American Cruise Lines’ new riverboat, American Harmony, arrived in New Orleans this week ahead of its August 17 debut on the Mississippi River.
This ship is the first in a series of five modern riverboats planned to set sail for ACL. It will offer itineraries ranging from seven to 21-night long.
American Cruise Lines’ modern riverboats are the first major style departure from the classic paddlewheel riverboats that have been plying the Mississippi since the early 1800s.
In addition to the new American Harmony, which is the line’s third Mississippi riverboat and 11th new ship, American Cruise Lines introduced their modern series flagship, American Song on the Mississippi in 2018, and plans to introduce their 3rd modern riverboat, American Jazz, on the Mississippi in 2020.
