American Cruise Lines Building a Second Paddlewheeler

American Cruise Lines
American Cruise Lines is at it again. Based on the overwhelming response to its first riverboat, they just announced they will be building another brand new riverboat.

Construction has already begun at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD, the same shipyard where its new 150-passenger Queen of the Mississippi is approaching completion. American Cruise Lines CEO Charles A. Robertson attributes the success of the company’s river cruise business to its “newer, low-density vessels, each built to meet the highest industry standards in comfort, safety and technology.”

American Cruise Lines latest riverboat will be slightly larger, however feature a similar capacity to that of the Queen of the Mississippi and will also boast the most spacious staterooms in the industry, entirely private balconies – all with sliding glass doors, a center atrium with a grand staircase, various lounges and numerous amenities including:

  • Fully-functioning authentic paddlewheel
  • 300+ square foot staterooms
  • Private balconies with sliding glass doors
  • Various unique lounges, libraries, and cafés
  • Fine hotel-style bathrooms
  • Room Service
  • Wi-Fi in all staterooms
  • Satellite TV and DVD player in all staterooms
  • Single sitting, open seating dining
  • Complimentary cocktail hour

More information about the yet-named ship will be provided in the near future.

    I would not put a sliding glass door on every single balcony or she might end up looking like a floating apartment building rather than a Victorian paddle wheeler.Just a suggestion that’s all.
