SHIP

American Jazz

American Jazz will begin her inaugural season on the Mississippi in the fall of 2020. Like her sister ships, American Jazz has the contemporary styling and modern amenities that make the river cruising more attractive and comfortable than ever before. Featured will be a gorgeous five-story glass atrium, private balconies in all of its spacious staterooms, and spectacular views from everywhere on the ship. American Jazz will also feature the same advanced opening bow and retractable gangway. Ranging from 250 to 800 square feet, the staterooms aboard American Jazz are the finest on any cruise ship. Guests will enjoy ample living space, full-size bathrooms, plush seating, and the ideal place to unwind after an enriching day of discovery. The brand new Grand Suites also include two glass walls and a wraparound private balcony, plenty of space to host small cocktail parties, or private dinner events.
