this boat was not as expected. It should have been in dry dock having repairs. After having on a dive trip on the Indo Siren, we expected the same quality, but this boat was not quality ... expecial

The diving - the reefs and critters were exceptional

Recommended for
The dive sites were incredible. The passenger people we met and dove with were great. Unfortunately, the 3rd thing was being able to leave the boat.

Disappointed

My no hot water shower, the ceiling leaking on my bed in two locations. The unhelpfulness of the staff to help fix major issues. The door not opening in my room. Running out of food at the buffet and the thing that really bothered me was the fuel surcharge 4 weeks before we were to be on the boat! Disappointed. I loved my prior siren trips but never again.

There's no place like a Masters Live Onboard

Finally seeing the whale sharks up close after chasing them in the last 5 years I finally had them so close. The sardine run when I unknowingly found myself alone surrounded by a ball of circling sardines.

Recommended for
The amazing crew. The dive locations. The safety of each dive.
