American Cruise Lines has unveiled details about its new Patriot Class coastal cruise ships set to launch in 2025, expanding its fleet to 21 vessels. The two new ships, American Patriot and American Pioneer, will offer expanded coastal itineraries with a capacity of 125 passengers each. These ships will feature private balconies in cabins ranging from 420 to 620 square feet, catering to solo travelers and larger suites.

The Patriot Class ships will be built at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Maryland, with traditional bow construction and full stabilization for enhanced coastal capabilities. They will include amenities such as a main lounge, restaurant, fitness center, and outdoor spaces like a Sky Lounge and sun deck. These ships are part of the company’s Project Blue initiative, which aims to construct a dozen coastal cruise ships.

American Cruise Lines, founded in 1972, has seen recent expansion with the introduction of Modern Riverboats and now the Patriot Class coastal ships. The company has operations along the Northeast and Southeast coasts, Mississippi River System, Pacific Northwest, and Alaska. Additionally, American Cruise Lines has agreed to acquire four river paddlewheel cruise ships from American Queen Voyages, with plans to be announced after the acquisition is completed under the supervision of the bankruptcy court.
