Desoite the cold and windy weather, it was our 5th but best harbor cruise ever. The Narrator knew every freighter, warship, repair dock etc and explained it so colorful - you just did not want the cruise to end.

What an excellent way to get a great view of the Atlantic fleet. We saw two aircraft carriers and any other ships. Great narration and a pleasant stop at the fort. Hearty recommendation.

We initially signed up for the cruise to "kill some time" but were all intrigued by the narration and history of the Captain. Also did not hurt they served beer and snacks!
