    The chef Joshua cooked up the best food I’d ever had aboard any liveaboard, absolutely amazing. The quad room is far too small for four people, and the air conditioner needs to be cleaned. I slept on the top of the boat every night except one, which was actually really quite lovely with the stars and sea breeze. Staff were excellent, very accommodating and the dive guides put a big focus on safety. The ship is quite slow, it took us 30+ hours to arrive in San Benedicto and I felt the planning could have been better as we didn’t make it to Roca Partida which was very disappointing. The dive deck is spacious, and the camera platform has everything you need to set up your rig. The ship isn’t necessarily small but as you can’t hangout at the bow of the boat it ends up feeling quite cramped especially when you stay in the quad room. If it wasn’t for the the food I would have given it a 3/5.
