- Climb to the Navigation Bridge and stand at the helm where captains bravely commanded the 900-foot, 41,600-ton ship.
- Walk through Officers’ Quarters, Crew’s Berthing, Medical Spaces, and other areas while imagining what life was like on a floating city.
- Have a chance to meet former crew and hear their personal experiences.
