That's right, we did! Lots of seals this fall, for some reason! Thanks for sailing.

A little piece history! They have a bathroom, a little β€œlive entertainment,” snacks, beverages and even adult beverages! They give a little history lesson. As well as a chance to see how the Fame was made, to really appreciate its craftsmanship. Great trip for everyone!...More

Mike and the crew of the Fame were awesome! The cruise gave us some of the history of the Salem Harbor and the legend of the Fame itself. They made everyone feel welcome and spent time talking to each passenger. I would definitely take another...More
