U.S.S. SCHENECTADY (LST 1185)
May 17 - 24, 2015
FINALLY, AN OPPORTUNITY TO GATHER TOGETHER ONCE AGAIN
If you attended the 2008 Skinny-T Reunion in Myrtle Beach, SC you remember the great time, good food, fascinating sights and scenic tours that were enjoyed by the ship's company and wives.. Stan Civick played a major role in organizing that event. Sadly, Stan is not with us this time around. His brother, Mark, who attended the 2008 reunion, is hoping to have another great reunion--this time a cruise. Mark has made the initial arrangements for the cruise ship, the lowest prices and the best possible trip itinerary.
Here's our ship:
Navigator of the Seas
In order to be fair to everyone, the port of departure
is half-way between the East and West Coasts.
How about some comparisons:
MS Navigator of the Seas USS Schenectady (LST-1185) Gross tonnage - 138,279 tons Gross tonnage - 8,550 tons (full loadl) Length - 1,020 feet Length - 522' 3" (overall) Max beam - 157.5 feet Max beam - 69' 9 1/2" (max) Draft - 29 feet Draft - max aft (full load) - 16' 3" Cruising Speed - 22 kts Speed - 27 kts. (Max. ) Beat 'em here!
Here's where we're going:
Here's the itinerary:
Here are the prices:
Atrium (inside) Cabin - $635.62 pp
Ocean View Cabin - $835.62 pp
Balcony $925.62 pp
Large Balcony - $929.62 pp
Junior Suite w/ Balcony - $935.62 pp
All rates include port tax and Gov. fees.
Rates for 3rd + 4th in cabin available upon request.
Also we can reduce rates depending on the number of people going.
Here's a tip: Why pay $200 more to see the endless ocean when you can
save money and walk 50 feet and watch the ocean, any time you desire.
Here's what to expect:
Georgetown, Grand Cayman
We already have five families signed on. The more we get, the cheaper the rates.
We're all getting a little older and there probably won't be many more get-togethers to enjoy with fellow ship mates.
This is really a wonderful opportunity for you and your family to join with Skinny-T families for a wonderful time in the sun.
