American Doubles Maine Cruise Berths

After seeing increased demand for its Maine coastal cruises this year, American Cruise Lines plans to position its newest vessel, the 100-passenger American Star in Maine for summer 2007. That will double the number of berths available for coastal Maine voyages. The American Star is under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD, and will enter service in June of next year. This year, the line used the 49-passenger American Glory on Maine cruises. Visit [www.americancruiselines.com].
