This applies to airfare for 19 major cruise hubs in 16 states.
The option may be selected at the time of cruise booking and is not subject to future changes in fares.
'Our new flat rate airfare is an added convenience when booking small ship cruises with us. As a company we are always looking for new ways to personalize our guest services, from booking to boarding, and the new flat rate airfare will create a seamless experience for many of our guests,' said Carter Robertson, EVP American Cruise Lines.
2022 cruise season begins in February
The line's 2022 season is scheduled to begin in late February and continue through year-end.
American's small-ship fleet has doubled in size in the past five years and now includes explorations in 31 states from Alaska to Florida.
Each year, American has been introducing new US-built ships and expanding its offerings on land, air and sea. In addition to free pre-cruise hotel stays available with all river cruises, the line recently added more than 50 new shore excursions, private motor coaches that follow its riverboats and land packages that include Four Seasons hotels among the options.
