The Marines and Friends Cruise is the natural extension of our love for cruising and the US Marine Corps. Hosted by Marine Veterans, and their wives, we set out to Celebrate the US Marines Corps Birthday each year with fellow Marines, their families, and friends.
Since 2011, we have sailed the Caribbean sharing experiences and creating memories with all Branches of the service, and we have picked up lasting friendships along the way. All are welcome to join and experience fellowship, fun filled days and Traditional Cake Cutting Ceremony celebrating the US Marine Corps Birthday.
