American Glory - Ship Facts
Here's the story on the American Glory. Built in 2002, the American Glory ship has developed some wonderful experience cruising to the east coast of the United States. Cruising at a speed of 13 knots, the American Glory ship often involves travel itineraries which can range from great eight day and seven night packages to grand 15 day and fourteen night expeditions.
As a smaller vessel, the American Glory is able to fully navigate narrower waters and thus, provide more intimate adventures, interactive services and top shore excursions in destinations which are not even attainable for larger cruises and vessels. Inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard after being designed by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Maryland, the American Glory ship proudly travels with the U.S. flag onboard.
American Glory - Itineraries and Destinations
With nine different cruises to choose from, American Cruise Lines provides some of the most extensive cruises of the Eastern United States. Most of these cruises last eight days and seven nights, with the exception of the "East Coast Inland Passage" cruise, which is designed for two weeks of luxury, fun and entertainment while sailing on the American Glory Ship.
This unique excursion will begin in Baltimore, Maryland and then travel to Norfolk, Virginia, Wilmington, North Carolina and popular South Carolina destinations like Myrtle Beach and Charleston. Site of where Francis Scott Key wrote the "The Star-Spangled Banner," Fort McHenry is a popular Baltimore destination. On the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, Norfolk is a combination of modernity and antiquity with its modern buildings and historic, restored homes.
Like Norfolk, Wilmington is known for its classic style, with its Georgian, Victorian and antebellum-style homes. Bustling with dazzling shops and theaters on Broadway on the Beach, Myrtle Beach remains a popular family vacation destination in the summer. With its many Revolutionary War battle spots, Charleston intrigues many historians while concluding the "East Coast Inland Passage" cruise.
The American Glory has 31 staterooms, 14 of which feature private balconies. All staterooms on the American Glory ship have an interior entrance and face outside while also containing private baths, a satellite television and large picture windows which show an unequaled view of the Atlantic Ocean. Staterooms can be found on three of the ship's four decks, on the Carolina Deck, the Lounge Deck and the Main Deck, and may be accessed by the ship's elevator.
American Glory - Activities and Onboard Experience
The American Glory ship provides a nice mixture of entertainment and education aboard. After a long day of exciting shore excursions, guests are encouraged to wind down with complimentary cocktails before dinner. Guests may also meet with fellow passengers in the many comfortable lounges and recount their amazing day.

Rather, American Cruise Lines understands that its smaller numbers of guests are more interested in learning about the cities and landmarks on the Eastern Coast. With this in mind, American Cruise Lines provides many guest lecturers, historians and naturalists to provide information and presentations on every destination. The American Glory ship utilizes its library, four lounges and amazing observation decks for such presentations. With a friendly, all-American crew, the American Glory ship provides a casual and informal atmosphere that is guaranteed to make each and every customer feel comfortable.

The American Glory features diverse menus and meals which highlight the specific area of visit on the East Coast. As an example, American guests may indulge in clam chowder while in New England or crab legs and lobster while in Maine. The American Glory ship stresses an informal dining atmosphere in its elegant dining room. American Cruise Lines asks it guests to not wear gowns or tuxedoes while eating. With a comfortable atmosphere already established, American Cruise urges its guests to sit wherever they please because every seat in the dining room contains a wonderful outside view.
