Had a great time exploring this fantastic vessel. It just shows how the crew lived and reacted when in service. The staff were very friendly and helpful if we had a question.

Kids really enjoyed walking around it and seeing how naval officers etc lived on Sea. Didn't have to book to walk around it either.

Great ship to explore but wear sensible shoes. There are some steep steps so access to some parts a bit tricky but overall a great experience seeing how sailors live on ships. Staff extremely knowledgeable.
