Fifteen of us enjoyed an afternoon on the American Rover. We enjoyed the tour and the live music afterwards. We had a beautiful day too, so it was pretty much a perfect experience.

My wife’s family gets together every other year to have a little reunion. One of the planned activities is some sort of group activity, usually some sort of cruise. This year’s event was the American Rover. It was a good choice.

The ship is beautiful...lovely lines and very comfortable even under a hot sun. The crew had rigged awnings to provide shade. Everybody was very friendly and willing to answer questions. Once away from the dock, the passengers were separated into groups to learn a little about the ship and sailing. We helped raise the sails, the kids had a chance to steer the ship, and the crew pointed out some of the different navy ships under repair in various shipyards. Other activities included learning about the various rigging and tying knots. A good time was had by all.

The cruise itself lasted about 90 minutes and seemed to pass faster than that. Next time, we’ll do the sunset cruise.

Great Father's Day event with family. Complimentary snacks were a pleasant surprise. Relaxing and a good overview of the Norfolk Harbor.
