Just go out there and wander around the ship. It is great, listen to the audio tour and the guys with yellow caps explaining the landing and take off on the flight deck. Command tower is also nice. Just go!

Well worth the 23 bucks. The vet volunteers are a wealth of knowledge. If you haven’t been on an aircraft carrier put this on you bucket list.
