About 10 min later here comes the captain an I said Where is the ships wheel? He said There is none boat is run by computers. Wow I was stunned no wheel?Went

Went on everything. A tour of maximum prison a safari trip through an old mansion you name it we did it.

Was to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary. Trip was perfect. Started with one night free stay in wonderful hotel in New Orleans. Our cabin was small but cute as a button an bedding was first class an so comfortable an we had the nicest maid who made little swans out of terry towels an left them on our bed. I only have one apparently unsolvable problem with AQ and have written an e mailed them prob 9 times about. In 1995 my late parents were on the AQ Inaugural Cruise. As part of the cruise they were given little brass bells on red planks to mark the occasion. They were also told their names would be engraved on the boat bell which later became a bronze plaque attached outside th Mark Twain Room. For some unknown reason their name was accidently left off an I went right to the top people in charge of the boat an they for some odd reason do not wan to add my parents names. I have been trying about 5 yrs now. But we really enjoyed or 2012 cruise. One Great Vacation. excuse spelling Carole
