With the largest fleet in the country, three distinct ship styles, and two modern riverboats cruising America’s legendary rivers, American Cruise Lines is well positioned as the leader in U.S. cruising.
By October of this year, the Line will have three newly built ships sailing the Mississippi River, including two authentic paddlewheelers and the first modern riverboat in U.S. history. America, the newest authentic paddlewheeler in the region, recently kicked-off the 2018 Mississippi River cruising season departing from New Orleans. On Oct. 6, 2018, American Song, the first modern U.S. riverboat, will make its inaugural debut on the Lower Mississippi River.
Construction recently began on American Harmony, the second ship in the modern series. Like her sister-ship, this new riverboat will showcase contemporary interior design elements and sweeping views throughout, including an awe-inspiring and 4-story glass atrium. At a capacity of 184 guests, both riverboats offer many spacious lounges, the largest staterooms in the industry each with a private furnished balcony, and all the finest amenities available in cruising. Also featured are Grand Suites measuring over 900 sq. ft., with separate sleeping and living areas, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and a private wraparound balcony.
When it debuts in 2019, American Harmony will take over the Mississippi River itineraries for American Song, which will be repositioning to the Columbia and Snake Rivers.
