Aloha to the USS New Jersey (Part 3)

From USS New Jersey's Twitter Feed (link)

My son's scout troop stayed aboard the Battleship New Jersey the night before the snow.   It was too windy to raise the flag on deck in the morning.  So they jumped right into breakfast!

Hubby took pictures throughout the overnight encampment, trying to find the perfect images for this blog.  

The ship's silver is locked up ... 

.... while the china set is more accessible.

Gotta love the art work!

Each hallway is labeled in this fashion ...

... and here's the translation!

Thank you, Battleship New Jersey, for your distinguished service!  I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash to one randomly selected commenter.  To enter the giveaway,

  1. I always get seasick, so I'm not sure I could do any job looking green...

  2. While I enjoy cruises, I don't think I could work on one. I'm an introvert and would find that constant interaction very stressful.

  3. I would like to run bingo on a cruise ship.

  4. I too would love to help out with games of any kind.

  5. The dealer in the casino of a cruise ship love the occupation haha
