Since I am digital, the fact that there are no developing facilities
doesn't affect me.  Does have HD TV to view digital on.

The diving is good, the boat is set up great.  Only 12 passengers on a 65
ft boat (same size as Blackbeard, 1/2 the passengers -- I've done both
trips several times and have enjoyed both, so this is just for reference). 

We had excellent food and sun the entire week.  Including 3 meals off a
44lb Cobia that was caught on the trip.  They accommodated all of our food
needs with a smile!  

We did 3 to 4 dives a day depending on the day and the conditions.  We dove
with sharks, did drift dives along the wall, and night dives with turtles. 
I believe everyone on the boat had a great time, including the crew. 

This trip is a great value for your money!
