Default Cruising Up the Mississippi River

Was thinking that a Ms. River cruise on one of those old fashioned paddle boats would be something different. Has anyone ever done this? Who could I contact for info?

The Mississippi Queen is out of service for this year, but to find the schedule for American Queen, just google Mississippi Queen. I've always wanted to do a cruise as we often see them when we pilot our houseboat on the Upper Mississippi.

Unfortunately, the Mississippi Queen andthe Delta Queen are both out of service this season. But the American Queen is a beautiful paddle boat.

She is more modern and less authentic than the others, just so you know. But she is a very nice boat on the inside (and out), much larger than the other two and with more onboard activities. I have dnne three of these (American Queen twice, Delta Queen once). I think they are great.

Paul, if one was to take a river boat trip up the Mississippi, what time of
year would you suggest? Do they make stops anywhere?
