Independence

The Independence was built in 2010. The ship is similar to the American Star and American Spirit, the size of the ship is larger, enabling the interior areas, including the staterooms and balconies to be even more spacious and deluxe. The Independence is also fully stabilized, with Rolls Royce stabilizers, allowing American Cruise Lines to reach even more fascinating destinations in smooth comfort.
