Default C750 and underwater kit PT-018

I am going on a cruise in Jan and am considering purchasing the PT-018. I was thinking it would be good for keeping the camera safe in different environments like sand, dust, spashes and even at around people and food. Plus The more fun part tryint to take pictures while snorkeling. I am not sure if any pics will come out without a good flash underwater. What do you guys think?

Did you buy the underwater housing? How did your pictures look? I am thinking of purchasing the underwater housing myself so I am especially eager to hear your opinions. Thanks!

Yes, me too. How does it work with the housing?

I'm going snorkeling in Hawaii in May and might buy the housing.

My concern is focusing underwater. What would be the best focus setting? Would it be best to use auto everything, as sometimes things swim by fast and you don't have time to play with a lot of settings?

And by the way, I found this site which shows people have had some success with this camera underwater using nothing more than the internal flash (check it out):
