All Tales in this booklet are true!


The Marines and Friends Cruise

A short story:


Not too long ago, well, over five years ago, but it seems like yesterday, anyway, lets say once upon a time, three Marines went to sea with their wives, aboard a Norwegian Cruise Ship, a floating resort that departed Florida and visited four ports during a splendid week without the worries of daily life back home.   The men enjoyed the lazy days at sea, the ladies enjoyed sun-bathing and shopping.   We throughly enjoyed the dining, the shows, the night clubs and going ashore to explore all the Caribbean has to offer.    Along the way, we met other veterans who also enjoy these awesome cruise vacations.    


We decided that we should encourage our own family, friends, and the families of our friends, as well as the friends of our friends to all cruise together.


The Marines and Friends Cruise and CruiseUSMC (one in the same) was created as Tony Tijerina and Jeff Covert were sitting in the airport waiting to board our flight to our ship.   Maybe we should have told our wives, Nancy and Ginny, but they have been great.   What started out as an email to our family and friends has now evolved to an online presence with a web site and a facebook group.


This short booklet, is designed to answer as many questions about this years cruise.
