Jenine (our Dive Master) and Andre (our Captain) are very helpful and
accommodating if you needed or wanted any help with anything.  Dive
briefings by Andre were thorough and boat  rules and dive safety procedures
were well addressed.
We were allowed to dive our own profiles and make our own dive buddy teams.
 No dives were over 65 feet deep.  I felt that the dives were a bit pricey
at $120.00 for a double dive but Bermuda is expensive for everything.  The
giving of historic (frameable) summaries of the wrecks was a nice touch. 
The only really difficult part of our day was trying to get a taxi cab or a
bus back to our ship after diving.  The shop wouldn't call a taxi for you
so we had to flag one down each day from the road which could take more
than an hour.  Going to Bermuda by cruise ship is the most cost effective
way to dive Bermuda because hotels and food are extremely expensive.
