My husband will be joining our son on the TC and I will be meeting the ship with our other son. He has been a little lax in getting the information to us about the process when he arrives. Is there a check in point, specific parking area, any way to stay connected to know for sure which day and time they will be arriving? This is our first experience and I am new to this site and all of the processes. I'm sure the information must be somewhere I just get overwhelmed with TMI!!!!
You will have to get information from your Sailor about anything referring to the ship. You can do it in code.. No one can give you information tho pertaining to the ship... I'm sorry and understand what you are saying but for the safety of the crew and ship It can not be given from anyone but your Sailor... I hope he contacts you soon!
Here is the ship's ombudsman website:
They will have a lot of info there. They will not disclose exact dates though. You will have to get those from your sailor.
The ship most likely will arrive in the morning. Last year the Navy rented USS Midway for us, there were thousands of people there the night before the homecoming. You will get a lot of information there.
Thank you! My husband is in contact with his son however the lines of communication for us are strained and he has never been very good about sharing important information. Still hasn't let his dad know all the final information about the Tiger Cruise! Go figure. Dad is approved and going just trying to get the updates from him are few and far between. I just found out from here there was a Facebook page for the ship and they've been gone how long! Not meaning to rant and rave just a little insight as to my needing information. I will check out the sight and keep praying for full disclosure closer to the arrival time. I do understand the need for confidentiality and the safety of our sailors ~ we all want our loved ones back to us safe and sound!
I was trying to send you a PM with some info, but was unable, because we have to be "friends" for sending and receiving PMs. Please email me at email@example.com and I will share the Tiger Cruise info with you. BTW, we are in Oregon also, in Keizer.
