It turned out to be a 4 Hr. tour and we had every bit of the ship explained to us and we could spend as much time in each area as what took to have questions asked and answered . We got a lot of story’s of what went on when the ship was in service. Our guides all had served time on this ship. Everyone was quit enthused with this tour.
