Booked the boat back in April, 2009 for 12 pax.  Was told there would be a
new boat by 2010 for 18 pax, so we booked another couple.  The new boat is
still not yet available, so 2 couples who didn't know each other, ended up
sharing the quad (all older than "sleep over" age)!  
Checked with Aggressor before end of year, and was assured there were no
maintenance issues with this older boat (per Larry Conner at Aggressor). 
So...the air conditioner did not work part of the week for 2 rooms (rm 3
& 4).  The shower in rm 2 was unusable.  The porthole in the quad
leaked during our runs in choppy seas. The Aggressor office assured me
there were hairdryers on the boat, which was not even remotely correct. 
Dietary restrictions for one group member were honored about 70% of the
time.  The hot tub was inoperable, and had been since Christmas.  The
nitrox filter was limping along, so the % in the fills decreased as the
week went on. 
The Aggressor DID give the 4 sharing the quad a bit of a rebate, and DID
comp us on the nitrox, but nitrox was to be gratis for us for being on the
older boat.
There were 5 staff for 14 passengers, when there are normally 6.  Nestor,
Kris, Marna, & John were fabulous!
The diving was a surprise - nice corals d sponges. I would so this trip
again, but ONLY on the new boat.
p.s. Southern Canopy zip lining at the end of the week was a highlight!
