Well-received American Cruise Lines' Alaska Inside Passage cruises to be offered again in 2013.

American Cruise Lines , a leading operator of riverboats and small cruise ships in the United States, announces the conclusion and success of its inaugural 2012 season in Alaska. The 100-passenger American Spirit – the newest small ship in Alaska –operated numerous weekly roundtrip cruises this summer from Juneau.

The inaugural season in Alaska was extremely well received by guests who were the first to enjoy Alaska in the comfort, elegance and intimacy of the American Spirit. While onboard, they encountered towering glaciers at close range and spotted wildlife including humpback whales, brown bears and bald eagles.

Guests also enjoyed the company and insight of an onboard Alaskan expert and naturalist, offering daily lecturers and presentations on Alaska’s history, culture and natural wonders. They were greeted by the port towns, with a special welcoming event held for the inaugural visit to Alaska’s famed Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.

American Cruise Lines, the largest U.S. cruise company, operates a fleet of riverboats and small cruise ships offering more than 35 unique itineraries along the rivers and inland waterways of the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, the Mississippi River and the U.S. East Coast, from Maine to Florida.
