Fantastic! A must do! Before we boarded we watched a fifteen minute very informative film about the history of the ship. Fortunately, we had the perfect day for sailing in the Estuary and Bay. The narrator pointed out all of the sights we passed. It was so entertaining to learn facts about places, that we knew, but had no idea of the history or fun stories, that were shared with us.
Since most of the passengers were "seniors", it was especially meaningful to be a little part of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's life. For the younger passengers, it was a very delightful informative cruise/
Please bring a jacket and wear flat, comfortable shoes.
There is a 15-minute video about the history of the ship that begins one hour prior to departure in the Visitor's Center.
