The vessel, the crew, the passengers, and most of all, the experiences exceeded our wildest expectations. The dive staff was extraodinarily talented, accommodating and useful. In particular, Sten was a tremendous help to us. The deck hands, engineers and hostesses were constantly looking for ways to make our experience better. The food was delicious and plentiful. And the Captain was supremely competent, responsive and truly a hands-on manager of the entire trip. We were not aware that everyone else on the ship would be Advanced divers or (far) beyond, nor were we aware that most of the dive sites would not normally be recommended for less-experienced (<100 dives) divers like us. But the dive crew helped us to up our game, and we were careful to limit ourselves where necessary, and the end result was a tremendously enjoyable trip.
