Great experience!!! We loved the ship and the staff was very friendly. We took the cruise while the air show was going on and it made for an excellent and unique trip. Highly recommend

Great tall ship and staff. Beautiful day on the water. Crew very friendly and mingle well. You can help with sails if you wish. There is food and drink if you want a meal while you travel along the shore line. Thouroughly enjoyed the experience.
