Comments Very comfortable boat with ensuite facilities. If possible splurge and get the upper deck cabins. Nice to have the back deck area to chill out between dives and in the evening with a nice glass of wine. Food was very good. 7 day trip from Bali to Komodo and back to Bali. Diving between Bali until you get to Komodo wasn't as good as in the park. On 7 day trip only had 2.5 days in Komodo park. Trade-off to flying to Bimi or Labuanbajo and doing entire 7 day trip in Komodo park. Along Sumbawa several interesting sites with black volcanic sand. Coral/fish life generally in very good to excellent condition. Well worth the trip.
