Pearl Seas increases passenger capacity on its first vessel

Pearl Seas Cruises' first ship, to debut in August 2008, will be larger than it previously announced, with a passenger capacity of 210 instead of 165.

Pearl Seas, an offshoot of small-ship operator American Cruise Lines, contracted in late September 2006 with Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax, Nova Scotia, to build two luxury cruise ships ready for service in the summers of 2008 and 2009.

Pearl Seas said that the first ship, currently under construction, is "proceeding quickly and on schedule".

The vessel will have 109 staterooms and suites -- ranging in size from 240 to 460 square feet -- all with balconies.

The first ship will begin with international cruises in 2008 in the Canadian Maritimes, Newfoundland and New England and would reposition to the Caribbean later that year for Caribbean and Mexico Riviera itineraries.

The line's second ship also is slated to carry 210 passengers, as previously announced.
