American Cruise Lines announced that it had begun construction on a new coastal cruise ship. The yet to be named ship is scheduled to start cruising in 2017 spring.

With a capacity of 170 passengers, this new, slightly larger ship will maintain the signature design and intimacy of the line’s current coastal cruise ships.

The new ship will be fully stabilized with Rolls-Royce stabilizers and will feature the largest, most deluxe staterooms ever seen in this service, said a release.

Built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury MD, the new ship is scheduled for completion in January of 2017.
