Delta Queen

Mississippi Queen

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.
