Comment by Mark Johnson on October 9, 2015 at 12:22pm

Pina Colada for me watching the sun go down. TC TR 2015 rocks! Hooyah

Comment by NavyDads Co-Admin, Gary on October 9, 2015 at 10:54am

Paul did you say a Mai Tai Meet N Greet for TC folks? Oh darn!!

Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on October 9, 2015 at 9:59am
Phil is correct- watch your OPSEC- my sailor (VAW-125) had an early det and is back in VA so no Tiger Cruise for me - double darn!!!!!
Comment by Phil Shannon on October 9, 2015 at 9:30am

Yes OPSEC applies here so good idea to take discussions with specific info over to private messages (where the public cannot access)

Comment by Mark Johnson on October 9, 2015 at 9:25am

Jim Bair. Contact me via Facebook PM. Mark Skeet Johnson. I am going on the TR Tiger Cruise

Comment by Jim Bair on October 9, 2015 at 8:51am
Is it against OPSEC to discuss travel plans for after the upcoming TC on TR. Since the embarkation day changed by one day, I don't know on what day the ship is going to dock in the USA. I talked to our sailor just recently and he didn't know. Just wondering if any of the other Dads have official word?
Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on August 14, 2015 at 5:20pm

Getting anxious to find out about a TC on the TR !

Comment by John E. Prindle on January 26, 2015 at 5:14am
Steve, I was very lucky to participate in 2 Tiger Cruises. One on the Dewey, the second on the Stennis. Pack lightly, bring a windbreaker, and strong sturdy work boots. You will be in a working environment most of the time on ship. Ask your sailor to attempt to secure you a middle or lower rack, as climbing out of the top rack can be an adventure in rolling seas. I would also bring a combo lock to secure your personal papers in your rack. Lastly bring a duffle type bag, not a suitcase as there is very limited room for storage. Enjoy your time with your sailor!
