American Cruise Lines announced today that 15% of the cabins on board its new river paddle wheeler will be designed for solo travel.
The river cruise line will offer cabins that are around 200 square feet – which is nearly double from what solo passengers find on ocean-going cruise ships such as the Norwegian Epic (the only major cruise-line to offer solo-traveler cabins).
The new vessel is called the Queen of the Mississippi and will be the newest overnight passenger paddle-wheeler on the river in over 20 years. It is schedule to be debut August 11th.
