The food on board this week was some of the best I've ever had on a dive
trip...period. The chef, Ashley, was a culinary school graduate and it
showed! Plenty of variety, all very well prepared, with no complaints from
anyone on board.  
The diving is unique in that there are very few if any soft corals. Plenty
of hard stony corals. Tons of eels everywhere. Colorful fish made the dives
enjoyable, but no too many opportunities for wide angle photos. 
Crew on board were friendly enough, but some lacked any enthusiasm. The
dives were 'led' by a crew member, but sometimes they spent more time
taking their own photos rather than sharing discoveries with the divers. 
Tanks were always filled to at least 3000 psi, with consistent nitrox
blends all week. 
Service topside was great. When you would be sitting on the sun deck, for
example, someone was always asking if they could bring you something...a
refill or a snack.
