1st Modern Riverboat in the U.S.A., American Song, Honored on Time’s 2019 World’s Greatest Places List

August 29, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

American Cruise Lines’ 1st modern riverboat, American Song, was selected for Time magazine’s 2019 World’s Greatest Places list.

Time’s annual list, just announced last week, “highlights 100 destinations around the world that are breaking new ground, leading industry trends and offering visitors an extraordinary experience,” according to Time’s press release. The coveted annual list was selected by Time’s correspondents around the world, with each selection based on “quality, originality, innovation and influence.” American Song certainly checks all those boxes, as it is the first modern riverboat in U.S. history. The remarkable small ship is also the first in American’s groundbreaking series of 5 modern riverboats (the 2nd series ship, American Harmony just debuted on the Mississippi last week and the 3rd & 4th new ships are expected in 2020).

American Song is the country’s first major style departure from the classic paddlewheel riverboats that have been plying U.S. rivers since the early 1800s. Showcasing gorgeous interior design elements, from a four-story glass atrium to a patent-pending opening bow and retractable gangway, American Songinspires. American Song has the largest staterooms in the industry, private furnished balconies, full-size bathrooms and the finest amenities available—it has both elevated and redefined the standard for river cruising in the U.S.

American Song was further honored last week as Time highlighted just a handful of nominees from their 2019 list on the Today Show Friday morning, August 23rd. The 184-passenger American Song sails the Columbia & Snake Rivers for American along carefully curated itineraries including exceptional Lewis & Clark themed cruises. America’s 1st modern riverboat will continue to cruise the Columbia & Snake Rivers for the remainder of 2019 and again in 2020.

American Cruise Lines is honored to have its beautiful new ship included on Time’s noteworthy list of amazing places throughout the world.  Time’s 2019 World’s Greatest Places list can be seen both online and in the September 3rd issue of the magazine on sale now.
