I actually have a pretty strong personal tie to the Delta Queen since the father of a good friend of mine was instrumental in "saving" the DQ.
The Delta Queen used to go up and down the Mississippi but it couldn't cover a lot of ground. I think it probably stopped in Natchez when you sailed out from New Orleans.
I posted the pics just for an example, we had two choices of ship, we didn't go on Natchez so it must have been Delta Queen. I wasn't well having just had 'flu (swine flu I reckon) & regret not paying more attention & not realising the history of the riverboat.
