You are flown to regional center to complete oath and get fingerprinted.
You wait at home for MMD card to come in.
Once it comes back you are flown to MD for a week and then to HI right to your first assignment.
Thats how the recruiter explained the process to me.
I just found something online at this link (http://188.8.131.52/employment/nclamerica/faq.htm
) that states you go directly from Piney Point to your first ship-assignment, so that all sounds about right. I have to call my recruiter today and find out for sure.
