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.
