American Constitution: Navigating rivers along East Coast
The 175-passenger river ship American Constitution from American Cruise Lines launched in spring 2018. She's a twin sister of American Constellation, which launched in May 2017 with similar itineraries in the Northeast and Southeast.
American Constitution was designed to navigate the inland waterways of the East Coast. The ship will feature modern décor and amenities, modern technologies, the largest staterooms in the industry and private balconies in every room that offer spectacular views of the passing landscapes.
American Constitution brings guests to beautiful coastal and river ports the larger ships can't access. In the intimate atmosphere on board, passengers will find spacious lounges, observation decks and well-lit, spacious dining venues for inside and outside dining.
