The wife and I have been on the Midway 5 times and still have not seen the entire ship. There is a good restaurant on the fantail (back of the ship) called the Fantail Restaurant.

Great ship with a 52-year career. Great San Diego harbor view from the flight deck. Very interesting tours of the ship about the way it operated. There is constant work going on to make the experience better. The ship is available for private parties.
