American Cruise Lines has announced new developments for the 2023-24 season, including three new small ships, 10 new itineraries and 21 new ports. The company has published a brochure for the season ahead and all cruises are available to book online.
Next year, American will have 17 small ships exploring 35 states along 50-plus itineraries, including over 11 itineraries on the Mississippi River alone. All the company’s small ships and riverboats accommodate fewer than 200 guests and can be viewed via virtual tours.
Among the line’s three new small ships in 2023 are American Serenade, a 175-passenger sister ship to 2022’s American Symphony, coming to the Mississippi River in April; and two 109-passenger coastal ships, American Eagle and American Glory. The first of the 12-ship “Project Blue” fleet announced earlier this year, American Eagle and American Glory will sail East Coast itineraries beginning in August and October.
Additionally, the line is introducing 10 new itineraries in 2023/24, exploring 21 new ports of call from San Francisco to Sag Harbor and Key West. New cruises include the line’s first-ever California cruise, an eight-day round-trip San Francisco Bay cruise which highlights Napa and wine country; a new 15-day “National Parks & Legendary Rivers” itinerary which includes an eight-day cruise on the Columbia and Snake Rivers and a seven-day exploration through three national parks—Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton; and an eight-day Tennessee rivers cruise between Chattanooga and Nashville. In 2024, American will offer new cruises in Florida and the Keys besides new itineraries in coastal New England and Maine.
Cruise pricing for 2023/24 includes port charges and fees, as well as tips and gratuities. All American’s Mississippi River, Columbia and Snake rivers, and Alaska cruises (from Juneau) include complimentary pre-cruise hotel stays. All the line’s river and coastal cruises also offer domestic flat-rate airfare.
