Short description:

The new coastal river boat set sail in April 2017. The "American Constellation" name was inspired by the numerous American ships named "Constellation" which have honored the United States. The original US Naval sailing frigate of 1797, USS Constellation, and the newest ship of American Cruise Lines were both built in Maryland shipyards.American Cruise Lines, known for its coastal and river vessels, is building an ocean-capable ship with an anticipated delivery in the first quarter of 2017.The 170-passenger ship has roomy accommodations with balconies, single-seating dining with panoramic views and, new for the brand, Zodiacs and kayaks.Staterooms have balconies and measure more than 32,5 m2. Butler-delivered room service is a feature. Wider passageways facilitate handicapped accessibility throughout the ship.American Cruise Lines cited significant advances in engineering and technology to make cruising faster and quieter, with more environmentally friendly systems for wastewater treatment and emissions. Advanced technology in communication, sound, safety, humidity and temperature control have been implemented, too. The ocean-capable vessel, with full-active wind stabilisation, features well-appointed staterooms, spacious lounges, furnished balconies, observation decks, private balconies and other additional features.
