I see your in IA, you are so much closer then me.  I'm in LA (but not Cajun) so hopefully it will be this week.  We will have to meet at PIR.  Have you made reservations to stay anywhere yet?  We're staying at the Navy Lodge.  I'm writing every other day too. Just can't wait for a letter from my SR.

Just you wait. It's hard to describe how proud a feeling when that door opens and your son/daughter marches in! I'll never forget that moment.

I'll give you the short version of what a Tiger Cruise is and a link to our Tiger Cruise Group for more info.

When your Sailor is deployed overseas, at the end of their deployment the Navy offers their family the opportunity to experience a Tiger Cruise with them. Meaning, you get the chance to ride the ship back with your child when the ship is finally headed back to it's homeport. You will eat and sleep amongst the Sailor's during the length of the Tiger Cruise.

Example: My son was aboard the USS Ronald Reagan. When the Reagan would finish up it's deployment, it would make it's final port in Pearl Harbor. Parents and family members had the chance to fly to Pearl Harbor to catch the Tiger Cruise home, meaning they would ride the ship back with their Sailor for 7 days until it reached it's homeport in San Diego, Ca. It gives parents the opportunity to get a glimpse of what Navy life is like for their Sailor while deployed.

from the intro to our Toger Cruise group:

Some of us are lucky and have either been on a Tiger/Family Day Cruise, are in the planning stages for one, or are hoping to sail with their sailor when they return from deployment. Share your hints and experiences here--- but remember that posting port dates and many details about upcoming events can pose a security use your good judgment about what you post here!



NavyDads mission is to Provide Support, Encouragement, and Knowledge to Sailors and their Families throughout their Journey together in the United States Navy.
