Comments I really don't know if i can add to anything you have read so far about this boat. It is the best liveaboard I have been on anywhere. So let me offer this, if you have any specific questions, feel free to email me and i will be happy to get back to you with an answer.

I will mention that i did hear about one complaint from a diver (PINHEAD) who was on the cruise right after me. He complained about safety equipment. Well, unless they offloaded that stuff right after i got off the boat, he might need to up his prescription for glasses.

Now to end on a happy note, I saw so many reef manta's, giant manta's and even a whale shark, i am ruined for future trips. Next stop Komodo!
