I put N6 fuel on the Queen back in my St. Paul days.
This is truly an antique.

The last time I saw the DQ at a lock on her way down the Upper Mississippi was not long before her exemption was pulled thanks to James Oberstar. She appeared a bit tired at the time, but she also looked like a riverboat, not a behemoth cartoon caricature of one. If she finally gets a reprieve and eventually goes back on the river, I think I will add a trip on her to my bucket list.

I like the Delta Queen. Sell it to the highest bidder. Government will just...mess it up.

I had no idea it was an actual steamboat. After reading Life On The Mississippi and the death of Twain’s brother, I won’t be booking. Still happy it’ll be plying the river again.

They let hundreds of families live in huge, three-story wooden apartment buildings, but they won’t let people overnight in a wooden ship?

It would be lovely to have her back in The Great Steamboat Race.
