“Brilliant Jeanie Johnston visit! We visited in July thinking we would just be wandering around the ship. However, we were met on board by a tour guide who filled us in on the real life story behind the Jeanie Johnston. The tour guide was excellent and made the information all so interesting and real for us and our kids”
