Default Veterans on 4/13/07 Carnival Liberty

I was wondering if there are any veterans sailing on this cruise and if Carnival sets aside a time and place for veterans to meet for socializing and greeting one another. On other lines, I have experienced some nice get togethers with fellow veterans. I have had the pleasure of meeting veterans from a Pearl Harbor survivor to people serving in the present day conflicts.

It sure is a long way from the jungles of Vietnam to a luxury cruise ship.

Hello Manny I'm booked on the Liberty on 4/14/07, and am a U.S.M.C. veteran. I too agree that it's a long way from Vietnam to the Liberty. I've attended Vets gatherings aboard RCCL ships, but never aboard a Carnival ship that I can remember. Maybe we can get them to give us a meeting room and put it in the Caper? This will be a family reunion cruise for me, with 3 brothers attending (all vets). Also there is a large group of motorcycle riders from here in Lakeland, Florida that will be aboard, and lots of them are vets as well.
I agree that I've talked to some really interesting vets, both current, and as far back as WWII. Very interesting people.

See you aboard,
Ken

Hi Ken:
It appears our posts are crossing paths again..... in one of the previous posts you mentioned about "tipping a cool one" maybe some other veterans can join us also.

I will try to contact the social hostess on the Liberty to see if we can have a meeting area and to get this posted in the Capers.

Army vet (Vietnam 66/67)


PS. Luann-thank you for your comment.

I wish all my fellow veterans a wonderful cruise. I am sad to say that I will be unable to join you. Due to a death in the family, we have had to cancel our cruise. I certainly hope to meet you all some day on another ship, another cruise.

Please post how this cruise turned out, as I might want to reschedule this same cruise in the future.

Happy Easter
Manuel

I'm not sure about the Liberty but on the Legend they had a veteran's get-together on each cruise and it was announced in the Capers. Have a great cruise!
