We will be sailing out of Tampa, and I figure that most everyone on board will be American and used to seeing soldiers in uniform, but I dont want to cause a "stir".

Here are a couple of photos that I was able to find. I could not find his exact one. It will be sorta like these, only with the Field Artillery colors (red) on the lapel.

On one cruise we had a group officers from the Canadian RCMP.
They wore there Red Serge dinner outfits (not the uniform you see in pictures ) on formal night. That really made the formal night stand out.

Ships Sailed:

SS Ithaca , Volendam , Mariner of the Seas (x2) , Veendam , Coral Princess , Island Princess (x3) , Emerald Princess,Sapphire Sapphire (x3),Diamond Princess
