The line known for its classic paddlewheel riverboats is launching a second modern vessel, American Harmony, on the Mississippi River.
American Harmony will depart on her inaugural Mississippi River cruise from New Orleans on August 17, on the line’s popular eight-day New Orleans Roundtrip itinerary.
The ship will be sailing on itineraries that range from five to 22-days for 2019 and 2020.
The new 190-passenger ship is slightly larger than the line’s flagship modern riverboat, American Song, which was introduced last year. But it still has a similar design, including unique features like the opening bow, retractable gangway and a multi-story glass atrium.
American Harmony has six decks (one more than American Song) and all-balcony staterooms throughout. On Harmony, the Veranda Suite is all located on the 5th deck, rather than spread across decks two to four on Song.
Harmony is second of five in American Cruise Lines’ new modern riverboat series and the third riverboat, American Jazz, is set to debut on the Mississippi in 2020.
In 2020, American Cruise Lines will have two modern riverboats and two Victorian-style paddlewheelers operating on the Mississippi River.
