Exploritasformally known as Elderhostel has two programs involving the Delta Queen. One, the participants just visit her and tour her, finding out about Steamboating as a part of the Chattanooga experience. On the other, the participants stay for the entire time on board. The idea here is to learn about the life and times of the Delta Queen. Do we have stuff on board to explain why she is not a Hotel and not cruising the rivers? It seems that this would be a great chance to get the message out, perhaps to newbies on the river. for those of you not familar with these programs, these were originally for active seniors who wanted to continue learning. They have just dropped the age recently for the new name.
