Eagle Society Program

The Eagle Society is a community of guests who explore America together with us. They share a love of learning, adventure, and the personalized atmosphere that is our hallmark. Eagle Society members become fast friends onboard and bond over tales of past cruises with American Cruise Lines.

Exclusive to Eagle Society Members

Each year, American Cruise Lines dedicates several cruises exclusively for Eagle Society members. This curated collection of Eagle Society Cruises includes a diverse sampling of regional and seasonal itineraries, from the Pacific Northwest to the Mississippi River region, and the shores of New England and the Historic South. You will enjoy enhanced experiences, enrichment, entertainment, events, activities, and special gifts.

Membership comes with a number of benefits, the greatest of which is the comfortable familiarity that exists onboard our ships. Guests and crew both become familiar faces who welcome you back and make each cruise feel like a reunion. All guests begin to understand the value of the Eagle Society during their first cruise and become eligible to enroll after their first cruise. Membership is always free and available after your first cruise.

Membership Benefits

  • Members-only exclusive cruises
  • Advance reservations to be the first on new ships and itineraries
  • Members’ quarterly newsletter
  • Eagle Society Referral Bonus* – refer friends and family and you will both save $500 on your next booking
  • An invitation to have family and friends visit you aboard during port calls (advance notice required, subject to availability)
  • Complimentary Premium Shore Excursions after 3 cruises
  • Complimentary 11th cruise

To Enroll


*Referral must be a new guest, booking a new stateroom. Loyalty benefits subject to change. Certain restrictions apply.

Meet Our Eagle Society Ambassadors

Meet Laura Sable and Bill Wiemuth, Eagle Society Ambassadors. Laura and Bill have sailed almost every American Cruise Lines itinerary over the past ten years and have impacted many thousands of guest experiences. Talented authors and musicians, they are deeply passionate about the history of each region we sail. They research, curate, and present an enrichment program that spans the entirety of the cruise. From afternoon lectures to evening piano bar, every detail of Laura and Bill’s presentation is tailored to your itinerary. They are a long-standing Eagle Society favorite, and we are honored to have them as ambassadors for the Eagle Society and American Cruise Lines.

American Cruise Lines is proud to create even more exclusive experiences with Laura and Bill by making them our hosts for each Eagle Society Cruise. These cruises are now fully exclusive to members and will feature special programming curated and presented by Laura and Bill. As your Eagle Society Ambassadors, you will also hear from them throughout the year with news and insights about their travels. They will share historical information about cruise regions, provide helpful tips, and special interviews.

Eagle Society Cruises

These exclusive cruises are an opportunity to catch up with fellow guests you have met on previous cruises to share new experiences and make new memories. Crew members often also recognize, or know by name, those who are part of our Eagle Society family.
