The sight of American Cruise Lines ships will be a familiar one for Sinclair Inlet residents once again this summer.
According to the Port of Bremerton, ACL cruise ships will return to the Bremerton Marina this year. Their ships visited multiple times in 2019 and 2021 on their Puget Sound cruises.
Bremerton is one of the stops the ship will make on its 11-day Grand Puget Sound cruise. ACL’s American Constellation will visit Bremerton six times this year on April 16, May 4 and 6, Sept. 21 and 23, and Oct. 11. The vessel will arrive in the afternoon each sailing and stay docked for about 24 hours to allow passengers to explore the waterfront and city.
The ship, which accommodates 175 guests, was inaugurated in 2017 and designed to navigate the inland waterways of the Pacific Northwest, said Jim Rothlin, Port of Bremerton’s CEO.
“We look forward every year to the return of the American Constellation to our Bremerton Marina,” Rothlin said. “It’s a delight to share the unique beauty of the Puget Sound and the Kitsap community to visitors from all over the world.”
