  • Overview

    American Cruise Lines, the largest U.S. cruise line, is growing even more! We are looking for enthusiastic people who love to travel to join our shipboard hotel service team today.

    You will be living and working on one of our cruise ships as we travel the rivers of the United States. This is a position that gives you direct customer service interaction every day and is a solid foundation for any career in hospitality or food & beverage. No experience is necessary as we give you all the training you need to succeed onboard. We operate a fleet of 10 cruise ships, ranging from ultra-modern riverboats to paddlewheel queens that have the look of a steamboat. Join our growing team today.


    Training will begin in early February!

    American Cruise Lines has 10 ships, three of which are on the Mississippi River. The America and the Queen of the Mississippi are modern paddlewheelers reminiscent of steamboats from a bygone era, while the American Song is a brand new riverboat with contemporary décor and styling unlike anything else in the U.S. We have additional ships on the East Coast and in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Discover why American Cruise Lines is the leading (and fastest growing!) cruise line today.
