I cannot enter Liveaboard above, but the Caribbean Explorer is a

The Caribbean Explorer II is an older boat, and cabin accomodations are
tight.  The room are 6'-2" wide and are typically the width of a queen
bed plus the width of a sink, leaving little floor area.  The shower/toilet
are in a separate enclosure, about 30" wide.  If you desire deluxe
accommodations, this is not the boat.

The common area is populated by three permanent table, with a counter for
serving.  While it sufficed for a group of 19 that got along well, it did
not have anywhere to enjoy the trip by oneself.  This was not an issue for
my wife and I, but there were several complaints among the group.

The diving was mediocre.  High winds caused lower visibility, and made for
rough entries and exits.  About half the dives we completed were in
moderate currents, especially on the surface, with 35 foot visibility.
