SS American Victory Mariners Museum

I often use Groupon to save on vacation experiences.  When I saw that the American Victory ship was next to the Florida National Aquarium I new we could squeeze in a visit!  So I purchased a Groupon for $5 for two adult admissions.  We left our car in the aquarium lot after our visit and walked next door to the ship.

The Victory is a fully functional WWII ship. The ship is 455 feet long and was launched in May 1945 and spent its time carrying cargo to Europe and then to South Vietnam.

And you are free to explore at your own pace or craziness…
