American Cruise Lines recently confirmed that American Jazz has passed sea trials and is all set to debut in United States. Post the successful trials, American accepted delivery of the riverboat from Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury. The 190-passenger American Jazz is the latest addition in an acclaimed series of five new modern riverboats and will be added to the fleet on the Mississippi River.
The American Jazz successfully underwent speed trials and an endurance run last week with the United States Coast Guard aboard and was thoroughly tested in all areas of safety and maneuverability. The new ship possesses the latest safety equipment, as well as the most environmentally friendly technology in the industry. American Jazz is the third modern riverboat for American, following the successful launches of American Harmony in 2019, and American Song in 2018.
Charles B. Robertson, Chief Executive, American Cruise Lines said in a statement that American Jazz as well as the riverboats under construction demonstrate the brand’s commitment to leading the United States river cruise market by adding new small ships each year. He shared that outlook for 2021 is tremendous and the company is looking forward to American Jazz’s first full season on the Mississippi, as well as the introduction of American Melody, the next new ship to follow in the riverboat series.
