On many (but not all) ships, on return from deployment, direct family (limited to two people) can cruise on the ship with their sailors as they return to their homeport.  For Pacific fleet, the cruise is typically Pearl Harbor to San Diego and/or sometimes San Diego to Washington state.  For the Atlantic fleet from Mayport, LF to Norfolk.  Not all ships do this and you must be sponsored by your sailor on the ship....there is a small fee for food.  Until about half-way through deployment your sailor won't know if they will have a Tiger Cruise.

Welcome to Rosa! When my daughter enlisted in 2005 and left for RTC, I had virtually no knowledge of Navy life or how the Navy did things. By the time her PIR rolled around, I was starting to get the hang of things and understand some of the language and abbreviations, but still felt like a fish out of water when dealing with most topics concerning the US Navy. When my son enlisted and left for Great Lakes in 2007, I got serious about trying to learn as much as possible about the Navy. Now, several years into my journey, I’m blessed to say I have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) was on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and just reported to Helicopter Squadron Light-37 (HSL-37) in Hawaii after re-enlisting earlier this year. My daughter Kat is now a Navy veteran and was stationed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) as a Mass Communications Specialist. If Navy Dads were around in those days, it would have made my journey as a Navy parent much easier. I'm sure you'll find as useful, educational and informative as I have over the past few years. I hope you take the time to explore the site and make some new friends. Read the discussions and add your comments. Browse through the postings in the various groups or start a new one. If you have any comments, questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going sure to post them! In my experience someone here can answer your questions or concerns or can point you in the direction to find out. And Rosa this is a great place to brag as well! So join in, get active, and be sure to let us know how Alexis is doing! Please remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors and the fleet in mind. On the right or starboard side of every NavyDads page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link for some guidelines as to what we should not talk about in a public forum like

Play the following video for a brief introduction to We've made some cosmetic changes to the site since this video was made, but navigation remains the same.
