I suggest a robe would be a super add on, and also maybe a cubby hole per cabin to store small items prior to the dive

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip. A couple of suggestions - robes (instead of towels) & a little cubby space on dive deck for small items such as sun cream, water bottle etc. would be super useful.

All of the crew were attentive, helpful, positive, friendly, and frankly, really hilarious. Martyn has more energy than a baby border collie. The crew is wonderful!

Food was good but would have appreciated some more local/authentic dishes beyond just tacos.
Any crew standout?
Yes, crew was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and provided excellent service on all fronts. I really enjoyed how personable everyone was and the lengths they went to provide an amazing dive experience for all of the guests. Martyn and Felipe in particular went out of their way to engage with guests but I also had great interactions with Thiago, Adrian, and Christian. Graham was also a great captain and I really liked the bridge tour. Silvia and Lala were incredible hostesses and I was impressed by how quickly they learned my preferences. I also appreciated how they went on the upper deck to take drink orders and give out snacks - they really went the extra mile!

All have been fantastic and bring their personalities onboard, which is great. A shout out to Heronimo, who is just lovely and a real credit to the company. All divemasters have been fantastic and Martin added a great dose of joy to the trip with his joie de vivre and was most conscientious when he was our dive guide. Felt really safe and well taken care of on all days.

The whole crew was very friendly. The Captain TJ was always looking after us and making sure we were having a good time. He is a lovely person and a very very very good captain. Jeremy is just the best to be around. He is funny and always had a smile on his face. You can’t have bad days when you are with him! Oscar is everywhere. When you are in the sun deck, he is there. Then you move to the dive deck, he is also there fixing something... amazing! Above all, I will never forget him, because he called me to the sundeck to see my first whale watching. Dulce, her name says it all. She made us all fall in love with her. So caring, she always had the right word, a smile and a glass of water at the right moments. She really made us feel home. Iris manages everything very very well. She is perfect for it. She knew everybody’s names, our preferences and even antecipate our needs. She is a very organized person, which helped us a lot to find stuff and to move around. She has a brilliant future ahead of her. The Chef... makes me speechless! Always smiling, a lovely person to talk to, an excellent and very creative chef! Nautilus should be proud to have someone like him taking care of its clients. I loved every single meal and he should write a book with all his recipes for us to cook at home. Mirko, very experienced dive master. He was always trying to talk in our language so we could be more safe of the instructions. He is fun to be with and to talk to. He has great stories to tell. Aldo is always observing everything and he shows up at the right moment to help. He is very concerned with the group underneath water and tries to makes us see everything. Jessie is strong and determined. She makes us feel confident under water and she will do everything to please us. Above water, she is fun to be around and chat with. Mayo is just fantastic. Besides his duty, he was concerned about everything else in the boat. He helps all the crew, he is 100% focused on pleasing us. He is amazing great dive master under water, because he understands our fears, but makes us surpass them all. I had great dives with him. In summary, this crew was great in each and every way! Thank you all for making this trip unforgettable!
