"Very good livaboard as compared to previous trips. The staff particularly were very good - and the dive guides excellent at finding things - especially the small stuff (very small pygmy seahorses). The one thing we did not like was the shark "enticement" which really was a shark feed - which we dont like as liveaboards should not feed the fish.

"It was the best liveaboard we have ever been in. The crew was absolutely amazing, the dive director (Rani) is simply the best, we had a fantastic time. The ship is in top conditions, great facilities, even better that the Indo Siren.

"Beautiful boat, and kept very clean by crew making time on board very pleasant. Amazing crew where things constantly ran on time on schedule, accommodative to change in weather/sea conditions and request from guests (where it allowed them) with safety first for all on board. Great service, good attention to guests, very friendly.
