Anyone know anything about staying at Navy Lodge in Pearl ?

Comment by David Porter Calhoun on November 3, 2015 at 7:12pm

I am excited to be on this Tiger Cruise! This will be the trip of a lifetime. As far as the Mai Tai, I'd rather have a Rusty Nail, but I will not turn a good rum concoction away.

Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on October 12, 2015 at 2:49pm

If I were going on this cruise I would buy you all a Mai Tai as a way of saying thank you for supporting NavyDads.com and being great Navy dads!

Comment by Jim Bair on October 12, 2015 at 10:21am

Mai Tai in Hawaii??  I'm in. That's an easy decision.

Comment by Phil Shannon on October 9, 2015 at 8:03pm
I'm jealous of you guys! I think there may be a Hawaii trip in my future, but not soon enough

I am also going to be on the TC and I can't wait to sip on that Mai Tai :)!
