Food was very good if you like Lousiana style cooking. Chef Joyce is still onboard. As far as air, they have air in some rooms-but electricity has to be powered up. This is an old ship from 1926-so her parts are from then. Since they still work and are historical, I don't think they want to mess with that by upgrading her system. Air conditioning was window units. We were on her this wkend. Our room was a bit warm-no thermostat for heat-but all the history and antiques, it was worth putting up with that. I imagine she would be lovely in spring or fall. However, I would avoid her in summer.
