Dinner show debuts - Big success!
 
We had our first Delta Queen Dinner Show last Friday and it was a terrific success all the way around. We performed our "Delta Queen: A Musical Journey" show that I know many of you had a chance to see last season. It was such a joy for Bill and me to see the Orleans Room come back to life with music, applause, toe-tapping and laughter. It was truly heart-warming!

It was also wonderful to have some of our treasured steamboat friends there (you know who you are!) and also many new faces who are experiencing the magic of the Delta Queen's story for the first time. Not only was the dinner show successful, but the Texas Lounge has been hoppin' too. Great to have the boat feel lively again.

We hope that many more of you will join us before we depart Chattanooga on July 26.

Big steamboatin' hugs!
Laura

What an amazing experience to be sitting in the Orleans Room again, watching Laura and Bill's show again, last seen on the last night of the last DQ trip. Such a different state of my thought, from tears in October to joy and gratitude in June. What fun to be in the Texas Lounge again, enjoying the entertainment, just as so many times in the past. It felt so normal to sit with friends around a table in the Forward Cabin Lounge sharing stories. And it was fun to once again meet and visit with new people onboard, as well as see folks from previous trips that I didn't expect to be there. Being greeted by Bill, Laura, and Jennifer made any differences as a hotel seem totally unimportant. Can't wait to go back again!
