Captain Mary served her final years on the legendary “Delta Queen” steamboat. To learn more about that boat’s amazing 82-year career, CLICK HERE. The “Delta Queen” was built in 1927 at the incredible cost of almost $1 million as one of the last great floating riverboat palaces. She initially ran the Sacramento River, then served as a U.S. Navy vessel during World War II. After the war she was auctioned off, relocated through the Panama Canal, beautifully renovated, and then cruised another 60 years on the Mississippi River and its tributaries. Learn more about her adventures, famous travelers, incredible owners and crew, and how Congress eventually forced her into retirement. Plus hear about the dreams and plans of new owners who hope one day to return the boat to cruising. CLICK HERE.
