A wonderful trip. Crew was attentive to everyone's needs - beginner to
experienced.  Very complete dive briefings; divemaster John Skey would
always check out the site for current, surge, etc. before each dive. He
also would dive with us if we asked, otherwise we could dive our own plan.
Chris Finatti is a marine biologist and offered certification as
naturalist.  Class was excellent and she took us on several dives for fish
and creature ID, then reviewed sightings and IDs after the dive. Very
knowledgeable.  Rusty is a great cook.  Jimmy and Jen helped to keep things
running smoothly.  Captain John runs a very good ship and dove with us, as
 Rooms are nice with lots of storage space and a sink with running water.
Some with two bunks and some with a large bed. Three toilets and two
showers in the berthing area.  One shower on deck that is the one used
most.  Always plenty of hot water and fresh water. Big coolers of fresh
water and Gatorade always available and full. 
 Dive sites good choices.  Favorites include Rhone and Black Forest.  3
night dives available. Large turtles, lots of rays, plenty of fish and
critters to see and identify. A few small sharks.  Plenty to take pictures
of. Chris and divemaster John worked together and made a picture CD of the
trip for us to purchase if we wanted to. Topside & underwater pictures
of us as well as pictures of the ship and crew are included on it.
  I would definitely travel on the Juliet again. You do need to bring your
own deck towels.  Nitrox available.  4 dives a day. Shore excursion to the
Baths on Virgin Gorda, New Years Eve on Jost VanDyke. The only extra money
really necessary is taxi fare from and to the airport, port fee, entry fee
to the Baths, of course, trinkets.
