Traveling with my husband on Massdam, Holland America, Western Carribean, March 18th, 2001. Looking for a scuba diving buddy. I am novice PADI open water certified. Want to scuba in Jamacia, Grand Cayman, and/or CoCoCay. Let me know if you need a scuba buddy on this cruise. Karen
Karen, you probably don't have to find a buddy before you leave. If you go with the ships dive excrusions, there will be other novice divers going too and they will buddy you up with one. But, I recommend you try to make dive arrangements on your own. That is what I did on my cruise in Dec aboard RCI Grandeur of the Sea. I think that I saved money and I know that I got better, uncrowded dives than the cruise excursions. You might want to check this message board <http://www.scubadiving.com/talk/list.php?f=1> check the archives, then post your own questions concerning diving while on a cruise.
