Circa 1962 - The famous or infamous Guantanamo Bay Hilton. This is an ammo barge that submariners converted into a five-star hotel with outstanding dining facilities and lounge accommodations.

During daily ops the night duty section stays in port to sleep in and receive any guest. 

In the evening the barbeque grill is lite and the feast begins.
