Our trip was aboard the Peter Hughes live-aboard Sun Dancer 2 out of Belize
City, Belize.  The boat was absolutely georgeous and very well equipped to
accomadate a fun filled week out on the open seas.  The food was plentifull
and very good throughout the entire week.  While this was our first
live-aboard trip, the rest of the passengers were seasoned veterens and had
been on many exotic live-aboard destinations all over the world.  We were
extremely excited to be on a trip where the focus was eat, sleep &
dive!!  The trip was a failure from a dive diversity standpoint from the
fact that the captain refused to move the ship around to various dive
locations due to concerns of weather although the seas were absolutely
calm!  I feel the captain was fairly new to the area and the boat so he was
in essence way over cautious given the great weather.  The concensus of the
entire guest aboard was displeasure due to lack of various sites visited. 
The captain reduced the whole value of a live-aboard dive vessel down to a
pathetic few dive sites.
