[None]This Belize Aggressor was fresh out from major mechanical overhaul
and redecoration. The crew was phenomenal. Food was varied and good except
for the fact that meats tended to be overcooked. On the other hand, I had
the best Mexican dinner I have ever had on board. There was variety and a
willingness to please. 

The Cabins were clean, reasonably spacious with good water pressure in the
showers and functioning, clean heads. The bunks, however, I felt were the
ship's weakness. There was a large inferior bunk-I would guess about full
size, and a superior bunk that was clostrophobic and so narrow that a
sleeper could well roll off of it. The space between the two bunks would 
challenge a honeymooning couple. I would suggest the upper bunks be removed
and replaced with a higher storage rack that gives sufficient sitting room
for the entire lower bunk.

Many of our divers were seasoned and well-travelled. A group of us
informally rated the trip as a 4-5 out of 10 basis. What bothered us most
was that we went to the same 10-12 dive sites as the Nekton and Belize
Dancer, just shifting from buoy to buoy each day. And the viz was often too
 cloudy for pristine photography. After all, this is the second largest
reef in the world, and it seemed to most of us that they could develop
better dive sites at more distant locales that could be used to shift away
from local weather factors. Actually one of our best dives was on a site
the captain had never been to before and was exploring.
