American Melody being launched into the Wicomico River at Chesapeake Shipbuilding
Chesapeake Shipbuilding has successfully launched American Cruise Lines’ new American Melody at its yard in Salisbury, Maryland.
American Melody, which is the fourth newbuild in the cruise line’s modern riverboat series, will undergo final outfitting at Chesapeake’s yard ahead of her delivery and inaugural Mississippi River season in summer 2021.
Featuring interiors designed by Studio DADO, American Melody will have five decks, a multi-storey glass atrium at the centre, all-balcony suites and staterooms, and America Cruise Line’s patented opening bow and retractable gangway. In addition, the vessel will have an outdoor café, multiple sky-lit lounges, a dining room with panoramic windows, a library, games room, chart room, fitness room and yoga studio, and several open-air and shaded sundecks.
