MMA Cruise 97 Mailing Addresses

The mailing addresses listed below are for the 1997 Winter Sea Term. All letters should be sent via air mail and posted at least seven (7) to ten (10) days in advance of the ship's arrival in port. There is no guarantee that letters arriving into a port after the ship has departed will be forwarded or returned. Therefore, nothing of significant monetary value should be mailed. We strongly discourage the sending of packages to cadets/crew, especially in a foreign port. The reason being, most local customs regulations prohibit delivery of plant, food, etc. In order for the officials to ensure compliance, many of the packages are opened for inspection thus delaying the delivery time, condition of the contents, etc...
