Lauching of American Cruise Lines Sternwheeler Queen of Mississippi

The launching of American Cruise Lines™ brand new sternwheeler, Queen of the Mississippi, went picture perfect and nine weeks ahead of schedule at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Maryland on Sunday, July 17th.

The launching comes just a few weeks after the joining of the two hull sections, weighing almost 500 tons apiece. With the completion of the fourth and fifth decks up next, Queen of the Mississippi™s superstructure will come together quickly, giving shape to the first riverboat built for the Mississippi in nearly twenty years, and the grandest ever!
