Announcing Our Brand New Fleet Of 'Go Anywhere' Small American Ships.
American Cruise Lines is very pleased to announce our brand new Coastal Cats, a fleet of catamaran-inspired small ships, which will cruise 2023 season. These “go anywhere” ships, built and designed in the U.S. by Chesapeake Shipbuilding, meet American Cruise Lines’ mission for Cruising Close to Home®.
At a capacity of just 100 guests, the Coastal Cats and their corresponding itineraries will blend the best qualities of expedition adventure cruising with the refinement, luxury, stability, and land proximity of river cruising. Their proprietary hybrid catamaran design allows for smooth sailing along rivers, lakes, bays, and protected coastlines all across America. The streamlined design and environmentally friendly technology also make these the greenest small cruise ships in the U.S.
The first of 12 planned ships, American Eagle and American Glory, will debut in 2023 along the East Coast.
