Default Detroit Princess and another unknown boat

Hi all,

A friend of mine is touring the US on a business trip. He posted some photos on a German cruise board

http://cruise-chat.com/eve/forums?a=...623#6101048623

I wasnīt able to identify the boat on the first photo. Does anyone know this boat? He said heīs not sure about the name "River Queen" or "Ste. Clair(e)". The photo was taken in the Detroit area.

The next two photos are showing the Detroit Princess

and my first thought was: this boat is looking like the Columbia Queen! And obviously indeed thatīs a sister boat to the Columbia Queen. The Detroit Princess was built by Leevac Shipyard, Jennings/LA, in 1993 for Harrahīs and did run on Lake Charles as a casino boat. We all know that the CQ started her life in the same shipyard in 2000 and was supposed to serve as a casino boat until AMCV bought the not completed boat.
