American Cruise Lines acquires the American Queen and others



American Queen
American Cruise Lines is acquiring the four river cruise vessels that formerly sailed for American Queen Voyages, which ceased operations.
An industry magazine, Seatrade Cruise News, reports that ACL has purchased the vehicles from its Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The purchase includes not only the American Queen, the largest paddlewheel steamboat ever built, but the American Duchess, the American Countess and the American Empress.

The Hornblower Group declared bankruptcy earlier this year and ceased all operations.

“American Cruise Lines is pleased to be the successful bidder for AQV’s river vessels,” the company said in a statement to Seatrade Cruise News. “We look forward to announcing additional details after this portion of the Hornblower Holdings bankruptcy process concludes.

The sale will have to be approved by the bankruptcy court.
