The good: The boat is new and the crew is great.  Give a 5 for that.  The
diving was mixed.  Some sites were great, but others are not so great,  Saw
a awful lot of dead coral along the way.
The not so great: Although I arrived the night before boarding, the boat
left a day early because of moving divers from Ocean Hunter I onto our
boat.  That shedule left one day earlier. So I had to wait for a day boat
to go out to drop me off at the Ocean Hunter III. I lost 2 dives, oh well. 
My step son was supposed to join me in Guam.  Due to a flight cancellation
he did not make it and arrived in Koror a day late.  I was told that Patrik
had to spend the night in Koror and catch a day boat the next day or they
could "bring him out after arrival for $350.00.  I paid the $350.00 to
bring him out.
The Bad:If you ever plan to go on the Ocean HunterIII don't book cabin 1,2
or 5.  They are windowless dungoens and for the life of me I don't know how
2 people can live there.The rooms are about 7'X7'with 2 bunks.  The door
only opens 2/3 of the way on cabin one.  The toilet faces the wall and the
space is one ft. One has to have some acrobatic skills to negotiate it.
Cabins 3,4,6 are only slightly bigger.  The two top cabins are nice.  So is
the eating area and the salon.The food was ok, barely but ok .  Little
varity, lots of chicken and pretty greasy.  Of all the livaboards I ever
been on this gets last place. Also, very pricy.Overall, not a good value. 
At least not for my money.
