MMA Cruise 98 Mailing Addresses

Mailing Information

The mailing addresses listed below are for the 1998 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 (along with our port agents) strongly discourage the sending of packages to cadets/crew, especially in a foreign port. The reason being, all packages end up at customs where they are inspected and a tax is imposed. This process takes several days and must be handled at the customs office by the addressee.
