Navy personnel were not called "mariners"; they were referred to as "seamen." Also, they rarely had "passengers," although there might be "supernumeraries" aboard. Merchant vesesels carried "passengers" and included them in "passenger lists." Are you sure your ancestor was on a navy ship?

I can’t tell when she was decommissioned. Also, I found a passenger list with a possible family member on it citing that they were a mariner and lists this ship in the notes. Any insight would be helpful.
