Travelers who want to cruise the waters of New England in style have a great new option courtesy of American Cruise Lines.

The American Constellation was launched off of Salisbury, Maryland at Chesapeake Shipbuilding, who is completing the construction. The upper decks of the ship still need to be installed before beginning cruises, which are scheduled for the spring of 2017.

When the ship is completed, American Cruise Lines’ fleet will reach nine total ships. The award-winning company currently offers more than 35 total itineraries that range from four to 21 nights around the United States. They service stops around the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, the Southeast and the Mississippi River as well as the New England market they’re expanding.
