Comments Great liveaboard! I booked the trip with my two sons (20 and 22) because of a great price ($500 off regular price) and good reviews on this site and others.

Because of the discount the boat was fully loaded with 18 passengers, two per cabin. Despite the full boat it was a great experience. The crew was great and ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

I am preparing for my first Liveaboard trip on this ship. Any advice for packing and preparing?

Use collapsable luggage like duffels. Storage space for luggage is limited. Definitely a benefit to have Nitrox certification. Only one person on our trip did not use Nitrox (he was 87 - fun guy who was being safe). We used 3mm full wetsuits. Everybody wore some exposure suit, either a shorty or a full wetsuit. A little cooler in St. Kitts and Saba, but not cold. The crew was great on our trip and very helpful. A good light is beneficial for the night dives. Lots of turtles and small animals.
