Comments This trip dove at St Kitts, Stacia & Saba, and ended in St Maarten. Had a good land tour of Stacia; Saba land tour cancelled due to weather. Diving was average for the Caribbean, not exceptional; the draw of this trip is the variety.
Dive operations were well run. Staff was very good. Accommodation was poor - for example tiny stateroom shower with no temperature control, broken stateroom fittings that could not be repaired with materials on board.
Ship showed deferred maintenance problems throughout trip. Had the feeling staff were trying hard under difficult conditions.
