheel made its way to the Columbia & Snake Rivers for the first time! In addition to the standard 7-night cruises, the American Pride will also be offering 4-night cruises, roundtrip from Portland, and 10-night cruises from Clarkston, WA to Portland.
