Comments [None]Was scheduled to go on the Roqual, but because of "maintenance" issues and probable partial bookings, guests from the Roqual were combined with the Pilot for this trip. Itinerary was modified to accommodate both groups. The diving at Medio reef was good, and the corals were healthy. The food was good, crew did an excellent job and there were no major complaints from me. The floor of the cabin did need a better vacuuming as there was a need to clean along the edge of the walls and under the beds. Unfortunately, I suffered a severe reverse ear squeeze and as a result punctured an eardrum. So I missed the last 3 days of diving. I missed the diving at Cay Sal and had to listen to the other divers reports of many sharks at the blue holes. I compliment the captain for his concern over my condition. So I guess I'll have to rebook in the near future to see for myself.
