Grande Mariner: Jacksonville, FL, 8 nights

Room amenities: Air-conditioning. All cabins feature fresh air ventilation systems, which continuously feed in fresh air and remove "used" air. Only 110-Volt AC appliances may be used. Electric shavers and toothbrushes may be operated without converters.

Facility amenities: GRANDE Mariner features all the special designs that have made ACCL cruises so successful, as well as some new designs. The patented bow ramp allows passengers to disembark without the need for docks or jetties. The shallow draft lets the ship sail through shallow waterways. The retractable pilot house is ideal for sailing under low bridges and locks. The ship also features a stern swimming platform and two launches (one of them with a glass bottom) which can be boarded from the stern.
