Note-I did not visit their shore operations so my ratings would be N/A if
that was a choice.  This also was arranged through Carnival Cruise Line's
Elation so I was even more skeptical.  I did call the operator beforehand
and they were very helpful.  This was by far and beyond the best crew on
the cleanest boat I have ever dove from.  They were very safety and
conservation oriented.  Our guide showed anyone who was interested each
unique creature and labeled it on his dive slate.  Let us dive a nice slow
dive that allowed us to soak in the incredible life on these remarkably
healthy reefs.  The operator picked us up right from the cruise ship and
took care of us as though we were still on the cruise. Provided great and
unlimited snacks and soft drinks between and after dives.  I would dive
with this operator again in a heartbeat although my next trip to Belize
will hopefully be on a live aboard.
