A second new ship in two months is being readied for launch by American Cruise Lines.

American Melody follows the line taking delivery of sister ship American Jazz.

The forward section of American Melody was moved ahead of being  joined to the aft section and launched into the Wicomico River in Maryland.

The fourth ship in American Cruise Lines’ new riverboat series is scheduled for delivery to the Mississippi River next year.

Details of the new ship’s interior concept or capacity are being kept under wraps until closer to launch.

American Cruise Lines sails in more than 30 states around the US with a fleet of 14 vessels, each accommodating fewer than 190 passengers.
