Hello, I am a new member here and did some searching but did not see my questions directly addressed. If I missed it somewhere, my apologies!
My son is a Lieutenant on an Ohio class Sub based in Bangor, WA. He will be completing his sea tour duty this spring (Blue Crew I think) and recently invited me to go on a Tiger Cruise. We spoke yesterday (he is on shore for about a week before deploying again) and the cruise will start with participants embarking at the Sub base in San Diego and make it's way back to the base in Bangor, approx 7 days along the Pacific coast.
I am a photographer by profession and one thing I was looking forward to doing was photographing the event from my photo journalist perspective but when I mentioned that he wasn't completely sure if cameras would be allowed. Anyone know if this is correct? I've done some Google searches and have seen photos from both above the water and below the water cruises. Maybe it's a new regulation. I'm used to traveling light and figure I'll be fine with a few changes of clothes, toiletries, etc. Any other suggestions?
So far all he has asked me for was my SS# to submit with my DOB. At some point will I receive some kind of paper work or application?
I am an average guy for my age, 54... fairly good health but could shed a few pounds. I am not particularly claustrophobic but don't like to be uncomfortable! Does a Sub TC sound like something an old guy like me could do?
