American Cruise Lines Wins 2013 World Travel Award: Voted North America’s Leading River Cruise Company

October 7, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

American Cruise Lines (, operator of the newest riverboats and small cruise ships in the United States, is pleased to announce it 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, World Travel Awards has developed into the most prestigious and comprehensive awards program in travel and tourism. Thousands of travel organizations globally are nominated and voted for pushing the boundaries of excellence and implementing ground-breaking ideas.

This greatly recognized and respected award sheds light on American Cruise Lines’ successful and truly unique offering. Specializing in cruises on the rivers and inland waterways of the United States, American Cruise Lines is best known for its unique and intriguing destinations, highly attentive and personalized service, five-star dining and stunning fleet of new riverboats and small ships.

Long established and deeply experienced in cruise travel, American Cruise Lines has most recently received world-wide recognition 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. In fact, due to high demand, the line is building a new riverboat due to enter service in the spring of 2015. The highly coveted title of North America’s Leading River Cruise Company 2013 is a true indicator and proof point of the company’s success and satisfaction of both its guests and valued travel partners.

“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.”
