2020 TS Kennedy Summer Cruise

TS Kennedy

Beginning on June 19, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) began operating the TS Kennedy (Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s ship) for a limited training cruise to provide shipboard training opportunities to a total of 50 cadets enrolled at federal and state maritime academies. Maine Maritime Academy was able to have 13 students and one faculty member join their peers from across the country to earn sea time and complete credentialing competencies as required by the USCG while the vessel transits from Mobile, Alabama to Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts in July.

Students aboard both vessels, the TSSOM and the TS Kennedy respectively, will be sharing their experiences via this blog. Updates will also be shared on our Facebook page.
