New Ship Ahead of Schedule

Postby HostDave » Fri Mar 11, 2016 8:41 pm

American Cruise Lines, known for its coastal and river vessels, is building an ocean-capable ship with an anticipated delivery in the first quarter of 2017.

The 170-passenger ship has roomy accommodations with balconies, single-seating dining with panoramic views and, new for the brand, Zodiacs and kayaks.

Staterooms have balconies and measure more than 350 square feet. Butler-delivered room service is a feature. Wider passageways facilitate handicapped accessibility throughout the ship.

American Cruise Lines cited significant advances in engineering and technology to make cruising faster and quieter, with more environmentally friendly systems for wastewater treatment and emissions. Advanced technology in communication, sound, safety, humidity and temperature control have been implemented, too.

The company said the newbuild is 11 weeks ahead of schedule at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland.

American Cruise Lines already has ocean-going experience through its international sister brand, Pearl Seas Cruises, which operates Pearl Mist.
