American Spirit

Ship Overview

The 90 guest American Spirit offers a comfortable exploration along Puget Sound & the San Juan Islands. Its small size allows for travel through the many narrow rivers and shallow bays of the Pacific Northwest. Built in 2005, the ship has all the comforts of home and a casual atmosphere on board. Spacious lounges are gathering points for cocktails, entertainment, or an afternoon lecture with panoramic views of the passing scenery, and the dining room offers a scrumptious regional menu that changes daily. Fellow travelers become fast friends as we explore U.S. rivers and waterways on American Spirit. 

Staterooms follow the ship’s congenial nature. With lightly colored interior d├ęcor and a generous amount of space, each room is a comfortable sanctuary. Standard rooms begin at over 250 square feet. Second and third deck rooms feature a private balcony, while suites offer unprecedented space for this class of ship. 

American Spirit is stabilized and also features a sun deck, putting green, and library. The ship is 220 feet long and was built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD.
