Default Carnival Magic November 11th balcony room Ultra Cruise.

So I'm a single straight white male looking for someone perferably a female that would like to join me on this cruise. 7 day cruise out of Miami. I have a balcony room on the Lido deck. I'm a chubby guy but am going to do some scuba diving in Cozumel and grand Cayman. Let me know. Also I did book it under an ultra cruise so priority boarding and check in free drinks in casino stuff like that thanks.
Chris

Default On the Same Cruise...

Hey Chris, not responding to your search, but I'm booked on this ship as well. I plan on doing the wreck dive in Grand Cayman, which one are you doing?

You guys don't need to pass up the diving at Mahogany Bay. My all time favorite!

Carnival uses Anthony's Key Resort for Roatan and the divemasters are awesome. Many dive sites just a short boat ride away from the dive shop. Actually, the new group Carnival uses for Belize come straight to the ship and they open a gangway for just the divers to get right onto the dive boat. It, however is a HAUL to get to the reef! 50 minute boat ride and if waters are rough, longer. It's a great dive, once you get there. It's pricey, though because of the overhead the dive shop has to invest to make it happen. ALL DAY THING! But you never step foot on the mainland, so no exposure to potential dangers there.
Roatan has some awesome marine life and the underwater topography is amazing. BIG green moray eels, giant grouper, rays,etc.

Good to know thanks for the info I plan on taking all my own gear. Don't like the thought of who could have been using it before me.

Unless you guys are set on wreck dive at Caymens, another of my favorites is s shore dive of Eden Rock. There's a dive shop about a 10 minute walk from the pier called Eden Rock(also the name of dive site). If you have a dive buddy, you just swim to buoy about 150 yards out and go down. Easy to navigate; just keep reef to your left. They charge $12.50 per tank and small fee for weights! Lots of marine life and neat caverns, swim through and arches. Took a new diver there in November and he saw a spotted eagle ray. Max depth I've seen there is 52 feet/ave is 35, so I've done dives as long as 70-75 minutes easy. You can do 2-3 tanks there for 2 people for under $100. I usually dive all four sites on Western Caribbean itinerary, so the cost there "balances" out the Belize expense. Also two neat scuba sculptures just down from Eden Rock near Sunset House
