American Cruise Lines has accepted delivery of its latest riverboat, American Symphony, as scheduled in AUG after the vessel passed sea trials.

Currently on the way to New Orleans for the start of its inaugural season, American Symphony is the 5th riverboat in the Line’s new series and the 15th small ship built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding for American. The 175-passenger new boat will immediately join the company’s expanding Mississippi River fleet.

American Symphony’s first cruise is set to depart 27AUG from New Orleans, and American Cruise Lines plans to christen the riverboat during its inaugural cruise on 30AUG in Natchez, Mississippi.

“American Symphony is part of our ongoing commitment to leading the U.S. River Cruise market by introducing innovative small ships every year,” said Charles B. Robertson, President & CEO of American Cruise Lines. “Smaller is better on the rivers. We look forward to American Symphony’s first season on the Mississippi, as well as the introduction of sister ship American Serenade early next year.”

The American Symphony is a sister ship to American Melody, the company’s 2021 riverboat. Accommodating 175 guests, American Symphony features 5 decks and offers 100% private balcony staterooms, including suites and single rooms. American Symphony also showcases American’s opening bow and retractable gangway, as well as the 5th deck skywalk with an ellipse that cantilevers over the café below. American Symphony also offers lounges inside and out, a grand dining room, fitness center, and a wellness-yoga studio.
