Was stationed at the Norfolk Naval Base and I never heard of any overnight
stays on ships. They have to be approved by the Commander for any stay
onboard, other then a regular tour.
One great attraction that is now in Norfolk is the Nauticus Museum. They
have a pretty good group rate (about $10 per person, 1 free adult for every
ten scouts). The exhibits are great and there is lots of interactive stuff
to do. The phone number is (757) 664-1000. They sent me a really great
brochure, that even included interactive software when I inquired about
going with my troop. Hope this helps.
