The cost for admission is $67.00 per person and includes an overnight stay on the USS Little Rock Missile Cruiser, dinner and breakfast in the ship’s galley and a self-guided tour of all three vessels docked in port at the Naval Park. The three (3) vessels are as follows: the USS Sullivans, a destroyer, the USS Little Rock, a guided missile cruiser, and the USS Croaker, a submarine. There will be three (3) hours of free time the night of our arrival. Stay as long as you like on Sunday touring the Museum, the Artifact Display Yard and exploring the three Naval Vessels. The exhibits in the museum at the port and on-board USS Little Rock begin with the War of 1812 and move forward to Desert Storm. Take a step back in time as you walk through the Artifact Display Yard and see some the equipment and vehicles that helped change and make history. They include an H-1 Huey Helicopter, an M42 Walker Bulldog Tank, a Navy F4JB Fury Jet and much more. Enjoy an on-board movie on Saturday night.
