As the start of Cruise-A gets closer, students are busy all around the ship getting ready for departure. One of the tasks that must be completed is loading all the stores (all of the food and equipment that will keep the ship running). On Maintenace, the 2nd and 4th class Midshipmen are working with the ship’s crew using the crane to load goods that are delivered on the MMA pier. Other projects around the ship include starting all the engines for testing, painting, and preparing the ship store for business. The ship has come alive once again and the students and crew cannot wait to be underway!
