Comments Poor service overall. Weather precluded about 1/2 the dives, and boat captain did nothing to appease. Company provided no response to their questionnaire. Only reasonable respite from bad weather is to go to your bunk--which is not any bigger than a sleeping bag. Rooms were either too cold, or lacked AC and became too warm and stuffy. Overall bad experience, and I wouldn't go back.
