American Cruise Lines announced today that Captain Andrew White has joined the company as Director of Marine Operations.

Captain White joins American Cruise Lines after his recent retirement from twenty-seven years of service in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Thirteen of those years were spent on Coast Guard cutters on both the East and West Coasts of the United States, as well as the Caribbean Sea.  His last Coast Guard shipboard command was the 378-foot cutter GALLATIN out of Charleston, SC.

His last assignment for the Coast Guard was as Chief of Current Operations for Atlantic Area, running operations from the Rocky Mountains to the Persian Gulf, including direct oversight of the Coast Guard’s East Coast cutter fleet.

Captain White is a graduate of both the United States Coast Guard Academy of New London, CT, and the U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College.
