American Canadian Caribbean Line joins niche cruise group

The American Canadian Caribbean Line has become the 14th member of the Niche Cruise Marketing Alliance, the NCMA said.

ACCL has two ships, the Grande Mariner and the Grand Caribe, that each carry 100 passengers. The ships were commissioned in 1998 and 1997, respectively, the NCMA said. The line's sailings range from five to 15 days.

ACCL president Nancy Blount said that the 40-year-old cruise line offers guests access to places usually only accessible by private yacht, in an expedition-style format "based on our family vacations of the 1950's".

The line sails the Great Lakes; U.S. canals and rivers; the U.S. Intracoastal and bay waterways; the Northeast and Canadian Maritime Provinces; the Caribbean; and Central America.

The NCMA said it aims to educate travel agents on the value of concentrating on the sale of specialty cruise products with educational programs, seminar content and trade show exposure for its members and the niche industry segment.
