Paducah Ambassadors bid farewell to the Delta Queen.

Paducah Ambassadors bid farewell to the Delta Queen.

We docked in Paducah, KY for a cool, morning stop. Some passengers headed off on shore tours, but there are so many repeat passengers that most just stroll in to town to shop or lounge around the boat, savoring the ambiance.

We slipped away with a few of the entertainers to our favorite coffee shop, Etcetera out on 6th Street. They have good, hot coffee and fast internet access, both of which are coveted treasures to steamboat employees. A nice local lunch and back the boat for our 1pm departure.

A great crowd gathered to wave farewell, including the wonderful Paducah Ambassadors (often known as the Red Coats). For years, these incredible volunteers have welcomed our guests with information, maps and warm hospitality. We will miss you Paducah!
