American Cruise Lines names new ship American Constellation

Cruise News – May 23, 2016

American Cruise Lines has announced that its upcoming ship, now under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding of Salisbury, Maryland, has been named American Constellation. The new coastal ship, currently nine weeks ahead of schedule will set sail in April 2017.

According to the cruise line, the name American Constellation was inspired by the long line of American ships named Constellation that have represented and honored the United States, and the link between USS Constellation and American Constellation is stronger than simply the moniker. The original U.S. Naval sailing frigate of 1797 and American Cruise Lines’ newest ship were both built in Maryland shipyards, and American Constellation will leave for its first cruise from Constellation Pier right next to where the retired USS Constellation is docked.

“We’re proud to continue our legacy of American-built ships, and are positive that American Constellation will raise the bar for all small ship cruising in the United States,” said Tim Beebe, Vice President of American Cruise Lines.

The 170-guest, ocean-capable ship will include large, well-appointed staterooms; furnished private balconies; room service; and Zodiacs and kayaks. Reservations for American Constellation’s inaugural season — which includes Chesapeake Bay, New England, Hudson River, and Historic South and Golden Isles itineraries — are now open.

Last May, the line launched a new 150-passenger paddlewheeler named American Eagle, its second ship on the Mississippi River.
