Comments The crew was excellent! The food was very good....some of it not really my thing but it was all good. I was introduced to several new fruits...who was the first guy to try this? Accomodations were very nice. Our room was quite large for a live aboard. Adequate closets and storage space. AC worked very well! More then enough beverages and snacks.
The diving was nothing less then spectacular! The entire reef was covered with life...very few looked dead. No where to put a finger to steady your self to take photos. We only saw one Manta ray but he put on quite a show. Pigmy sea horses could be found on many of the dives. Anemones and anemone fish where every where. Nudis on almost every dive. There were only significant currents on a few of the dives. Most of the dives were very easy and relaxing. The current at Carnival Rock was unbelievable. I fought the current for awhile and since I was also having problems with my camera I cut the dive short. The tender was there almost as I broke the surface.
All of the diving was from two tenders. Seems like there were six divers in ours and 7 in the other one. We had a DM on every dive. You could follow them or strike out on your own. The only time the diving seemed crowded was when the DMs were showing us the pigmy seahorses. Other then that we were on our own. The boat crew were also very knowledgable about the islands we dove near. The Dragons were cool! We also visited a couple of fishing villages...very interesting.
As far as bad things....nothing. Our biggest complaint on the whole trip was the pushy street vendors on Bali. Tourism is way down and the vendors are hungry...they will follow you into the cab to make a sale. Reminded me of Cozumel when the pod people are in town.
I will go back and will reccomend this destination to others.
