What are Living History Cruises? Living History itself is an educational way to look at history, by having people 'step back in time' through the use of period entertainment, historical reenactment and historical activities. On our Living History Cruises, passengers will have access to most parts of the ship (while it's in action... remember, this is a 70+ year old ship that was made to last one voyage. And there are only 2 operational ships out of over 2,700+ ships). Here are some things you will see on the ship itself... Passengers, entertainers, reenactors, crew, veterans. Talk with the crew, other passengers and the entertainers. If you see a veteran, ask them their story; the world loses it's veterans each day, and we want to keep their stories alive.
But all of these things are the types of things you will see while you're on the ship. You will also see many other things that are not on the ship. Stay alert while you're having a great time, because there is so much to see and so many opportunities to witness
2016 was a pretty busy year for the ship. We had 2 scheduled Baltimore cruises (though the October cruise was canceled due to weather) and we also had 2 port visits (Norfolk and NYC). This year we have two cruises scheduled in Baltimore and we changed the October cruise to a September cruise due to bad luck with October cruises and hurricanes. The cruise dates for May and September are found on the website. Please join us if you can. Click on the different links to order your specific cruise dates.
