Absolutely great

The vessel is not the youngest and you can perhaps find more luxurious boats. The Food was excellent, the while staff was great too. All work was done with a smile and there was such a good spirit on this ship. The diving was just spectacular, the richest coral gardens I have seen anywhere. And so many fish - unbelievable. Also saw Manta Rays and sharks, turtles, crocodile fish, Napoleons and and and. I will come back to Raja Ampat, that’s for sure!
