Very spacious boat.  Relatively large cabins with queen size beds or twins
available.  No bunks.  All cabins had ensuite toilets and showers.  AC
worked well and boat was always comfortable. Cabins had individual AC
controls which actually worked.  Large indoor and outdoor lounge areas. 
Crew of 19 worked very hard, including very carefully washing all dive gear
after the last dive.  Land trip to Komodo Island was enjoyable. Nitrox

I've been on more than 20 live aboards and found the food on all generally
good, but the food on this boat was well above average.  

Most of the diving was in and around the Komodo National Park.     Diving

complement of 18 divers.  Likewise, the dive deck would be a bit crowded
with 18 divers.  

Most itineries arrive and depart from Bali and the crossing to Komodo is 18
hours, so a ten day trip does not mean 10 days of diving.
