About The Ship

 

American Song

The American River Cruise Revolution is here with American Song, the flagship in the new series of contemporary riverboats from American Cruise Lines. As the first of its kind ever in the U.S., American Song introduces many pioneering innovations to America’s waters.

With a capacity of just 180 guests, this new ship has the modern design features and contemporary styling that today’s traveler has come to expect. Featured are lounges soaring 40 feet above the water with triple the glass of other riverboats, offering astounding views. American Song also showcases a four-story glass-enclosed atrium with a large domed skylight, which serves as the central gathering point for the entire ship.

The new suite design allows for unprecedented comfort while traveling, beginning with the Owner’s Suite, featuring 600 square feet of private space. These spacious suites include two glass walls and a wraparound private balcony. Complimentary room service during select mealtimes is available for every stateroom, but the Grand Suites offer ample space to host small cocktail parties or private dinner events.
