The bad: Ten days wasn't long enough!! No one wanted to leave at the end of
the trip - 

The good: In a word - everything!

Divemasters Garry and Wendy went out of their way to assist with every
aspect of diving.

Food - what you wanted is what they served. After the first day we advised
the chef that we didn't want the food served in sauces; therefore, everyone
received their sauce in small separate dishes. Actually there was too much
food and we started telling the chef that we want half-portions! Grazing
(breads, cereals, and fruits started at 6:00am and our hot breakfast order
was taken before the first dive (7:30am). Breakfast was either eggs,
pancakes, or french toast with all of the trimmings. Lunch and dinner was a
multi-entre affair; the wine flowed as did Ceres (Nutella by another name).
Snacks were served after each dive "Henrick, I'm starving" was
the cry after each dive.

The diving was varied from muck to endless walls - lots of critters and
amazing corals.

After each dive: hot showers and a short neck/back massage!

We will definitely return to the Paradise Dancer - I will be posting photos
of the Dancer and our diving/cabin on our website
