Default Questions for experienced certified Scuba Divers

Questions for experienced certified Scuba Divers. This will be our first cruise and all are certified divers. Do you suggest bringing our own reg packs, masks, fins and snorkel's or just rent them for the dive excursion's we choose? We're sailing the Glory Eastern Caribbean July 07.

Bring your own Masks and regulators. If you have an odd size fin and you have the room bring those. Snorkles are "cleaned" as far as you know. If your have room for your fins, you might as well bring your snorkle.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

Bring you own gear if you can, but the rental gear us usually okay. I have a hard time fitting my mask though.

I always take my mask because I like how it fits. I always take my snorkel because I know whose mouth its been in. I may or may not take my fins, depending on how much room I have in the luggage. I also bought a new shortie wetsuit so I'll probably take that too. But I would not take a BC or regulator or tank or weight belt, as those are generally included in the price of a dive.
