Cruise lines should credit Navy veterans for days sailed on ships

I was on a naval destroyer during the Vietnam war, home ported in Yokosuka Japan for 4 years (total cruise days 1460) We sailed to ports in Australia, New Zealand, Pago Pago, Guam,Hawaii, sailed up the Siagon River in Viet Nam, sailed to Korea during the Pueblo Crisis. Our mission was called the West Pac cruise. Picture of my first cruise ship

Awesome! Thanks for sharing.Happy

I was in the USCG for 4 years. Mostly search and rescue. My last Billiet was on a 378 Cutter. Now a days with my career now I board more cargo ships and tankers than I do cruise ships.

My father was on an escort ship in WWII in the Pacific.

This be awesome for Air Force vets with the airlines.

Hey, look! You answered some of questions from a different thread. WOW! Just think, you'd have the top status on every cruise line! I like ctav's suggestion for airlines, I'd ride on my DH's coattails. Wink

Sure would make it easier on me too!!!Wink

Thank you for your service.

Just wondering, do former cruise ship crew, staff or officers get any credit for days cruised when they leave and want to cruise as guests?

What about army vets?

That should never be aloud! Angry
