Phyllis, sorry it has taken me so long to reply, I remain totally immersed in the preparation of the Delat Queen to sail, as you know, she is my love! We are all eternally grateful for what you have done, but I must admit that I am jealous when I hear of the fun you guys have had on the reunion cruises on the MQ. Someday, maybe my wife Myra (former chief purser of the Delta Queen) and I will have our own reunion cruise, one that will be unique because we have never worked on another boat other that the Delta Queen!After 21 straight years on the same great old steamboat, I think I am ready to join the "Reunion Gang"! Except I want to make a cruise experience that takes you deep into the roots of the Delta Queen, into her heart, into her life, and to revealing places never seen by or guests. I want people to be able to touch steamboats in a new and untapped way, that can't be done on another cruise with varied destinations. Tramping is great, but I intend to make the vessel herself the destination, imagine, standing at the boilers controls as the fireman shows you how to adjust the steam, see yourself at the bow as the mate barks at you to take up on the capstan as the boat lands, attend river briefings as your cruise progresses. I hope to make the Delta Queen cruise an interactive experience, for those who chose, and as always, to become as involved as YOU like. I know and love this old boat, and I shall share her with you as much as you like, you folks have earned it! I am open to all suggestions! Let's live steamboating!
