'American Song' is expected to make its inaugural cruise October 6, 2018 on the Mississippi River from New Orleans, during the city’s Tri-centennial year.


American Song’s sister ship, American Harmony, the 2nd modern riverboat in the series, is currently five and a half weeks ahead of schedule and will be launched later this fall.

American Harmony will go into service in the spring of 2019 on the Mississippi River where it will join two of American’s Victorian-style paddlewheelers, Queen of the Mississippi and America.

When it debuts this October 2018, American Song will cruise the Line’s Lower Mississippi River itineraries for the remainder of the year and reposition to the West Coast on the Columbia & Snake Rivers in 2019.

American Song and American Harmony are both designed and built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland.
