  • Only remaining great lakes ferry that's all original. Great tour with Josh. You can stay overnight in the rooms if you want, and they provide a continental breakfast. The retired Coast guard ship, the Acadia is harbored right next to the S. S. City of Milwaukee, so you can see 2 boats at that location. It's $10 admission per adult, $7 seniors. There's a campground with docks for those who want to take their boats onto Lake Michigan from the channel there at Manistee.
  • If I had to describe it in one word it would be: Marvelous Hi I'm Honest Reviews4U and my goal is to tell the honest truth about things. This is so incredible I can't even make an organized list! Just thinking about the history and what it takes to take care of and clean this is amazing! And the fact that your can spend the night on it!! And During October it is a "Haunted Ship" which I LOVE TO BE A PART OF!! I will take every chance I get to go on this ship!! If you get the opportunity to go on this ship, PLEASE TAKE IT and tell them I sent you!! I'm looking forward to October already!!
  • I have always wanted to visit the ship and was pleased with the tour. I would go again and take my visitors.
  • Huge menu, lots of choices, our selections were fantastic, would return any time.
  • my grandma lives right next to it in the condo development on Arthur St. and whenever i visit her, i can see it from her balcony, even though i have never been inside it, i see it almost every year
