My last cruise was an Around-the-World cruise onboard USS Coral Sea (CV-43). Departed NAS Alameda and visited Subic Bay, Singapore, Pattya Beach Thailand, Hong Kong; transited the Suez; then visited Naples (twice) and Cannes France. Spent time in the Gulf of Sydra when Ghaddafi threatened to sink the USS Eisenhower, spent more time off of Lebanon, and even more in the Caribbean.

Did an "Around the World" cruise 1970-71 on the USS Wainwright DLG-28. Left from Naval Base Charleston, SC in 1970, traveled through the Panama Canal, served in Vietnam, Korea, Japan, became a Shellback, and took the long way back home to Charleston via the Philippines, Malaysia, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean.

Oh yeah forgot we just got out of the Suez when the Stark was hit. A pretty tense time for all. We were ready and couldn't believe they didn't turn us around.
