"We're afraid to tell you that our wonderful skiing cruise to the Caribbean is in fact a figment of our imagination for April Fools Day!
If you would like to take an actual cruise, please see our cruise deals or if you would like to take an actual skiing holiday, please see our ski deals."
It looked about as legitimate as a "Free Carnival Cruise" postcard addressed to "Or Current Occupant".

I was thinking more of a dedicated tank. If you have 2 sea days before a port thats plenty to get certified I should think.
Not certified, but could get you past the pool part and your open water dives could then be done in the port....but you will need an instructor...but would be a good money maker for the lines in that if they sign an agreement with someone like PADI and make it work ina port or two...the biggest issue is your open water dives have to be in very confined water area and you need safty divers with the instructor...plus, I dont want to be on a reef with brand new divers who are bouncing all over stiring the silt up why not get certified prior to your cruise and get some dives in so you too can enjoy reef exploring?
It's hard enough to play mini-golf in a 20 knot wind

Does anyone remember years ago, there were some over the top renderings of futuristic cruise ship pictures posted? The one that I remember, had like a tram, that moved you around the ship, but... the tram was outside of the ship!!! Oh my!
Some offerrings onboard and on private islands now, for early day cruisers must seem totally amazing!
Trip, with her book & tea!

as soon as i read the "one time offering" that made me suspicious, i mean what cruise line would spend $$$$$ to retro-fit a ship for one cruise?
In regards to SCUBA certification, it used to be, not sure if this still applies, but if you took your classroom at home you could take your open water on the cruise.
