Daily Deals: Historic Ship Hotels

Have you ever dreamed about spending the night aboard a historic riverboat or cruise ship? Well, now it’s possible. Thanks to Groupon, you can dine and sleep aboard the Delta King, Delta Queen or Queen Mary, just like politicians, business owners and celebrities did many years ago. Take a look:

Delta King Hotel (Sacramento, CA): In the 1920s, the Delta King riverboat travelled from San Francisco to Sacramento, but now you can stay overnight in a river-view stateroom at the Delta King Hotel for just $118 (reg: $236). As a bonus, you’ll also get a private tour of the Delta King, including five decks, kitchens and theatres. Enjoy the on-board Pilothouse restaurant for dinner or made-to-order breakfasts. This Groupon deal runs through 12/31.

Delta Queen Hotel (Chattanooga, TN): Save 50% on a one- or two-night stay on the Delta Queen. While this 1920s steamboat has been retired for some time, you’ll love the floating Delta Queen Hotel that’s just $69 (reg: $139) for one night or $138 (reg: $278) for two nights. The rooms are small, so a family of four would need to reserve two rooms. Stop in the Paddlewheel Restaurant for shrimp and grits or fried catfish. Yum. This Groupon deal runs through 1/1.

The Queen Mary (Long Beach, CA): Before the Queen Mary retired in the 1960s and docked in Long Beach, she hosted celebrities like Bob Hope, Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn. Today, you can stay where the celebs stayed for as low as $68 (reg: $153) per night for an inner stateroom at The Queen Mary hotel. You’ll also receive two tickets to the ship’s current exhibit, Diana: Legacy of a Princess. This Groupon deal runs through 12/31.
