Hi , 


I work in merchant ships , which sails all over the world .  In April 2017 , My ship was docked at Tacoma , But I wasn't not allowed to Step ashore as I didn't have a crew visa (C1D) that time . But my girlfriend Came on board to visit me  .  


Now I am applying for a B1/B2 to visit my girlfriend . 


In DS 160,Should I mention say that I visited U. S or not ? 


I didn't step into US soil but my ship was docked in US port.

I would answer "yes" to that question. Your ship was in US waters and you docked at a US port. It would make it easier if you said "yes" especially if questions are asked about your girlfriend and when you met, etc. If you initially said "no" and then you are asked about her and how you met and you mention the ship in Tacoma it is only going to get messy.
