The Delta Queen Steamboat, Maysville Landing

CLICK HERE to explore the Delta Queen virtual tour.

In 1989 the Delta Queen, the last of the over-night steam-powered sternwheelers, was designated a National Historic Landmark. Here she is at the Floodwall in Marysville, Kentucky. These are a few panoramas from what was her last trip here to Maysville as her exempton to the SOLAS expired on 10/31/08 after exhausting all reprieves. From 2009 until 2014 she served as a floating boutique hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She is currently in Louisiana awaiting repairs.

In 2017 there is once again renewed interest and talks about bringing her back to ply the rivers as an overnight cruise ship.

I have went back and remastered my original files from 2008 to create this updated tour with higher resolution and compatibility with current smartphones, tablets etc.
