Living History Cruise Ready the Cargo Hampton Roads Sunday May 22, 2016 Nauticus and the Half Moone Cruise Terminal: 1 Waterside Dr; Norfolk, VA Sail back into World War II aboard a national treasure. The SS JOHN W BROWN carries you back into wartime. You experience life aboard the last remaining troop ship from WWII. The historic original triple expansion steam engine powers us in convoy through the day. Meeting soldiers, marines, sailors and civilian re-enactors help pull you back into wartime. The entertainment gives the feel of a USO Show aboard ship. Through the day, some air cover will be provided to see us safely on our journey. The troop mess provides sea rations (deli lunch), coffee, water and sodas. Chairs, Sunscreen, and a Camera are great things to bring along onto the ship. Please keep in mind this is a working cargo ship so sensible shoes are a must.
