Comments Our third trip on this boat, and sadly the last, as it is heading to Sulawesi. The crew (which is going with the boat) is great. Very personable, easy-going, but still professional (and unyielding on such issues as the occasional dive beyond the recreational limit). The food has improved over the years; they are obviously getting better quality stuff to start with. Nothing fancy, but tasty and filling.
The boat itself was showing its age, such as a broken handle in the shower in our stateroom. But that's all scheduled to be fixed during a general facelift when the boat moves to Indonesia.
The diving was great. The crew would guide people through the wrecks if they wanted, and would break the group up so as not to overcrowd the penetrations. All very smooth.
Other than the abundance of jellyfish (always a possibility in July), conditions were terrific. Once we'd all found our Lycra hoods, gloves, etc., we were OK with diving through the jellies.
