Great crew-most dive masters were enthusiastic.  Weather was not
cooperative but crew did the best they could. They even have turn down
service and hot beverage service to quarters in the morning.  The last dive
briefing was for the wrong dive site.  Weather was such that the captain
probably thought he was at the site next door.  When we went down, current
was so strong (not so on other dives), my buddy and I had to resurface and
so did another couple.  Everyone else used 1500 psi to reach the mooring
pin, hung out for about 5 minutes with nothing to see, then resurfaced. 
Nobody did the second dive at that site.  We understood the mistake due to
the weather and nobody was upset.  Overall, Peter Hughes is a great
liveaboard.  The dive facilities are marvelous with plenty of room,
although the boat was not full this trip.  Cabins have plenty of room with
private bath,king bed and very nice, large picture window.  Food was better
then expected (Jerry is a great chef) and with very good service.  We
really enjoyed the Chilean wine! We will repeat with Peter Hughes and would
highly recommend this Belize trip!
