If you are interested in a nostalgic pleasurable riverboat ride the Delta
Queen and Mississippi Queen are excellent choices.
"Here Comes the Showboat" is the song I remember hearing as a young girl
as the Delta Queeen would pass by on the Ohio River. The music was very
unique, because it was played on a caliope, which is an organ played
using steam whistles.
To this day, it is a big event when the Mississippi Queen or the Delta
Queen goes up or down the river. Every one along the river stops to
watch the magnificence of the packet wheel boats.
