im just wondering if any seasoned cruisers found the queen to be very expensive compared to other cruise lines. i have checked out the tours out of st.louis for 2004 and cannot get a tour for under $3000. i want a cabin to myself but i refuse to pay that much for the trip when i live on the mississippi. i would appriciate any replys that wil give some insight on the cost of your trip or who your ta was or is. thanks.
