The modern-style American Song is already there, along with two of American's paddlewheelers.
The 190-passenger American Harmony is operating on the Mississippi River this year. In 2021 it will be replaced by American Melody on the Mississippi, joining American Jazz. American Jazz is the third of the line’s modern-style riverboats, and due to enter service this August. American Melody is the fourth in the modern series.
In addition, American has two paddlewheelers on the Mississippi.
‘Our fleet has grown substantially in recent years, and with more ships under construction, we are not slowing down anytime soon,’ said Charles B. Robertson, president and CEO of the line. ‘The modern riverboats have been received wonderfully and we look forward to continued expansion on both the Columbia and the Mississippi River systems.’
Wide selection of itineraries
American offers a wide variety of cruises on the Columbia and Snake rivers. Five-, eight- and 11-day itineraries are available from early April through October from Portland, Oregon, and Clarkston, Washington. Each includes a pre-cruise hotel and transportation package from either departure city.
