NASHVILLE was the scene of a historic event over the weekend, with the first authentic paddlewheeler built for the Mississippi River in nearly 20 years, Queen of the Mississippi, officially christened at a lavish waterfront event, before setting sail on her inaugural seven-night voyage to St Louis.

Following her debut, the Queen of the Mississippi will feature a schedule of itineraries that will take guests along the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers.
