1. You can dive up to the last day of your vacation!

You can dive on the last day of a cruise ship dive trip if you are driving your car to the cruise ship port, and, if you are flying out 24 hours after the end of your last dive; then you are still in good shape. This is a great reason to dive from a cruise ship!

We recently crammed a three-night cruise into a weekend; we dove the last day of the cruise, finished the dive by 11:00 a.m., got off the cruise ship the next morning around 9:00 a.m. If we had to fly; by the time we would have gotten to the airport, we would have been 24 hours since our last dive.

Next December, for New Year’s Eve, we are organizing a cruise ship dive trip. The first and the last day of the eight-day cruise are days at sea. The first day at sea will allow us to get organized, and the last day at sea will allow us to do wind down and relax from four days of driving all over the Caribbean.

For anyone flying out the same day as disembarkation; they will be ready to go no matter how early their flight is!

2. Other than your dives; there’s nothing to plan.

You don’t have to plan for hotels, you don’t have to plan breakfast, snacks, lunch, snacks, tea, and dinner for every day of the trip.

Also, you don’t have to worry about clearing customs at every port. Everything is taken care of by the cruise line in every port.

3. There’s lots more to do beyond diving.

Between the diving, depending on the age and interests of the divers in your group, there are dozens of activities for them after dive time. There’s an endless list; like bungee jumping, ice-skating, comedy shows, rock climbing, or dancing all night. It’s like a dive trip on land, only with a lot of added entertainment.

4. Less expensive than a flight and trip to a resort.

You are going to pay for the entire cruise ship dive trip about what lodging alone would cost you on land. Add in three meals a day, dives, and flights, and your cost has doubled

5. It’s a cruise!

You get the run of an entire ship! You get to go somewhere of the old-fashioned way, with civility and grace and views of the ocean for the entire voyage. So it’s not just a trip: it’s a voyage!

6. If the weather turns bad; you lose fewer dives.

Since you are driving at several different locations; if conditions deteriorate, one venue is shut out; you might still manage to get in your dives at the other islands. From land, if you were there for the week and the whole week is bad… That’s all you’ve got, all your dives cancelled. Since the ship moves; you might have to scrub one dive, but you get to salvage the other three.

7. Unlimited luggage, and no size or weight restrictions.

Planning a cruise ship dive trip means no worry about luggage! You certainly can’t say that about flying out of country! As many bags as you like, as much weight as you like, and whatever dimensions – all allowed.
