Take a joy filled holiday cruise and let American handle every detail while you relax and enjoy an unforgettable stress-free holiday. American’s holiday cruises aboard their new fleet of intimate small ships are wonderful for solo travelers, couples, or family groups.

For the 2018 holiday season, American offers holiday cruises to many of the most popular river and coastal cruising destinations in the U.S. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s cruises are available along the lower Mississippi River and the Southeast Coast to sunny Florida.

American also has a very special Colonial Christmas Cruise—an 11-day cruise over both Christmas and New Year’s which travels the Line’s American Revolution itinerary in Chesapeake Bay (round-trip from Baltimore). This cruise is ideal for history buffs and includes a rare stop inside Washington, D.C. on the Capital’s southwest waterfront.

All throughout the month of December, American’s ships are adorned in holiday décor and offer special holiday meals, cocktail parties, and seasonally inspired events both on board and on shore. In addition to all the holiday fun, American’s guests will experience guided shore excursions, award-winning enrichment, and the largest most comfortable accommodations in the industry.

All American’s holiday cruises include a complimentary pre-cruise stay on board the ship with a special welcome reception. Savings of up to $2,000 per stateroom are still available on select holiday cruise dates.

To date, donations from American’s “Give-Back” program have resulted in over 100,000 meals provided for families in need across the state.
