American Jazz is currently under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding, Salisbury MD and is on schedule to start cruising the Mississippi River in 2020.

American Cruise Lines has five modern riverboats planned for the series and now operates the newest and biggest fleet of American-built ships in the country.

This year, while work is underway on the new American Jazz, sistership American Song is sailing itineraries on the Columbia & Snake Rivers while American Harmony begins cruising the Mississippi in August.
