I just said to my husband that I never been on a vacation completely, utterly stress free with no worries.  Lisa and Guillermo are the Arenui, of course with Luigi as they never miss a thing and absolutely everything runs smoothly (Siska also was wonderful an asset a great help). Not an easy accomplishment they and the staff, front stage and behind the scenes are fantastic!!! Coming back in Mar 2021.

All excellent. Loved the coral, but got a little bored with muck sand but this is just my preference. FERY was the best!!! I very much appreciated the special attention he gave us!!! Totally enjoyed kitchen staff and stewards, loved their happy attitudes and smiles. I truly enjoyed myself and for this, you should give great credit to Fery, Lisa and Guillem!!!

This was a fantastic trip from the beginnings to end. Prior to the trip Siska was amazing in coordinating details and country logistics.  Cruise Directors did a great job with dive briefings and organizing our dive days, they were super informative, helpful and fun to have leading the trip. The staff were top!! They really went out of their way to assure we had a great time. The entire effort allowed me to truly have a stress free and enjoyable and relaxing vacations, thanks!!! Everybody was extremely helpful and had a sincere desire to please.  Hery was an awesome dive leader, he was great at finding and pointing out things/ sea live of interest.

Such an amazing team and crew, thanks to everyone for all the attention to detail and a well-planned trip. Cruise Directors do a tremendous job to take care of everyone. Hope to be back with you all soon!!!! And thank you for Brian’s birthday!! First liveaboard and we had an amazing time, now I can honestly consider myself a diver. Loved having the fresh fruit all the time, the options through the day, the celebration treats are a nice morale booster and much appreciated.

All excellent. Loved having a hair dryer and power strip in the rooms. We should have brought warmer wetsuits and more GoPro cameras.

Best liveaboard experience I’ve ever had. We will be back! Boat: Excellent facilities, everything was clean when we got back from the first dive and the air fresheners in the bathrooms were an excellent addition. Diving: Dive sites were incredible. Crew: Excellent. Fun fact: If you listen close, you can hear Ronald laughing underwater. Diving was world class and we got very lucky with the weather. Food: Best liveaboard food in the world! Many thanks to the chefs!!

Lisa and G are the greatest!! And Idy was an awesome dive guide. This was our second trip aboard the Arenui and it was exceptional. We have since booked more trips in years to come. Every single member of the crew has made us feel comfortable, safe and tremendously happy. There is attention to detail and meeting the needs of every guest, all while providing a breathtaking view of the beautiful underwater world. All the dives are led by knowledgeable divemasters with keen eyes and the ability to highlight the creatures unique to the area/dive site. The chefs and kitchen staff prepare delicious meals and provide wonderful flexibility for those with specific dietary needs. The Arenui not only provides its guests with a truly awesome diving experience but it also provides a relaxing retreat from a busy world. A heartfelt thanks to every member of the Arenui team for offering us such a memorable vacation!

Loved the goodie bags passed out. Very classy - and what a wonderful memory to take home (the video). I can't wait to return!! would highly recommend this "gem" of a boat to ALL! Diving: been all over the world and the diving in Raja Ampat is way up on the top of my list! Crew: they are the best of the best. Keep every one of them! Food: five star!

Boat: best and most beautiful boat in the world! My 10th liveaboard and the Arenui is head and shoulders above the rest! Diving: best diving I've ever done and I've been diving for 50 years. Got to snorkel and play with two mantas on the surface. Biodiversity and health of the reefs the greatest!! Crew: could not be more helpful, kind, courteous, solicitous and attentive!! Every one. Food: my belly had gotten larger.

We had an exquisite trip. Exemplary crew/staff. Diving was wonderful. Crew/staff so much attention to detail and comfort for the guests. We would definitely rate our trip 5 stars plus. I could go on and on about how terrific our experience has been. My advise is - come aboard, you'll love the experience.

Many wonderful experiences. A surprise visit by a whale shark was magical. When we were at a giant manta cleaning station the crew helped me hook in so I was nice and close to a manta. I will always remember being eye to eye with this majestic creature!! Boat: bed was very comfortable. Beautiful boat and state rooms. Diving: felt very safe with Phari. He is very skilled and we appreciated him spotting critters for us. Crew: I have been on many liveaboards (8-10). My experience on the Arenui was top notch - the best yet. Service could not be better. Phari learned our dive preferences and needs which enhanced our experience. Cannot say enough good things about Anto. His dedication to his guests - admirable. Everyone seems happy and all the smiles and joking around was infectious.

Wonderful trip! The "small details" have all been anticipated and attended to on this boat, as well as the obvious big stuff! Superb organization and response to needs. Boat: I love the wood (all re-used/re-claimed) and the art work throughout the boat. Cabins very comfortable. We were in Ganesh and had storage space beyond our needs!! Pillows were great - 1 soft and 1 firm for each bed - what a lovely plan!! Sky lounge was lovely with canopy. Diving: wonderfully planned locations/great manta sitings (the goal of this trip). Itinerary was flexible to keep up to best manta ray opportunities. Crew: All staff/crew were helpful and friendly. The Steward and Wayan and Wenton were quickly aware of preferences and needs, very helpful. Even could tell when someone needed extra help. The leadership of the Cruise Directors was amazing (Debbie & Jerry). It feels like everything has been thought through, extremely well-run boat, limits were clear and presented in a fun way to boot. There was no question about safety preparation and we all knew about evacuation plans immediately. Jose - with his knowledge of fish/creature identification always expanded our dive experiences by siting with small groups to identify and talk about fish and their behaviors. Good library available. Food: I always had gluten free choices - thank you!! Food quality was large, but ½ portions were available. And we were all amazed at how hungry we were for each of the 5 eating times!
