American Song Becomes US’ First Modern Riverboat

American Cruise Lines announced that, what it describes as that the first modern riverboat in US history, is nearly complete.

American Song, under its own power, recently moved from the East Outfitting Basin at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland, to the yard’s outfitting bulkhead for the final outfitting touches.

American Song is set to make its historic inaugural cruise from October 06 on the Mississippi River from New Orleans during the city’s tri-centennial year.

American Songs sister ship, American Harmony, the second modern riverboat in the series, is currently five and a half weeks ahead of schedule and will be launched later this autumn.

American Harmony will go into service in the spring of 2019 on the Mississippi River where it will join two of American’s Victorian-style paddlewheelers, Queen of the Mississippi and America.
