Last year, American Cruise Lines outlined plans to visit Blue Hill several times between May and September 2017. While it now appears that Blue Hill will not be on the itinerary for this year, it seems likely that ACL (and its passengers) will visit us in future years.
Recognizing that there are a wide variety of views as to how these visits might affect our community, BHCD is considering the sponsorship of one or more “community forums.”
Potential Community Forum Topics
- Provide information about American Cruise Lines and its plans
- Exploration of potential opportunities for local merchants
- Forum for local residents to provide feedback and discuss any reservations they might have
American Cruise Lines
American Cruise Lines has a substantial fleet of ships, from large offshore cruise ships to smaller ships suitable for harbors along the Maine Coast.
Want to understand how ACL currently offers its “Maine Coast and Harbors Cruise“? Follow the link to the ACL web site to see current marketing, itinerary, etc.
They will launch a new ship, the “American Constellation,” for service along the Maine coast this year. Here’s a link to more information about the ship.
