Guilford, CT (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
American Cruise Lines (http://www.americancruiselines.com), operator of the newest riverboats and small cruise ships in the United States, announced today its Fall Cruise Collection, a selection of cruises handpicked to showcase the beautiful 2014 fall season. Cruise itineraries include the Columbia & Snake Rivers, Puget Sound & San Juan Islands, Chesapeake Bay, and the Hudson River.
Columbia & Snake Rivers: In October of 1805, Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery paddled down the Columbia River on the famous expedition into the West. Today, the autumn colors and migratory wildlife that Meriwether Lewis described in his famous journal are much the same aboard Queen of the West, as it follows their exact route. Autumn is the perfect time to relive the historic expedition and experience the Northwest’s rich tapestry of landscapes and fascinating human endeavors. Featured Dates: October 18 and October 25, 2014
Puget Sound & San Juan Islands: Guests will leave relaxed and rejuvenated after eight days enjoying the crisp autumn air of Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. In autumn, clear skies and sparkling water offer a powerful contrast with the colorful coast where nestled between Canada’s Vancouver Island and the U.S. mainland are hundreds of islands that are home to a diverse natural wonderland. Featured Dates: September 27 and October 18, 2014
Chesapeake Bay: Autumn time is a spectacular time to experience Chesapeake Bay, an area rich in maritime history and surrounded by a colorful display of changing foliage. Along the shoreline, guests will pass battlefields, seaports, historical homes, marinas and scenic lighthouses, gliding into ports only accessible to small cruise ships. Guests will step back in time visiting villages that played crucial roles in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Featured Dates: November 2 and November 8, 2014
Hudson River Fall Foliage: Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains on the western shore and the Taconic and Berkshire Hills to the east, the Hudson is rich in both history and beauty. This popular cruise showcases the bright changing colors and towering mountains for which the Hudson River Valley is so well known. The cities and towns along the way feature some of the most magnificent architecture in America. Featured Dates: October 18 and October 25, 2014
“The fall season is one of the best times to experience small ship cruising with American Cruise Lines,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President of American Cruise Lines. “This cruise collection showcases one of the most beautiful and anticipated seasons in the United States, with various sailings offered during peak foliage. Guests can expect an experience unlike any other.”
