Although I did not take an excusion, I did walk around downtown Norfolk...and visited the small but well done Navy Museum in the Nautacus building next to the ship. Intereswtingly...and importantly...the museum's Civil War section spotlighted both the USA and CSA actions in the area, inclduign the the Monitor and Virginia clash. From our starboard balconly I had a great view of the USS Wisconsin; I had recently toured the USS IOWA so did not go on board. I was fascinated by the view of the port from the stern as we backed in. Read Less

As I covered in my earlier review the parking was severely understaffed and the entire process seemed very chaotic and disorganized.

Norfolk can improve the embarkation procedures to speed things up, but as a part time port, they did a good job.

The thing that made this a great port is that I had the opportunity to see my three great grand children for the first time.

I wanted to tour the museum next to us but it closed at 5 and I got thru immigration 5 minutes after it closed. The second day, we walked thruout the historical district and I toured the USS Wisconsin battleship which is docked right next to us. The town is very tourist friendly..very clean, easy to move about... Read Less

Since the dock are right next to the oldest part of Norfolk, we took the self guided "Cannonball" walk. Lots of history and interesting sights along the way.
