Default Scuba classes on Explorer


Trying to plan for my September cruise on the Explorer......

I was wondering if anyone has taken the scuba classes on the explorer? Is this a fullblown class or just a discovery class? I have always been interested in taking a scuba class to get certified. I just don't know what is offered on board. Also, does it take up all your time and is there a cost.

I've never taken the course myself but it looks like a good time. We were on the Explorer last year. I would say you probably end up with more than a "resort course" but don't know if you could get an open water certificate.

I have always stopped short of signing up because it looks like it takes up a lot of your time on board ship.

I sailed on both Voyager and Explorer, they claim you can be PADI Certified by the end of the week. I am a certified SCUBA diver and it takes two open water dives with your instructor to demonstrate your skills in order to be completely certified. I also had to do a fresh water test. I would call RCCL and ask if you become an "Open Water Diver" under PADI.


Explorer is a great ship, my advice is to go to the "Time Warp" game in Studio B earlier so you can be chosen to get on. Its like Family Double Dare if you've ever seen it.
