Built in 1926, Delta Queen is registered as a National Historic Landmark and is the last operational over-night steam-powered sternwheeler in the United States. These pages contain various 360 degree interactive panoramic virtual tour views of the Delta Queen. I created these views from images that I took on October 22, 2008 while the Delta Queen was docked in Maysville, Kentucky. The crew was extremely gracious and helpful to me during my short visit onboard to take these images. My purpose is to give the viewers of these images, especially those who have never been aboard, an idea of what it is like on the Delta Queen. None of the images have been staged so what you see is the same as if you were on board during a typical cruise.
The interactive panoramics are presented fullscreen on your monitor and are high resolution in both QuickTime and Flash formats. Be sure to click on the links below the image to take you to the interactive panoramic. Then use your mouse and click in the image and drag in any direction to look all around the Delta Queen. The images that you see on the main pano blog page are a rather distorted view of reality. That is because the image actually represents an entire 360 degree horizontal view and a 180 degree vertical view, in other words that is all the way around and up and down. When that is flattened out in an image that is twice as wide as it is high you end up with what I have there on the main page.
