American Cruise Lines Announces Construction of a New Coastal Cruise Ship

American Cruise Lines announced today that it has begun construction on a new coastal cruise ship, yet to be named.

The ship is scheduled to begin cruising in spring of 2017.

With a capacity of 170 guests, this new, slightly larger ship will maintain the signature design and intimacy of the line’s current coastal cruise ships.

The new ship will be fully stabilized with Rolls-Royce stabilizers.

The new coastal cruise ship will feature the largest, most deluxe staterooms ever seen in this service, said a release.

Built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD, the new ship is scheduled for completion in January of 2017.
