American Cruise Lines begins Mississippi cruise season

Monday, 26 Feb, 2024 0

American Cruise Lines has officially begun its Mississippi River cruise season in New Orleans.

Over the next few weeks, all five of ACL’s Mississippi riverboats will begin cruising on the Lower Mississippi.

This year will be the company’s largest season ever across the country, especially on the Mississippi.

ACL’s new riverboats will sail more than 16 itineraries throughout the region, also exploring Mississippi tributaries, the Tennessee, Ohio and Cumberland Rivers.

In May of this year, American will begin operating several new Mississippi River experiences, including the first Great Smoky Mountains National Parks cruises.

This new itinerary allows guests to explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a 12-day itinerary from Knoxville, TN, to Nashville, TN, cruising the Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers.

Also in May, the company’s first new 35-Day Civil War Battlefields cruise will depart.

This cruises the Mississippi, Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers as well as large expanses of the East Coast and Chesapeake Bay.

It visits over 20 Battlefields of the Civil War.

In August, it will sail a historic 61-Day Great United States cruise – the longest river cruise in US history.

It explores the entire Mississippi River, 20 states, three national parks and four rivers, as well as sailing the East Coast and Hudson River ports from New York City, to Boston, and Bar Harbor, Maine.

In the past five years, American Cruise Lines has nearly tripled its US fleet while also introducing brand new riverboats on the Mississippi River every year since 2018.

Following this week’s opening on the Mississippi, the company’s full fleet of 19 small ships and riverboats will continue deploying across the country, visiting over 140 US ports this year.
