America is an overnight riverboat being built by American Cruise Lines (ACL) at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Maryland for overnight river cruising on the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, and Cumberland rivers in the United States. America replaced paddlewheeler American Pride on the Mississippi River in 2016 when that ship was repositioned the Columbia River. According to America Cruise lines, America will have "features never seen before on a riverboat". America is slightly larger than previous ACL riverboats with a 185 passenger capacity. The ship's hull was launched on August 7, 2015 and moved to a basin where construction of the upper decks and outfitting will take place.
