I was dining with owners (an CEO) Jeff Krida and Christopher Kyte last night. They just signed an agreement with Apollo catering (Oceania and Regent) and they have a wonderful culinary designer.

This is going to be a first class cruise product with excellent food and service.

The price includes a pre-cruise stay in Memphis (worth it for any music lover).

We have been cruising for two days now. Last night's dinner was excellent - gourmet ingredients with a slightly southern.cajun twist. The salmon was juicy yet sweet, with just a tough of something sugary in the sauc (honey, raisins?)

Yesterday the Harry James Orchestra played a swining dance set. We also have two riverlorians onboard, plus "Mark Twain" who has been speaking on American Queen for as long as I can remember.

Gotta run to the Riverlorian talk ight. BTW: the beds are fantastic, I slept llonger last night than I have in 10 years.
