Thanks Billy. I fly out of Huntsville on Monday afternoon and arrive at Gatwick on Tuesday morning. We have the afternoon off and then a press supper in London that evening. The following morning (July 29) we board buses and head to Southampton for the naming ceremony and 2-night preview cruise. We leave the ship on July 31, with a tour of Stonehenge and other sites as we head back to London for a final hotel night right in the middle of Westminster. I then fly home at noon on August 1. That will be the killer...leaving Heathrow at noon and arriving at Dulles at 3pm local time. Then I still have the flight home to HSV. I never had problems with jet lag during my military years but then I was a youngster back then.
