Carribean cruisers for diving buddies?

Interested in communicating with others that enjoy cruising in the Caribbean and diving during the ports of call.
Would like to find enough interested people to someday arrange a group for a cruise and our own dive charters.

I assume you’re talking about cruise ships and not cruisers who liveaboard a sailboat in the Caribbean.

I’ve done diving while on cruise ships in the med and Hawaii, usually booking my own but so far none in the Caribbean. There I prefer shore based or liveaboard. I wanted to dive in Alaska but my wife chickened out :(

We cruise several times a year (mostly in the Caribbean) and I always dive where I can. When in Cozumel I book through the Scuba Shack. They have smaller groups than booking on the ship and they will not take you to the same place every time. Last September when I was in Cozumel their was only 2 of us on the boat. We are doing an 8 day out of New Orleans on December 26th and a 14 day out of Tampa on February 26th.
I have booked a group before when you can get 8 cabins. You get on board credit and money back that makes the cruise cheaper. We always cruise on Carnival mostly from Galveston.
My wife does not dive but she does not mind shopping while I am diving.

We would love to find others to cruise with.

I began cruising again about a year ago and then discovered scuba. After certification last January, I’ve since logged 30+ dives during 6 cruises. I enjoy the overall cruise experience and it’s a great way to dive a variety of destinations. I’ve found some great deals and friends(none certified) join me about 50% of the time. I hop a ship every couple of months and would welcome an opportunity to join other divers. If I can be of any assistance in making this happen, let me know!
