American Cruise Lines today announced it will be offering its popular lobster theme on all 2014 Maine Coast cruises. The eight-day theme cruise features lobster cuisine, a lobster boat excursion, a traditional lobsterbake in Rockland, and more. Offered on the 49-passenger American Glory and 104-passenger Independence, cruises begin in early June and sail through September. Guests will enjoy freshly prepared lobster and unique activities, while enjoying a personalized cruise experience along the coast of Maine. Highlights of the lobster-themed cruise include:
-Lobster Dishes – Our experienced chefs take lobster seriously. They have created unique menus which feature lobster throughout the cruise. The typical menu includes stuffed lobster tail, whole steamed lobster, lobster pot pie, lobster risotto, lobster omelets, and even lobster ice cream.
-Lobster Boat Excursion – Guests have the opportunity to board an actual lobster boat for an authentic “daily catch” experience while enjoying gorgeous views of the coast of Maine. While catching lobsters, they’ll also learn about the lifestyle of Maine lobsterman.
-Lobster Bake – The highlight of the cruise is American Cruise Lines’ signature New England Lobster bake on the shore of the Penobscot Bay. Fresh lobster, clams, and corn are all steamed in kelp over hot coals. The feast is unlike any other, and also features live music and stunning views of the Rockland Harbor.
“We decided to extend this theme to all of our Maine Coast sailings due to its popularity among guests,” said Timothy Beebe, Vice President of American Cruise Lines. “Lobster is Maine’s specialty and people travel from all over the country to experience it. We look forward to allowing even more guests to enjoy the New England tradition and delicacy aboard this theme cruise.”

They will visit the charming village of Belfast, famous for its beautiful Greek revival architecture, the Granite Mountains of Acadia National Park, and view the classic schooners in Camden harbor.
