|American Cruise Lines is also planning to launch new river cruise vessels America (pictured) and Queen of the Mississippi.|
American Cruise Lines has announced that it has begun construction on a new, as-yet-unnamed coastal cruise ship, set to begin sailing in spring 2017.
The new ship will have a capacity of 170 guests, with staterooms spanning over 350 square feet. Guests will also be able to enjoy butler-delivered room service, private balconies and cuisine spotlighting locally sourced ingredients. There will also be an exercise spa, elevators to all decks, and ship-wide Internet.
The ship will also incorporate Rolls-Royce stabilizers for smooth sailing, as well as systems designed to adhere to high environmental and safety standards.
Built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD, the new ship is scheduled for completion in January 2017.
