Operator of riverboats and small cruise ships in the United States, American Cruise Lines, has been voted this year’s leading North American cruise line by travel excellence organization, World Travel Awards. (Referred to as “the Oscar’s of the travel industry” by the Wall Street Journal).

Long established in cruise travel, American Cruise Lines has most recently received world-wide attention as the first to revive paddlewheel river cruising in America, particularly on the Mississippi River, a cruising region that had been dormant for several years. Last summer, the line successfully launched week-long cruises on its brand new 150-passenger Queen of the Mississippi.

The company says that due to high demand, the line is building a new riverboat due to enter service in the spring of 2015.

“We are proud to be recognized for our excellence in river cruising,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President, American Cruise Lines. “We have worked hard to not only preserve American river cruising, but to also raise the bar and offer the best possible experience for our guests. We are thankful to all those who voted for us.”
