This is the best liveaboard crew we've ever experienced.  Their smiling
faces and top-notch service were unparalled.  The boat is beautiful; rooms
are spacious and comfortable; storage is great.  The food is wonderful and
varied; Thanksgiving dinner was spectacular!

The diving is world-class and the dive briefs were comprehensive. Reef
preservation is stressed and wonderful between dive videos were shown
throughout the week educating divers to the things they were seeing and
great marine behavior emphasis to make everyone's dives more enjoyable. 
The crew handled divers and gear fantastically.

The new cruise directors, Grant & Sonia, easily stepped into the former
cruise directors' shoes without missing a beat.  They were enthusiastic and
related well with their Fijian crew.  Grant's trip DVD was fantastic.  We
enjoyed the crew's singing throughout the week and the Meke they did
on-board near the end of the week.

We thoroughly enjoyed this week of diving in Fiji.  It made a fabulous
start to a 6-week South Pacific Adventure.
