S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien Review

A participant in the D-Day landing in Normandy during World War II, this Liberty Ship freighter is one of two such vessels (out of more than 2,700 built) still in working order. To keep the 1943 ship in sailing shape, the steam engine—which appears in the film Titanic—is operated dockside seven times a year on special "steaming weekends." Cruises take place several times a year between May and October, and the vessel is open to visitors daily.
