Default American Queen Cruise 8/4 - 8/10/07

Hi! We just returned from our 35th cruise on the AQ from St. Louis to Cincinnati. Whew!! A hot time was had by all. Temps reached 100 degrees at every port! Some new additions were the return of lobster and crab legs. Hmmm Good! We had prime rib for the Captains dinner. My husband had an end cut to die for!!!
Also the Social Hosts have returned. Two were on board to dance with the ladies. The Senior Host offered basic dance instruction between dance sets.
Again Phill Westbrook (his music library is endless), Traci Vaughn & Jim Braet (awesome entertainers), Bob Schad (plays a mean banjo), and Steve Spracklen (Master of Ragtime) had toes tappen all week throughout the boat. Great entertainment!
What a joy to see and hear Bobby Durham and His American Queen Quartet. Bobby has put together an easy listening blend of all types of music with his quartet. They make a great sound. He was heading for the DQ from Cincinnati.
Another wonderful surprise for us was spending an evening with Mark Twain, Lewis Hankins! Glad he is back. His show was awesome. During the show he asked if anyone had any questions. That man truly has the spirit of Mark Twain in him. He could answer all the questions with such conviction you would think Mark Twain was there answering them. Lewis Hankins is a keeper!
We were sadden to see in Steamboats.org that the MQ will not be out yet next year. While they got her down, might as well fix her up top to bottom. We are now anticipating our maybe final (we hope not) cruise on the Delta Queen next year.
