Just five months after the shipyard launch of Delta Queen Coastal
Voyages' first vessel, the second ship in the new fleet
was christened at Atlantic Marine, Inc., in Jacksonville, Fla., Friday, November 17, 2000.
The 226-passenger coastal vessel will inaugurate nine cruise itineraries featuring the Great Lakes, Canadian Maritime Provinces and U.S. eastern seaboard in 2001. The ship launched Friday
, the CV Cape Cod Light, will debut Aug. 4, 2001; its sister ship, CV Cape May Light, will enter service on May 5, 2001.
