Went June 2012 for 50 Anniv and it was excellent. Food was great service above par cabin was small but comfortable an cute as a button. Entertainment was fabulous as was family friendliness Loved the shore trips and buses but not all were free an goo value for the money. that was shore trips an good value. Went on Miss Queen 1991 was great also.Sorry to see it was scrapped what a shame. Have cute steamboat tiny clock would sell like hotcakes in gift shop but no reply to letter or photo. In 1995 my late parents went on the original inaugural cruise of AQ an were supposed to have their names put on bronze plaque on boat which I think is near Mark Twain Room but is not there so I wrote co pres but got no reply. And when they got off 1995 cruise they were given little ships bell on red block as gift. Does anyone have one they could part with? Theirs were accidentally tosses when the died. Sure like to have one. Worthpoint auction House has one but they do not seem to want to part with it. Lets hear from you other past passengers. Ging on Delta Queen Hotel if they ever bring it to Symrna Beach Florida from Chattanooga. Looks like its a done deal but I will check the blog.

Wonderful food, loved every bite.

Cute as a button an very comfortable I slept like a log

Loved the river ladys talks and really enjoyed see ing engine room and upstairs where captain is such a nice person very young looking said he ages well as has been captain for thirty yrs of cruises an was surprised no wheel in this room they said its all done I guess by machines or computers VERY impressive and old boiler type thing was still being used in engine room which was really hot. Sorry gor spelling errors

Dont miss its a once in a lifetime opportunity
