Pearl Seas Cruises Signs Contracts to Build New Luxury Cruise Ships

Guilford, CT. USA; Pearl Seas Cruises announced today that they have signed contracts with Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax, Nova Scotia to build two new luxury passenger ships for world service. Pearl Seas Cruises is an offshore affiliate of American Cruise Lines, Inc., which has the newest fleet of cruise ships in the world. These new ships will carry 165 and 210 passengers. The first ship is scheduled to begin cruise service in July 2008 and the second in June 2009. The first ship will begin with international cruises in the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland and New England, and followed later in the year with itineraries in the Caribbean.

Pearl Seas Cruises’ name connotes high regard for beauty and excitement as well as capturing the romance of the exceptionally, precious jewel, from the sea. The ships have been designed for the luxury market, redefining smaller, more intimate luxury ships that can slip into exotic ports off the beaten path as well as larger more well known ports of call.

Pearl Seas Cruises’ ships have innovative modern designs including state of the art technologies and luxury amenities. The ships will include a spa, a spacious dining salon to seat all passengers at one time with surrounding windows for panoramic views, several lounges, and a well-stocked library. The ships’ design will also include an elevator to all decks, and three spacious observations decks. The ship will be fully stabilized, and meet the newest and most stringent safety and environmental standards.

The new ships’ oversized suites (over 240 square feet) will all feature private balconies with large opening picture windows offering spectacular views. Every stateroom will be fitted with flat-screen satellite TV and DVD player, individual climate control, Internet access and many other modern conveniences and amenities expected by the discerning traveler. The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting, much like that of a fine private club.

The Ships will be powered by Caterpillar diesel engines for propulsion and generators and will be stabilized by Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine active wing Stabilizer units.

These new ships will be Marshall Islands flagged.
