Hi, Mark:
Thanks for your mention of the recent press/travel releases RE: AQ/EMPRESS OF THE NORTH. I received an early on business report on the same last week but hesitated to mention/post here. The financial $$ quotes not good. I did notice quotes from previous executives from DQ/AMBASSADORS etc. The proposal to "sell" the protected logo name DELTA QUEEN STEAMBOAT CO. for recognition, sales, promotion most interesting if/when another company shows interest. I noted not one word about the MISSISSIPPI QUEEN or present operation of the DELTA QUEEN in Tennessee.

Another report mentioned the plight of some European river cruise vessels along with the "dead flat" Alaska cruise market for 'blue water ships.'

Still cool to cold with sun up here on northern Lake Michigan. Heard the recent issue of the REFLECTOR has been mailed but won't see it up here possibly until last of July or August.

Well, what do I know?

From the shores up north.
