  • Fascinating step back in time of a cruise ship older than the Titanic and beautifully preserved. It is amazing how much of the original equipment is still on display and much of it in working order. The dining room is all original. They found the original china stored in boxes behind a closed off room. The steam engine still turns and they demonstrate the propulsion system. Even my wife, who isn’t usually interested in these things, really enjoyed it.
  • This place is very interesting! They are bringing back to life a luxury liner of the Great Lakes, and you can really imagine the ghosts of the past as they would have danced and dined across the waves. Visiting the boilers and the engine room and seeing the massive pistons moving was awe inspiring. Our tour guide had great knowledge of the ship and related many anecdotes about the crews and passengers of the past.
