American Cruise Lines announces American Jazz as the name of the third new ship in their revolutionary modern riverboat series. American Jazz will feature the same advanced opening bow and retractable gangway seen on American Song and American Harmony. All of the new modern riverboats feature gorgeous multi-story glass atriums, huge private balcony cabins, and 3 times the glass of any other riverboats, ensuring spectacular views from everywhere on the ship. American Jazz is already under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding and is on schedule to begin cruising the Mississippi in 2020.
