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 entered service in June 2007. Similar to the American Spirit, it will offer guests the same unique style of cruising that has become our hallmark. From charming small towns to gracious southern ports, the American Star will bring guests to places of historic interest and magnificent beauty. Onboard, each guest will be able to unwind in the friendly and accommodating atmosphere created by our staff.

The Independence has become a client favorite since its introduction in 2010. Cruising similar routes as the American Glory and American Star, the ship 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.
