Onboard Experts, Historians and Riverlorians
American Cruise Lines invites carefully selected experts to join us on each of our cruises. Their informal lectures, open discussions and activities bring local history, nature and culture to life through their knowledge and passion for American heritage. These enlighteners, naturalists and historians also lead shore excursions to give guests behind the scenes insight of some of America’s best-kept secrets and favourite treasures.
What is a Riverlorian? Created by combining the words river, lore and historian together, a Riverlorian is a knowledgeable person who shares the rich history and folklore of America's rivers with others.
