American Cruise Lines has unveiled the interior spaces of its new class of modern riverboats. The release marks the biggest change in the line’s interior design history.

American Melody will be the first boat to showcase the new design, but will be the 13th new ship in American’s rapidly expanding domestic fleet, and the second new riverboat debuting on the Mississippi for the line in 2021 (following American Jazz).

Studio DADO, a boutique firm based in Miami, Florida, designed the interiors of the new riverboats, integrating an elegant and refined aesthetic with American’s tradition for the spacious comfort found aboard all the ships in its fleet.

Studio DADO has a remarkable ability to blend the sophisticated and the modern. Their design vision closely aligned with our mission to provide sophisticated experiences on modern ships” said Charles B. Robertson, president and CEO of American Cruise Lines, in a press release statement. “We have been proud to partner with them in creating the new class of modern riverboats. American Melody and its sister ships are the biggest step forward in American Cruise Lines design history, but continue to offer the same great experience that has defined us since our founding.”
