Georgia Queen

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 13 January 2020 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The Georgia Queen is a 1,000-passenger riverboat that traveled 2,800 miles down the Mississippi River, down and around the shorelines of Florida to call Savannah her home. The Georgia Queen is a great way to see the city and is one of the most unique social gathering destinations in Savannah, but its impact on local tourism and economic development will be substantial with the added ability to attract large conferences and conventions.

Built in 1995 as a luxury floating casino for $14,000,000, the majestic 1800's paddlewheel-style riverboat spent several years traveling the Mississippi River. When gambling legislations changed, allowing land-based casinos to open, the riverboat underwent a $4,000,000 makeover. The Georgia Queen measures an impressive 230 feet long, 64 feet wide and towering at 68 feet tall. She is among the top elite in the country with a capacity of 1,000 passengers, plus a 200-person crew, making her the size of a small cruise ship at 38,000 square feet. The ship’s entertainment spaces include three grand ballrooms with over 15,000 square feet of dining space. It offers more than 5,000 square feet of open-air top deck space with patio seating.

Photos taken from the deck of the Georgia Queen will be posted sporadically.

an amazing creation - i thought it must be very old except it seemed too big; then i read your description and I understood. I think i would not be eager to board; it reminds me too much of a cruise ship.
