We enjoyed the trip so much we (and another passenger) rearranged our
travel plans and booked the following cruise when we learned space was

Don't know what the crew could have done to make the entire experience more
enjoyable. Every request was accommodated as much as possible. Dives were
rearranged as needed to take advantage of the best possible weather/current
conditions. Night dives were always available even if only one person
wanted to go. The skiff drivers were very responsive to pick you up shortly
after surfacing.

The cruise director, Sonia Goggel kept everything running perfectly and
presented very informative mini-seminars during the morning surface
intervals on reef life. The dive briefings were very comprehensive. Captain
John, Sonia and the entire crew made you feel as though we were sharing

As sailors and yacht owners, we could only hope our two-year-old yacht had
as little head odor, diesel smell and lack of typical boat smell as the

Accommodations were extremely comfortable. The salon was gracefully
transformed after every meal to a comfortable social / educational area.

This was our first live-aboard and we are concerned that the high level of
this start leaves room for disappointment on other vessels. We feel we
received more than our moneys worth and then some. The diving was
spectacular and the service superb. We would have stayed for a third cruise
if it had been possible! 

Thank you to all on the Nai'a!
