UW Photo Comments The boats underwater camera was out of order. Take your own camera if you want uwp's. They were suppose to send me some stock video of the dive sites but they never did. They wouldn't even answer my e-mails.

Comments This Ship does St. Kitts,St Eustaius and Saba. Total of 27 dives offered. Most of underwater coral was in good condition,especially the marine park at St Eustatius. Saba dive sites are deeper but also very nice. Most of marine life Macro type. Very easy diving.
I would recomend doing the afternoon land tours of each island, They were very informative. One of the high points of the trip.
The ship's crew was in transition so many of them are gone now. They were helpful but lacked the enthusiasm were use to from other live-aboards.The cabins were clean and kept up daily. The food was just ordinary menu items nothing to write home about. Maybe the new cook will be better.Over all it was a good trip.
