Edgartown is expected to see more cruise ship activity this summer.

Harbor master Charlie Blair told the town selectmen Tuesday that American Cruise Lines is planning a schedule that runs from May 21 through Sept. 11, stopping in Edgartown two or three times each month as part of seven and ten-day cruises that originate in Boston and Providence. The vessel, American Constellation, is new, and holds up to 170 passengers.

The proposal mirrors one pitched by American Cruise Lines in Edgartown three summers ago.

“They like Edgartown,” the harbor master said. “It’s absolutely no strain, they come on a Friday night at 8 p.m., and they leave on Saturday at 5 p.m.”

`Mr. Blair said he will ask the cruise ships to anchor a bit further outside of the harbor than usual, to accommodate smaller vessel traffic. The cruise ship has its own launch to ferry to shore as many as 44 passengers at a time.

Also Monday, selectmen agreed to renew a liquor license for the Chappaquiddick Beach Club.
