American Harmony will be the name of the second 184-passenger newbuild in American Cruise Lines' modern riverboat series. Construction began earlier this year on the sister of American Song, whose inaugural cruise on the Mississippi River is set for Oct. 6.

A video tour of the interiors of the modern riverboat series is available here.

Among the features are a four-deck atrium, lots of glass and a more than 900-square-foot grand suite.

Five of these modern riverboats are planned.

Last week one of American Cruise Lines' paddle-wheelers, America, kicked off its 2018 Mississippi season, departing from New Orleans. By October, the line will have three newly built vessels plying the Mississippi: two authentic paddle-wheelers and the first modern-style riverboat for US service.

When it debuts in 2019, American Harmony will take over on the Mississippi for American Song, which is repositioning to the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest.
