Ocean Rover is the best liveaboard that I have been on.  Unlike other
operations, the crew and service on this boat is consistently good from
what I have heard, and my experience confirmed this.  There were 10 on
board, and only three were new to this boat including myself.  The rest
were repeats, some more than once.  The cabins were spacious and nicely
appointed.  I liked the fact that each shower had its own self-contained
water heating unit so you couldn't run out of hot water.  The crew was
always there to help you - I could barely put on or take off my own
wetsuit.  The boat was built in 2000 and most of the crew had a hand in its
construction, so they were like one big family.  The diving was very easy. 
Water extremely warm, I almost fell asleep underwater.  Had my 5 mil, as I
get cold easily but it was still warm with 4 dives a day.  No big critters,
but lots of nudibranchs. Limited visiblity.  I'm glad I went to Malaysia. 
Wouldn't go out of my way to go there again, but I would choose Ocean Rover
as a repeat liveaboard in a heartbeat.
