Default Tourist Boats

The other day Kenny Howe, Keith Norrington, Travis Vasconselos, and myself were having a "hot stove" session and the subject of strictly dedicated passenger boats came-up. We tried to name all that we knew of and it turns out there were darn few of them:
HARRY G. DREES.....extremely short lived only a couple of years starting in 1924.
GOLDEN EAGLE.....tourist only 1934-1943. Under new ownership she ran in 1946, then sank in 1947.
GORDON C. GREENE......apparently became tourist only sometime after 1940, retired in 1952.
DELTA QUEEN....1947 until 1958 under the Greene Line banner, since then a succession of owners, Which owner operated her the longest?
MISSISSIPPI QUEEN.....1977 until about 2005 under many owners.
AMERICAN QUEEN.....1995-2008 and again 2012 until now under new ownership.
Those are all the steam ones we could think of. Can you think of any others?
It's not a long or very prosperous list.
