Question:   What is a Repeating Cruise?
Answer:   A repeating cruise is when you are requesting more than one cruise in the SAME year that is doing the exact same work in the exact same location. The best example of this is for the Bermuda-Atlantic Time Series (BATS), where there are monthly cruises that go to the same two stations to do the same scientific work.

If you are requesting one cruise for multiple different years, then you should fill out a separate request for each year. You can use the "duplicate" request link or button to speed up the process. This is only because it will help ship schedulers keep track of requests for each year.
