Tipping

Tipping is, of course, at the individual's preference, but American Cruise Lines asks that you do not tip until the last day of the trip. A customary amount is US$125.00 per person, but feel free to tip as you see appropriate. Cash, personal or travelers' checks are the preferred method. Credit cards are also accepted, with requests that passengers paying with credit cards contact the Hotel Manager at least one day before the end of the cruise.

Children

American Cruise Lines ships and itineraries are designed for travelers who share an interest in history, culture and nature. Guests truly enjoy the onboard ambiance, and feel very at home in our huge lounges, single-seating dining salon, and oversized staterooms.

Thus while children are welcome there are no specific facilities or baby sitting services provided.
