[QUOTE=smoker;188121]164 views and not one reply!?
She is a Bob Hope class ship.
The reason for asking is that 1) This will be my 1st MSC ship and 2) The first time I will be going to Diego Garcia. Ergo, I am clueless on what gear to take with me or what to pack in my sea bag. Asking at the hall got me generic replies.
A reply from somebody experienced would be appreciated.
I have never been on the Seay. I have been to Diego. It is warm weather there and the best view of it is as you leave. It has been quite some time since I was there and things may have changed. The saying is that Diego is great for AA. Alcoholics and Athletics. The ship I was on was shifted from the Med to Diego. Diego is the reason I left the job. You still need to experience Diego once in your career but don’t become a “gooner”. Gooners are sailors that spend their whole career in that frigging lagoon. I would take a Kindle and have it loaded up with a bunch of books. Other than that, take something that will occupy your time there. You can buy any necessities like toiletries on the island.
