With homecoming around the corner, I've received some information about the upcoming Tiger Cruise. Unlike last deployment, the tiger cruise this year will happen as the ship is on their way back to Norfolk and those interested will need to contact their Sailor for sponsorship. The tiger cruise will be out of Naval Station Mayport, Fl in the middle of August. More information can be found below. It's important to note that the tiger cruise is designed for family members but NOT spouses. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or your Sailor for more information.
