I was in the Coast Guard and had enlisted friends stationed on the Eagle, so I had the opportunity to roam around the entire ship. It was magnificent and spotless. You could eat of the floor (deck) anywhere on the ship, thanks to the endless work of the cadets. The cadets also go up in the rigging to set the sails in all sorts of weather. That takes real guts. If you have a chance to go aboard, don't miss it. You'll be impressed.
