I want to keep this as generic as possible, so please forgive me. Anyone that has done a cruise will know the frustration or know how to avoid it.
There is paperwork hell and between the 5 pages for command and the 5512 - there is just lots of confusion.
for me - we have made it past the pages for command, but this 5512 is turning into a CF. so i am wanting to ask:
any feedback is valuable. thank you in advance

Seems like no one else is comfortable answering your questions, so I will give it a try. I think you are referring to the forms needed for a tiger cruise. I haven't been on one, but remember family members of shipmates sailing with us from Hawaii to San Diego when returning from WestPac. The SecNav form 5512 looks like a form for info for a background check. The most common use for such is for ID for people working on a base (so the info about work hours is needed). It's not a perfect fit for a background check for a tiger cruiser, but probably the closest fit to provide the info needed for the check. Your sailor should be able to find out who the ship's ombudsman is. That person should be able to find the answers to questions that you have.
