Tiger Cruise is a Navy-sponsored program in which friends or family members of sailors and Marines ride a ship during its last week of deployment. Tarawa and the embarked 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit are on a regularly scheduled deployment to the Western Pacific in support of maritime security operations and the global war on terrorism.
