part of the Caribbean cruise's scuba dive excursion to wreck RMS Rhone. 
very professional and efficient operation.  the brief are detail and with
interesting historical references.  very safe and environmental conscious.
we had 2 dives within span of 3 hours. saw turtle, a reef shark, a nurse
shark,moray eel, schools of fishes, cleaning station, jaw fish, secretarial
blenny, direct visual penetration of the wreck touching the lucky pothole
#26.  the corals are in decent shape consider it is a very popular dive
sites.  it is a very good dive trip considering being a cruise ship
excursion.  it is a bit pricey because of booking through the cruise ship,
but it will guarantee you won't left behind of the ship if the operation
ran into delay.
