June 11, 2019 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

American Cruise Lines announced that at 5:00 am this morning, that its 2nd new modern riverboat, American Harmony, moved under its own power to the shipyard’s outfitting pier for final touches. American Harmony was successfully launched at Chesapeake Shipbuilding this past November, 2018, and is well ahead of schedule for its August 17, 2019 inaugural cruise on the Mississippi River.

American Harmony is the 2nd of 5 new ships in American’s revolutionary new modern riverboat series. The 1st ship,American Song, was the first modern riverboat in U.S. history and went into service last fall. American Harmony was launched exactly one year to the day of its sister ship American Song. Construction on American Jazz, the 3rd ship in the modern riverboat series, is well underway and will be launched in about 3 months at Chesapeake Shipbuilding.

American Harmony will have the same sophisticated modern design and state-of-the-art technical features as the series flagship, American Song, including the same unique opening bow and retractable gangway. American Harmony has 10 more deluxe suites on its upper deck and features huge all-outward facing staterooms, all with private furnished balconies. Like American SongAmerican Harmony also has a gorgeous multi-story glass atrium in the center of the ship.

Chesapeake Shipbuilding has a long history of designing and building innovative new ships for American Cruise Lines. In addition to American Harmony, American Cruise Lines’ 3rd modern riverboat, American Jazz, is coming in 2020, as well as more new ships in 2021 and 2022.
