This was a really interesting experience to see the whole ship. The best part was the guide, a man who had served as a cadet himself on the ship. who explained everything in detail with kindness and a nice sense of humor.

This is a lovely and rather large ship. While it does not have the complete charm of a real old ship, it's still impressive and when the wind blows through its sails - it's magic. Not for anyone suffering for sea sickness.
