*Bill Judd's M/V GRAND MAJESTIC? Where?*
Steamboating colleagues,
Capt. Bill Judd asks "...where is the M/V GRAND MAJESTIC...christening tomorrow at Covington, KY. [?] What? What? Something I must have missed. I did go on line finding another GRAND MAJESTIC being christened for cruise runs to the Galapagos Islands for just 16 passengers but can this be the same one? Ummm...err...heck, I don't know. If there is a "story" somebody clue us all in. I'm so excited and trembling with anticipation here. Now I know what I don't know.

Had this upcoming as a reminder on Facebook.

I havenīt heard anything recently. The [URL="https://www.grandmajesticrivercruises.com/"]website[/URL] is more or less down. There was much more like cabin layouts and deckplans on the website.

You still can see quite a bit on [URL="https://www.facebook.com/grandmajesticrivercruises/"]Facebook[/URL].

Report?
 
The Facebook page says 2 friends went, but doesn't ID them. Hopefully they are on .org too and will report.

I think what that tis showing are the people who said they were going to go. Now that the event is over, FB changes it to say they went. Mine say that Alex Schucter and Phillip Johnson went. Maybe they'll chime in...

On September 23, 2017 I was enjoyign a steak at the Delta Queen Port of Call Restaurant in Kimmswick, MO. To my knowledge the M/V GRAND MAJESTIC was not in Covington for a christening, but rather still at her anchorage of many years near Memphis on McKellar Lake. Oddly enough, the USCG Maritime Information Exchange still shows this vessel in question to be registered under the name MISSISSIPPI QUEEN, the Certificate of Documentation having just been renewed this summer on June 26, 2017. I say odd, because as far as I know the ex DIAMOND LADY never operated commercially under the MQ name.
