The good: Food was very good and plentiful, boat staff were great and while
we initially thought the rooms very small this was our first live aboard
and apparently they were "average". Diving was mostly great with
lots of little critters and some great mid-size fish and good coral. 

The not so good: We do not dive Nitrox and dive profiles were given for
Nitrox divers. When we encountered a problem, we were told "you should
have been diving Nitrox" which we thought was not only not helpful but
also unnecessary. We were assisted in sorting out our profiles by another
diver who was a dive master guest. We were not impressed with the lack of
assistance by the two dive masters. 

In all, it was a very good dive trip and we learned a lot about our
abilities and remembering to do our tables manually. If you are not an
experienced diver, don't expect extra help because you probably won't get
it with the two dive masters that we had. However, the most experienced one
of the three dive masters (a Balinese native) was great and very helpful.
We never did hear back from Peter Hughes about our complaint!!!
