Comments All cabins except one had upper/lower bunks. No ladder for upper bunk and, at 64, I'm not as agile as when younger. Had wet bunk 2nd night from mystery leak, but crew changed mattress & all. (Funny, the captain said something about moving to an empty cabin; but there wasn't one). Combined shower/head for cabin very small - much better to shower on rear deck & weather plenty warm enough to do so.
Food was very good and plentiful. Got up to 5 dives per day when not moving boat from one island to another. Most of the diving done at Little Cayman which was what I'd hoped. Diving in Grand Cayman isn't what it was and not many fish there anymore. Could've done without the "Stingray City" dive, but it was definitely a treat for the new divers. Enjoyed the "Kittywake", Cayman's newest artificial reef/ship wreck.
