So, first of all it, is easy to...More

I agree w/ other posts, no advance tix purchase needed. Also agree that you should check the website, there may be events to join or avoid. It's a city on water. It's giant. I recommend that you eat before so you can just enjoy the ship. Great places on Webster St., on the way. Use the YELP website for ideas. Have fun!
