Default I missed the video the first time

I forgot to click on the included video the first time I read the article. Its a nice 3:24 clip of scenes on the NATCHEZ:
Ben Smith and the Dukes of Dixieland performing Riverboat Shuffle prior to departure
Capt. Troy Delaney in pilothouse on departure, Capt. Robbie Mitchell observing; next shot includes Capt. Don Houghton with Troy
Debbie Fagnano at the calliope
2nd generation in the Engine Room: Scott Vieages and Juan Mendivil Jr., with Chief Juan (Sr. Scotty is also Chief and was part of the Bergeron crew which built the NATCHEZ)
Dukes playing The Saints - that's Riverwalk in the background as the NATCHEZ is heading home on the dinner cruise. Its neat to be standing on the Riverwalk or Woldenberg Park as the band wraps up the evening since the boat is quite close to shore.
One thing which trips people up constantly - when the trip starts, it goes downriver, not up. We are landed downriver which is against the current of the eddy which runs from Gov. Nic up the east bank to Canal St. or so...
Overall, a nice article and accompanying video to brighten the day!
