American Serenade is the sixth ship in American Cruise Lines’ series of modern riverboats
American Cruise Lines has taken delivery of its newest river cruise ship, American Serenade, from Chesapeake Shipbuilding following successful sea trials.
The ship is the sixth in American’s series of modern riverboats, and the 18th small ship built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding for the river cruise line. It will be able to accommodate up to 180 guests and features five decks, which include lounges, a grand dining room, a café and a fitness centre. American Serenade also features American’s opening bow and retractable gangway design, as well as an open-air fifth deck skywalk.
“American Serenade shows our continued commitment to small ships for America’s rivers,” said Charles B. Robertson, president and CEO of American Cruise Lines. “She has the same spacious features as her five sister ships and a design package that wows everyone who boards.”
American Serenade will depart from New Orleans on 20 April for its first cruise, and will be christened during the voyage on 23 April while visiting Vidalia, Louisiana.
