American Song: Low-key river cruising in Pacific Northwest

Health advisory: Vaccines may be required in specific instances when necessitated by the ports or states visited, and guests will be asked to show proof of their vaccination status.


The 186-passenger ship American Song became the 10th ship from fast-expanding American Cruise Lines in 2018. The ship integrates contemporary design while maintaining the comfort level that American Cruise Lines is popular for. Quieter, wider and faster than other river ship, it is the most environmentally friendly in the industry.

American Song features modern décor and amenities, modern technologies, the largest staterooms in the river ship space and private balconies in every room, offering great views of the passing landscapes. In the intimate atmosphere on board, passengers will find spacious lounges, observation decks and well-lit, spacious dining venues, both inside and on deck.

Who will like sailing on American Song

This intimate cruise ship will appeal to a generally older, low-key crowd who enjoy sightseeing and guided tours of small harbors and natural landscapes in an unhurried atmosphere.

Where American Song sails
