CruiseCompete, the premier online cruise marketplace since 2003, in response to popular consumer demand is proud to introduce two new USA inland waterways and river cruise lines: American Cruise Lines and American Queen Steamboat Company. One of the many advantages of small ships and river cruises is they can go where big ships can't and that is one reason river cruises are the fastest-growing segment of the cruise market.
