There have been several owners since our last Delta Queen cruise, but my travel agency customers tell me that little has changed. They love it, but it is expensive, so I don’t sell it much anymore.
The story of Betty Blake could be a movie. She is the lady who rose from secretary to CEO of the company, and who saved the Queen on the first go round, a generation ago. Nobody ever lobbied harder, for less personal gain than Miss Blake. The lounge on the Delta Queen is named in her memory.
