There is one big difference, both recent operators had an established company behind the. The AMERICAN QUEEN had Hornblower and American Cruise Line had an established cruise operation on the East coast with established lines of credit and banking relationships. Of course, the AMERICAN QUEEN wouldn't be running today without the financing help from the City of Memphis.
