Engineering “Steam to Speed” (guided tour)


Engineering Steam to Speed Tour

Begins in the crew’s mess, which is near the end of the current Fire Power tour. Guests will get to walk through both fire room two with two of the ship’s eight boilers and engine room two with one of the ship’s turbine units that turns one of the four propellers and two turbo generators, which create electrical power for some of the 1,000 motors on the ship. Guests will see the throttle board where speed was controlled and burners where fuel consumption was controlled.  They will get to go down to the hold and look up at one of the ship’s massive propeller shafts.

This optional add-on tour is included with the purchase of a Fire Power Tour for a limited time.
