My Plebe-No-More is on his first cruise. He is on the Nitze in Norfolk. Originally he told us that his leave block would be from June 27 to July 25. Two weeks ago he said they increased the length of his cruise, even though the ship is currently in drydock, and they will only be taking a week-long trip up to Maine and back. The new leave dates were July 8 to July 25 (actually 23rd because he has to be back two days early to prepare for YPs). Today, he texted to say the cruise might be extended another week, shortening his leave to just one week. This kind of makes it tough to make summer plans. Anyone have any idea how acurate this info is? Will they really only give him one week of summer break? My enlisted son gets more time off than that!
