Comments Stayed at Blue Lagoon hotel for 1st two days prior to boarding the Odyssey. Hotel is clean but clearly "economy level" based on US standards. TV did not work in the entire facility, claimed it would work in "a few days" but upon a return a week later it still was not working. Prior reader reports indicate this may be the "norm". Food was acceptable in the resturant. Had to call maintenance to get AC working but they responded quickly and did so. Be aware paying with a credit card results in a 3%+ surcharge which they do not tell you at check-in. Hotel lobby has free Wifi but is very slow.

Truk Odyssey Liveaboard was simply outstanding. Captain's Nelson and Todd were the best I have experienced and their attitude, attention to detail and professionalism was A+. Frankly you could not ask for better. In addition to their competency they were oustanding people. The remainder of the crew reflected their leadership and simply went out of their way to make your stay and diving expereince on the Odyssey an oustanding experience. I frankly don't know how they could have done anymore than they did. I would stronly recommend them to anyone wanting to dive Truk Lagoon and would quickly do this liveaboard again.
