Rooms were spacious.  Corals healthy.  Lots of lionfish (a personal
favorite.)  Lots of large schools of large fish.  Not much in the way of
pelagics, but lots of the usual tropicals and macro stuff.  Some
interesting and unusal dives:  a few wrecks, passage dives for sharks,
caves, and Mirror Pond, where you surface in an inland pond in the jungle. 
Most diving from 'tinnies', metal skiffs with small, but adequate, boarding
ladders.  Dive masters personable, helpful if you needed it; left you alone
if you didn't.  Crew attentive and helpful.  This is the only liveaboard
we've been on where the crew cleaned your gear at the end of the week!  If
it didn't get dry, they took it down to the engine room overnight.  Laundry
services offered midweek.
