She’s a survivor! S.S. Lane Victory, one of 534 “Victory” class cargo ships built during World War II, has a proud and storied history. During World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, Lane Victory and her brave crew served America honorably while surviving German U-boats, typhoons, mines, and the passage of time. Now a floating museum on the L.A. waterfront, not far from where she was born in 1945, the S.S. Lane Victory is a U.S. National Historic Landmark and just one of three remaining “Victory” ships in the world. We’ll enjoy a docent-guided tour aboard this famed, 10,000-ton cargo ship that serves as a living museum and memorial to the service and sacrifices of all Navy and Merchant Marine sailors. Visit the engine room, the cargo holds and the bridge where the ship’s officers navigated vast oceans while in fear of being discovered by wolf pack submarines and Luftwaffe dive-bombers. Walk the passageways where maritime heroes lived for months at a time. See their living quarters, their eating areas and their recreation areas, and stand on the decks where the men stood determined to bring food, ammunition, mail, and supplies to those fighting in the trenches while they, themselves, did not know if they would survive the trip home. Man’ the big guns and browse two great museums packed with videos, history, anecdotes and artifacts. We continue to Long Beach’s Pike Pier for an included lunch at Gladstone’s, the highly-rated, waterfront restaurant known for seafood. This afternoon we’ll enjoy a narrated L.A. Harbor cruise with shaded and unshaded areas for your comfort. Learn about the bustling L.A. Harbor, coined “America’s Port” as it is the nation’s #1 container port. We’ll explore the coastline and see large ships, wildlife, historical landmarks and much more! This tour involves moderate walking. Because of the historic nature of the ship, not all areas are easily accessible by guests with mobility issues. No sandals or high heels.
To ensure a healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our guests, this tour will have a number of additional health and safety measures in place and require each guest complete a Wellness Pledge/Release of Liability Agreement.
