QUAD CITIES (KWQC) – The former Isle of Capri casino boat has said its farewells and is headed down river.

Mississippi RiverMany Quad City residents saw the boat chugging down the Mississippi River this morning as it passed through lock and dam 15. The former QCA icon had floated in Bettendorf waters for years before it was sold.

The river boat was previously sold to the American Queen Steamboat Company in September. The company plans to use the old Isle boat as a cruise ship. The boat will be renovated to include a third deck, suites, lofts, and two dining areas.
