American Cruise Lines Adds Alton, Illinois as Turnaround Port
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, August 25, 2019 - As flood waters have receded, riverboats have resumed cruising the Mississippi River. The Becky Thatcher and the Tom Sawyer offer daily one hour cruises and a two hour skyline dinner cruise from their dock on the St. Louis Riverfront.

The 185-passenger America, part of the fleet of modern riverboats from American Cruise Lines, docked overnight August 15 on the St. Louis Riverfront. This Tuesday, August 27, the Sprit of Peoria paddlewheel riverboat will take passengers on an all day cruise to Grafton, Il and return to St. Louis in the evening.

Recently, the City of Alton announced it had approved a five-year agreement with American Cruise Lines to add a turnaround port on the Alton riverfront for the Mississippi River passenger cruise ships. Service is expected to begin in 2020.

A spokesperson for American Cruise Lines noted that the company will be bringing guests and their fleet of small ships to both St. Louis and Alton.

American operates the largest and newest fleet of coastal cruise ships, Victorian-style paddlewheelers, and the only modern riverboats in the U.S. All ships accommodate 100-200 passengers and are built, crewed, and registered in the U.S.A.
