.American Cruise Lines reports that, at 5:00 a.m. this morning, its second new modern riverboat, American Harmony, moved under its own power to the shipyard’s outfitting pier for final touches.
American Harmony was successfully launched at Chesapeake Shipbuilding this past November, and is well ahead of schedule for its August 17, 2019 inaugural cruise on the Mississippi River.
American Harmony is the second of five new ships in the new modern riverboat series. The first, American Song, went into service last fall. Construction on American Jazz, the third ship in the modern riverboat series, is well underway and will be launched in about three months at Chesapeake Shipbuilding.
American Harmony will have the same sophisticated modern design and technical features as American Song, including the same unique opening bow and retractable gangway. American Harmony, however, has ten more deluxe suites on its upper deck and features large all-outward facing staterooms, all with private furnished balconies.
Like American Song, American Harmony also has a multi-story glass atrium in the center of the ship.
