We were on the Nekton recently for the Southern Belize itinerary.

The critters were thick, lots of big fish..........saw nursesharks, morays,
turtles, huge groupers, cuda etc plus tons of tropicals. No problem diving
air 3-5 dives per day. 

Food was filling, staff was very attentive and helpful and the cabins were
good sized....appreciated all the windows and the private bath.  

Only negative: The Princess Hotel where we waited for our evening pickup
for the boat smelled really bad and there was no hot water....not very
neat, we were glad we spent the previous night somewhere else.  Also Belize
City is not a good place to visit, walked a good chunk of it and it was
pretty grungy and dismal....great place to catch a liveaboard out of tho!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Pilot and considered the special
price on our January departures a good value for Caribbean diving.
