American Cruise Line, the Connecticut-based, small-ship cruise company, announced that it will be introducing three new ships to its fleet by 2021.
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.
