American Cruise Lines named North America's leading line for fourth year in a row


(GUILFORD, Conn.) — For the fourth year in a row, American Cruise Lines has been honored by the World Travel Awards, being named North America’s Leading Cruise Line for 2017. For the third year in a row, the line has won Travel Weekly’s Gold & Silver Magellan Awards, including the 2017 Gold Magellan Award for Best Overall River Cruise Ship, the 2017 Silver Magellan Award for Best Overall Small Cruise Ship, and the 2017 Silver Magellan Award for Best Overall River Cruising.

American Cruise Lines maintains the largest and newest fleet of fully stabilized and environmentally friendly ships in the U.S. Featuring the largest staterooms in the industry with full-sized bathrooms and furnished balconies, the new ships offer guests unobstructed views through floor-to-ceiling, sliding-glass balcony doors. All interior cabin entrances ensure the highest level of privacy. 

American Cruise Lines’ tradition in small ship cruising will continue into 2018 with the launch of the first ship in a new class of modern riverboats. The line also plans to launch a new costal cruising ship in 2018, American Constitution — the sister ship to American Constellation, which debuted earlier this year. With 10 ships and more in production, the line is looking forward to another year of smooth sailing.

American Cruise Lines has over 35 itineraries, visits 30 states and explores the rivers and regions of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, New England, the Southeast, and the Mississippi. For more information, visit
