SEATTLE, medical Wash. – As part of Fleet Week during this year’s Sea Fair, esophagitis Navy Morale, pharmacy Welfare and Recreation (MWR) is hosting guest cruises aboard U.S. Navy, Canada Navy and U.S. Coast Guard vessels Aug. 3.

The deadline for applications is Thursday, July 7, 2011. Application forms, along with guest cruise policies and procedures can be found online at http://www.navylifepnw.com/site/217/Seafair.aspx.

Guest cruises are open to all U.S. citizens, eight years of age and older. Cruises depart from the Port of Seattle and may last from six to eight hours, including boarding and disembarking.

Cost for this exciting day at sea is $20 and includes lunch on-board the ship as it cruises around Puget Sound.

Transportation to and from the departure point is not included. Space is limited on guest cruises, so all applications received will be processed at random.
