Massachusetts Maritime Academy cadets are packing up their gear as they get ready to embark on the 2019 Sea Term. The cadets will spend nearly two months at sea aboard the T.S. Kennedy.
MMA President, Admiral Francis McDonald says the Kennedy will depart Buzzards Bay this Saturday morning with ports of call scheduled for San Juan, Puerto Rico for a two-day stay on the island. The ship then departs for the British Virgin Islands for another two-day trip in Tortola.
The Kennedy will also make a stop in Barbados for another two days before heading to the trip’s final port visit in Miami.
The Kennedy visits the Caribbean three out of every four years, while every one-in-four years it travels to the Mediterranean Sea.
