Richard, I do have an answer to two of your questions. The Natchez has never allowed passengers to the roof of the Texas Deck, where the calliope is located. The boat was never designed with this in mind. So, this wasn't just a Tall Stacks thing, but an everyday thing. Unfortunately, there is no way to see the calliope while on the boat. The other question in regards to access to the boats probably falls into the category of a confused ticket seller. The only way for normal people to gain access to the boats was to purchase a cruise ticket. There was no general admission ticket or in-dock tour ticket for any boat. At the 2003 event, there was a morning in-dock tour ticket, but they discontinued it for 2006. If you tried to access the boat at a different time than you were booked for, then no wonder you were hassled. One ticket for one cruise.
