“Best value of the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

$10 admission is a real deal. Amazing to be able to climb and stroll through history. Ship still sails, so a little messy in parts. Wear good stable walking shoes. Docents around to answer questions, but pretty much leave you alone. Great for picture taking and watching commercial river/bay traffic.Would really like to sail on her someday....maybe next time.

“Interesting naval ship!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Really enjoyed touring the ship, especially since it is in running condition. We may try to go back in the fall and take a day cruise on it....very unique opportunity.

If you go in the summer.....WATER! WATER! WATER!! Florida can be horribly hot.

“Go See!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

This is worth the stop. We did the self guided tour & it took us about 2 hours. You can go at your own pace & really look things over. My teenage son loved it. It is very interesting to see how they lived. You can imagine the sailors aboard the ship. We also took some nice snap shots. Glad we did not miss this!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This shipment is well worth a visit. It is hot this time of year but not unbearable. It does however make you admire the sailors who have served aboard. Easy to drift back in time and imagine the brave men doing what needed to be done in the Pacific.

“We had never seen a Victory Ship before”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We have been on a lot of war ships but had never seen a victory ship before. It was very informative. You hear about the aircraft carriers and battleships but don't really think about how they get their supplies. It was a little hot but I don't think they get the attention they should so they don't get as many guests. Would have liked a better gift shop with more history books.
