American Cruise Lines has announced that the 2021 summer season of coastal New England cruises is underway. American Constitution, one of the Line’s new 175-passenger small ships, began operating American’s brand new 8-Day Cape Codder Cruises in May, and made its first exclusive visit to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy over Memorial Day weekend. The newest of American’s New England summer cruise itineraries sails roundtrip from Boston, and visits: Gloucester, Plymouth, Martha’s Vineyard, Woods Hole, New Bedford, and Provincetown, MA. American Cruise Lines has several more New England itineraries beginning this week and will operate 3 spacious small ships throughout the region through September.
American’s 2021 New England itineraries include: 11-Day Grand New England Cruises (roundtrip from Boston, MA), 8-Day New England Islands Cruises (roundtrip from Providence, RI), 8-Day Maine Coast and Harbors Cruises (roundtrip from Portland, ME), and the aforementioned new 8-Day Cape Codder Cruises (roundtrip from Boston, MA).
Calling on over 20 New England ports more than 150 times from May through September, American’s cruises dock in the heart of each destination and offer small-group explorations of the historic quaint towns and villages that have made New England famous for centuries. Cruises include guided shore tours as well as daily lectures, presentations, and entertainment on board. Summer sailings also offer all-inclusive cuisine, highlighting New England’s famous Yankee-fare from authentic Lobsterbakes to Clam Chowders and Maine Blueberry pies.
While aboard American’s spacious small ships, guests will visit charming island villages on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, to famous port cities like Newport with its infamous “Avenue of the Mansions.” Guests can hike the scenic mountain tops of Acadia National Park or relax on board the ships’ private balconies, enjoying picturesque views of the region’s coastal rugged beauty. Guests will discover New England’s rich maritime history and stroll along its pristine beaches; explore historic neighborhoods lined with cobblestone streets and shingled cottages; and visit museums, galleries, and local shops all along the way.
American’s coastal cruises operate in the same personalized style as the Line’s river cruises; aboard new 100-190 passenger small ships built here in the U.S.A. which follow 100% domestic U.S. itineraries and always cruise within sight of land.

Currently, the Line has 3 small ships operating along the East Coast, 8 riverboats operating on the Mississippi and Columbia & Snake Rivers, and 2 small ships on the West Coast, with Alaska cruises beginning in June.
