Excellent Boat. Awesome food! Thoughtful. My daughter is vegetarian and they would make her a portion without meat so she could eat also. Crew: excellent. Diving: Even when there was a problem with equipment it was fixed right away and we were able to join dive. Great amazing trip! Everything overall was perfect. We will book again.

Everything was wonderful! The entire crew was very helpful and accommodating. Special thanks to Saoirse for the guidance and encouragement she gave to myself and Jayleen while I recovered from a cold. She truly helped Jayleen with her confidence in diving without me.

The boat is beautiful. I can’t wait to come back. The food was incredible. I loved the semi a la carte style instead of buffet all the times. All of the crew were amazing. They took care of every little detail and made my trip top notch. This was the best diving I’ve done in my life. Fami was an amazing Divemaster. Don’t change a thing!

Ferry is the best dive master we’ve ever had we request him on our return in 18 months. All crew was awesome.

I have no complaints about anything. Once again, the boat was amazing. I didn’t eat everything but somehow always ate too much. Food and beverages were fantastic. Especially, the impromptu burger night. Outstanding! Crew: always way above and beyond. I feel like I’ve learned most of my diving here on the Arenui (72 of my total dives). I couldn’t imagine having as much fun, learning as much as I have anywhere else! I love the Arenui! Given enough funds and time, this is always my first choice. I make everyone jealous back home and forever look forward to the next trip!

Excellent boat. Every day not only got more exciting and eventful but more and more I was impressed by the continuous attention and quick reactions to all things happened, noticed or unnoticed. Food and beverages: Amazing every day. Cappuccino Machine – Wow J. Crew and Dive Masters:  was given excellent. Divemasters were given a ‘WOW’. Room Boys: ‘Ninjas for sure’. Tender drivers always picking me up and made sure I had the quickest trip back to Arenui… even if I surfaced a few minutes before the rest of the group. Almost doubled my dives in these 9 days! As a new diver, I felt always comfortable knowing my gear was always cared for and repaired even before I was aware of a fault!! I expected many of the crew to know my name by the end of the trip but I was very thrilled when everyone I came in contact with greeted me by name in the morning, after each dive (welcoming me ‘back home’) and even passing through the restaurant! I hardly remembered that just a few days before Arenui was being overhauled in dry-dock.

Slept like a baby. Espresso Machine J. Outstanding customer service. The anticipation of needs and quick action on our behalf. Preparation and briefings were appreciated. Ferry was the best dive master I’ve ever had. I’ve had good ones in the past but he is superior. I can’t thank all of the Arenui Staff enough but am so grateful for their attention to detail and my comfort. Onsite massage is a double plus.

The uniqueness and history of the Arenui added to the memorable experience. Even traveling at night in rough seas gave an authentic feel with the wood creaking softly and the gentle humming of the engines. The only reason I had trouble sleeping was from excitement to be on board. A very special thank you to the Chefs for keeping us full all week. Even on the last day, we were served a delicious fresh salad and vegetables. There were always new flavors to try each day. I was especially impressed when the Chef rearranged the menu to accommodate a special request for Cheeseburgers one night. I will never forget smelling the fresh buns baking that day. The Arenui Crew was amazing. It was like magic that they kept everything running so smooth. The service was outstanding! All of their hard work is what made our experience so enjoyable. We are eager to book another trip because of them! Really enjoyed the variety of dive sites. Ronald was an excellent guide. He helped find many creatures and often multiple subjects at the same time to keep each diver/photographers occupied. One of my favorite part of diving was hot cocoa and hot towels after a night dive.

Best Liveaboard I have ever been on and best crew! Cruise Directors were exceptional and the crew were the best I have ever come across. Marine Biologist Jose was a brilliant addition, fantastic talks and such enthusiasm. Steve was the best DM. Top notch Food & Beverage.

Excellent boat! I have only once or twice experienced service like this. Quite exceptional from the directors to Steve, Mario, Kadek and room boys. The fact lies they seen so happy laughs and smiling. I loved having a Marine Biologist along. Jose was great. By far and away the best dive boat I have been on. I believe that a happy ship is a reflection not just of the capital spent but on the leadership and Kai is clearly exceptional as is Jose, which added hugely to the enjoyment. Our guide Steve was also brilliant.

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.

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.

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