The diving was wonderful - pelagics, large and small fish, schools of fish,
coral, nudibrancs, crabs, lobsters, seahorses, morays. One dive had two
morays in every hole in the reef. No hassles or restrictions diving (except
no diving after drinking). Divemasters are wonderful and the crew is
fantastic. They actually help you on and off with your wetsuit and have now
spoiled us for future diving. The best liveaboard we have ever been on
(we've been diving for over 20 years). We saw no adverse effects from the
tsunami - this was the first cruise after the event. We also went to Angkor
Wat and spent a few days in Bangkok - made all the reservations and
arrangements ourselves on the internet and all worked out perfectly. The
only problem is the very long trip - I would stop somewhere in the middle
next time.
