We have a long standing relationship with Smithsonian.com and this allows us to combine two ideologies which aim to promote the beauty and history of this country. - Timothy Beebe, Vice President, American Cruise Lines

Guilford, CT (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

American Cruise Lines (http://www.americancruiselines.com) is pleased to announce “Exploring the American Experience,” a new initiative with Smithsonian.com to promote American history, culture and literature.

“As the premium provider of American river cruises, we knew immediately this joint initiative was a perfect match,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President of American Cruise Lines. “We have a long standing relationship with Smithsonian.com and this allows us to combine two ideologies which aim to promote the beauty and history of this country.”

Exploring the American Experience will provide readers with enticing educational content focused solely on the United States. Readers can retrace the steps of the adventures of Lewis & Clark, read about the gun slingers of the Wild West, Louis Armstrong’s New Orleans, or the true story behind the famed novel, Moby Dick. Exploring the American Experience with Smithsonian.com and American Cruise Lines will transport readers back in time and enable them to experience the intricate fabric of American history and how it helped shape the world.

The program will run for three months and online components will include articles as well as tailored videos.

American Cruise Lines’ fleet of elegant riverboats and small cruise ships take guests to the most fascinating U.S. destinations, including the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, the Mississippi River, and the U.S. East Coast, from Maine to Florida. The line most recently helped revive paddlewheel river cruising in America, with two authentic paddlewheelers currently operating on the Mississippi and Columbia Rivers. With four more new paddlewheelers on the way, the company has big plans for river cruising in America.

“We hope people understand that our very goal as a provider of domestic river cruises is to offer a unique way for people to “Explore the American Experience,” added Beebe. “We couldn’t have asked for a more strategic and compelling partnership than this one with Smithsonian.com.”
