Guilford, CT (PRWEB) July 14, 2015
American Cruise Lines announced today the name of its brand-new Mississippi paddlewheeler – America – currently under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD. The America is American built, American flagged, and American crewed, which is symbolic of the true all-American experience provided by American Cruise Lines.
America is being prepared to launch into the Wicomico River early next month, and will be moved to Chesapeake Shipbuilding’s East Outfitting Basin where the upper decks and outfitting will be completed. The America will be American Cruise Lines’ eighth ship and its second brand-new vessel this year. Scheduled to begin sailing the Mississippi River in early 2016, America will be the finest Mississippi paddlewheeler ever built, introducing features never before seen on a riverboat.
