American Cruise Lines announced today that it will launch two additional modern riverboats for the 2021 season. Construction is already underway on the new riverboats and will ramp up as American Jazz, the Line’s 3rd modern riverboat, is readied for its 2020 debut in New Orleans.
The cruise line currently operates a fleet of 12 small ships, and with construction underway on two of its newest riverboats as well as the American Jazz (the line’s third modern riverboat preparing for its 2020 debut in New Orleans), the company is gearing up to bolster its services and itineraries for the 2021 season.
“These new ships show our continued commitment to leading the Mississippi River cruise market,” said Charles B. Robertson, president and CEO of American Cruise Lines. “The American fleet is already unrivaled and the new riverboats will allow us to continue to roll out innovative amenities that enhance guest experiences.”
The two ships scheduled to launch next year will be sister ships to American Harmony and American Jazz, and promise to feature new and innovative design elements which the company will unveil later in the year.
While there is no word yet on when the upcoming ships are due to launch, American Jazz is scheduled to begin cruising the Mississippi River later this year.
