American Cruise Lines, Inc. is a small-ship cruise line with its headquarters in Guilford, Connecticut, United States. The line operates six small ships along the Eastern Seaboard, Western Seaboard (including Alaska and rivers of the United States. American Cruise Lines was incorporated in 1991. The 49-passenger American Eagle launched in 2000 and was followed in 2002 by the same-sized American Glory. The American Spirit was launched in 2005 and held twice as many passengers. A fourth ship, American Star, was launched in 2007. In 2010 the 104 passenger Independence, built with a wider beam and active wing stabilizers, was launched. The wider beam allows for larger staterooms, public spaces and private balconies. In 2010, American Cruise Lines acquired an authentic paddlewheel cruise ship, Queen of the West, renovating it by decreasing the capacity to 120, making for a larger more comfortable dining room, lounges and decks.
