Subject: Re: hooray for DQ &MQ, but AQ?


But what is the status as far as investors and getting the AQ back?

I was a bartender on the AQ and even though my tour of duty was short, I felt like I had come home. I've moved more than 22 times in my adult life. I've had hundreds of jobs if I include temporary and volunteer jobs. I've made lots of money and also lost lots of money similar to Enron employees because my job in January 2001 went Chapter 11 and I had both employee purchased stock and some of my 401K tied up. When I boarded the AQ in July 2001, I finally found a job that I loved. It was long days, sometimes hard work, and not as monetarily rewarding as previous jobs but OH MY--- those sunsets on the river, the team I worked with, the many wonderful passengers I met--- I had found a job and a home. When AMC declared Chapter 11, I was on vacation with a ticket in hand to come back to the boat where I left most of my belongings. One of my co-workers picked up the belongings and I have been picking up the pieces of my life ever since.

So, if anyone knows factual information about WHEN the AQ will be back on the rivers- share your knowledge. I truly believe that with the wonderful efforts of people like Phyllis Dale and others, we will save all of our queens! : )

Cheers: )
