American Cruise Lines said it has named its fourth modern riverboat the American Melody.
“The American Melody will showcase all the beautiful modern styling and state-of-the-art technical features synonymous with American’s groundbreaking series. The fourth ship in American’s exciting five-ship series will have the distinctive opening bow and retractable gangway featured on the first three ships in the series—American Song, American Harmony, and American Jazz,” the organisation stated, in an announcement.
The American Melody is preparing to start cruising in late 2020. American Cruise Lines has a long-standing association with Chesapeake Shipbuilding, in Salisbury, MD, where American’s armada of new voyage ships, modern riverboats, and Victorian-style paddlewheelers are assembled.
