The maiden voyage of ACL-American Cruise Lines' inaugural 100-passenger catamaran, named American Eagle, commenced from the port of Boston MA.

This vessel marks the beginning of a series of twelve ships that American Cruise Lines has commissioned for conducting coastal voyages centered around the USA. Constructed by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury Maryland, ACL's American Eagle has 5 decks and 56 passenger staterooms.

On August 14th, the American Eagle embarked on her first journey, a 7-day Cape Codder cruise featuring stops at Martha's Vineyard, Newport in Rhode Island, and New Bedford in Massachusetts. The official christening ceremony for the ship is scheduled to take place at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy on August 16th. The ship's itinerary will cover the East Coast, encompassing routes in Maine before navigating southward along the coastline, spanning from South Carolina to Florida.

American Eagle's upcoming sistership American Glory is slated to debut in November. She will offer a 10-day American Revolution cruise out of Baltimore.
