Don’t delay if you have an interest in spending a night or two on the Delta Queen because it faces an uncertain fate in Chattanooga. The steamboat may remain docked at its current location, it may be sold and relocated to a new home as a hotel, or it may undergo an extensive overhaul (among other things it needs new boilers) and return to its roots carrying guests on the river. Let’s hope it is the latter.
