Comments This was my first experience with a liveaboard so I am not able to compare with other operators.
The food was plentiful, freshly cooked, varied and accommodated special dietary requirements.
We were in Cabin 5 on the lower deck which had a newly refurbished ensuite.
The dive briefings provided by Karl were thorough and at times entertaining.
The diving was varied and largely dependent on the conditions on the day.
Two weeks prior to leaving we were informed that the water was going to be cool for part of the trip (22-25) so were well prepared.
There is a laundry service available at a moderate cost and if I had known this before I left home I would have packed less clothes.
