Default SUB excursion question

Hello all.

I am a new cruiser with a question about an excursion offered by Royal Caribbean in Nassau. It is the SUB tour. It is described as a "seahorse shaped submarine." The website claims the device "propels you in your own personal underwater scooter at a depth of 15', around a coral reef and alongside colorful fish at a speedy two knots."

Even with this description, I am still a little vague on how this excursion plays out. What is the time duration of the actual underwater experience? I realize it is designed for one person, but can couples go simultaneously? I have been unable to find any other information about it, i.e. user reviews, photographs, etc., so I as hoping for some feedback.

Has anyone embarked on this excursion? Is it worth our while? At $119 a person I expect it to be pretty interesting....

Thanks for your help!

Go for it - fish need entertainment, too.

Yes, they do. I once had a clown fish file a complaint because he claimed my snorkeling was ruining his business.
