Default new QUEEN OF MISSISSIPPI brochure

There is a new river cruises brochure available online for the QoM and QoW. A couple of tidbits:

Someday, they値l build the biggest steamboat the world has ever
known; and she値l be long, white and gleaming in the sunshine.
And that one shall be called the Queen of the Mississippi.
柚ark Twain
Matthew, you had asked a question about the naming of this boat. Here is the company's reasoning. Two little problems with it however: 1) she's not the biggest and 2) she's not a steamboat... but who cares about these little details today?

There's a pix of their riverlorian, one Toots Maloy. Word was she had retired. Word was wrong!

The itinerary for a 7 day trip between St. Louis and St. Paul includes stops in: Hannibal, Burlington, Davenport, Dubuque, LaCrosse, Winona and Redwing... there will be precious little cruising in daylight on those cruises....but again, who cares about cruising on a cruise anyway?

I'm sure glad I got my DELTA QUEEN trips in back when the river was the thing, not the shore stops, cuisine, staterooms just like home, fluffy bathrobes, private balconies, etc. etc.!
