American Cruise Lines’ newest ship American Harmony departed on her first voyage last weekend.
The ship is the line’s second modern vessel and she is currently sailing an eight-day New Orleans roundtrip itinerary, exploring the lower Mississippi River.
Guests on this inaugural sailing are celebrating the historic voyage with a number of activities including visits to historical Mississippi ports like Oak Alley, Natchez, Vicksburg on guided tours, enjoy private concerts and more.
The new 190-passenger ship is slightly larger than the line’s flagship modern riverboat, American Song, which launched last year.
But it still has a similar design, including unique features like the opening bow, retractable gangway and a multi-story glass atrium, which allows plenty of natural light to shine in.
American Harmony has six decks (one more than American Song) and all-balcony staterooms throughout. In 2019/20 the ship will be sailing on Mississippi River itineraries that range from five to 22-days.
The line has three more modern riverboats in their future line up, with American Jazz and recently named American Melody set to debut on the Mississippi in 2020.
