Damai Delivers Again!

The staff was amazing. Always smiling. Always going out of their way to make you feel special. The cruise director and Dive Master were informative, caring and always attentive to our safety. The boat is beautiful and in great shape with all cabins having enough comfort for everyone. And the locations are simply amazing both in and out of the water. This was my second trip with Damai and it will certainly not be the last. Thanks to all!
