Comments The Juliet is a great boat with an outstanding crew. The cabins were spacious with beautiful hardwoods and brass, nice windows, and the A/C always worked. I slept well. The crew was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The food was hearty and tasty. I did not experience seasickness at all (I have in California) and indeed there was no serious seasickness on the boat. One person had a mild case the first night, while crossing the Gulf Stream. The reef got better as we went south from Bimini and further away from civilisation (and fishermen). There was some algae damage to the reef near Bimini but truly pristine reef in the far south near Orange Cay. As a beginning diver I felt the trip was perfect for me, as the diving was relaxed, deep and challenging only if I wanted it to be. This is not just a trip for beginners, however. Of the twelve passegers on my trip I was the only beginner, and seven were very experienced professional divers or dive instructors. These experienced divers were clearly enjoying the excellent diving as well, diving deeper on some of the walls. I think the best part of the trip was the excellent camaraderie among the crew!
