This trip was my seventh charter of the Cuan Law.  I always charter the
entire boat for my groups and that gives us the freedom to dictate when and
where we will dive, sail, etc.  The crew is extremely accomodating when it
comes to all of the above.  They will make suggestions, offer in depth
predive briefings and always have one of their divemaster/instructors in
the water with the divers.  They will lead if asked but otherwise divers
are allowed to set their own profiles, depths, times, etc.  The Cuan Law is
the most spacious and luxurious live aboard that I have been on, including
the Truk Odessy.  The rooms are large and spacious with large private
bathrooms.  The food is exceptional and the chef, Dan, is incredible. 
Steve, the British captain, is exceptionally well trained as a yacht
captain and is friendly, knowledgable and ready to show you any part of his
job that you are interested in.  The entire crew makes it a point to let
you know that they are there to make sure that you have a wonderful
experience and will do anything within their power to assure that happens. 
This particular charter started at St Maarten, took in St Barts, St Kitts
and Nevis, Saba, Sombrero and ended in the BVI's with two dives there and
the beach picnic at Virgin Gordo- the Baths- our final day.  I would rate
the Cuan Law and this trip a five star excellent dive vacation.
