There were many spots on the dive table, plenty for the many divers with
big cameras.  In addition, they supported the small cameras and starting
underwater photographers well.  Excellent support for diving with camera...
they hand to you after you are in water, and retrieve prior to loading on

The crew of the Dewi was fantastic.  They made the trip and ensured that we
had what we needed... of course the hot water showers on deck after the
dive and the warm towels and neck rubs were "over the top" for us
long time divers.  I have come to call this type of superb service
"Valet Diving."  Thanks to the crew, the diving was easy and the
choices were many on types of dives:  muck - modestly deep [90-100 feet],
shallow, large currents, or stable currents, warm water [two days of
slightly colder water - 78-79 degrees], night dives, and just plain fun and
rewarding.  The Dewi cruises in the Coral Triangle and makes a special
effort to show off the area between Flores and Komodo islands.  The master
divers [Wendy,  Yan, Andre & Risko] ensured that the adventure was full
of brilliant color, phenomenal diversity and surprises around each corner. 
From the first dive, the nutibranches, the turtles, coral, colorful fish
and diverse rays kept showing up "on call".  The beauty and
breadth of scenery was everywhere, above and below the water.  The travel
was a pleasure as the ship is magnificent and the large rooms make the
living delightful [large shows].  One days diving was special as the
current ran reliably by Crystal Rock with the manta, white tips, napoleon
wrasse, spotted eagle rays and turtles were puzzled by the ackward souls
from above the water trying to pretend they were comfortable while
screaming past the coral in a modest current.  Four dives a day for nine
days enables the soul to identify with the ocean's patterns and truly lets
you relax as you park in natural calderas overnight.  You can not beat the
Dewi crew support, the Dewi size and room, and the Coral Triangle diving. 
I will go back!
