Everyone else has reviewed the Pelagian with high marks.  I want to add
mine to the list.  Our trip was simply wonderful, and the crew (both on
land and on the boat) were perfect.  Sissy and Marco, the cruise directors
and dive leaders, were thoughtful, intelligent, fun and very experienced. 
They, along with everyone else made the trip special.
The diving set up was the best I've seen -- bc's and tanks stay in the two
chase boats and the crew filled them with lose hoses (makes so much sense).
 Nitrox available along with different size tanks. Either long or short
dives were fine -- those who finished early either waited in the chase boat
or got a ride back to the Pelagian.
Diving was interesting, especially the much diving around Bintun (sp).  Ask
to stay there longer -- one pier had soo much going on -- mandarian fish,
mating octopus (different species). too many moray eels -- all in about 8
feet!
Travel logistics continue to be excellent with the Wakatobi crew and the
chartered airplane to the Wakatobi airstrip.  My only complaint was the
long island ice tea the bartenders made the night before we left (dinner on
shore at Wakatobi resort) was too strong!  Gee, life's tough.
