American Cruise Lines announces AMERICAN LEGEND - fourth new coastal catamaran in Project Blue series

CruiseAmerican Cruise Lines announced that construction has begun on AMERICAN LEGEND, the fourth new Coastal Cat in the company’s Project Blue series. First announced in January 2022, the Project Blue series is a set of 12 small ships designed to sail almost any domestic cruise itinerary.

The 100-guest AMERICAN LEGEND is built for coastal operation and features the innovative new hull design that is a hallmark of the series. All American’s new Coastal Cats are being built by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, MD.

The first three ships in the series, AMERICAN EAGLE, AMERICAN GLORY and AMERICAN LIBERTY are scheduled to begin sailing in the next twelve months. American Legend will begin cruising the U.S. in late 2024 and is the 19th new small ship in American’s fleet. 

AMERICAN LEGEND, like its sister ships, will feature many amenities including 56 staterooms and suites, each with a furnished private balcony. The nimble go-anywhere ship will also offer spacious lounges inside and out, an open-air top deck for spectacular views, and multiple dining venues. The ship’s unique hull form also allows for a wide activity platform at the stern, equipped with kayaks and a large tender for in-depth adventure directly from the ship.
