  3. Queen of the Mississippi
We really enjoyed ourselves even though it was changed due to mississippi floods. we think the staff were superb even though there were problems. we especially liked drew godfrey the hotel manager. unfortunately we received info on port change first time week before the trip. it took 4 days to get a new flight. after we got to st. louis fri nite, we did not find out about a change to bus to paducah for boat loading until that morning. we thought we were going to st. louis. we would recommend changing bathroom lights to fluorescent as regular lights make it very warm. we'd prefer an earlier happy hour to give more time before dinner. the happy hour is great with any drink or wine and munchies. but you go to the dining room full. A larger TV would be great. all in all we really enjoyed ourselves and are doing another trip next year. we are hoping drew godfrey will be on the Chesapeake trip.

Great cruise regardless of floods
