Comments The Ship's air conditioning was broken when we arrived. We were not allowed to enter our rooms for several hours. All night we 'cooked' while the noisy repair technicians fixed the problem. On day #1 everyone was exhausted. One of the head's was broken for part of the trip; inconveniencing several of the divers.

Divers were herded into the water in a group. No one was allowed into the water except at the designated times.

The food was great, and the crew was personable. The diving was spectacular; however, for the price I expected a lot more diving freedom!
