23 Mar / Pauline & Nadeem, France/USA
We will be back on Forgotten Islands, or Komodo or this trip again - with the same CREW! Simply stunning trip! One of my best adventures ever! And something to remember all my life. The boat is gorgeous, the crew is exceptional. Boat: when I dream of a boat, I dream of Arenui. Rocking music of the wood, its beauty, comfort, everything. Diving: not just excellent, PERFECT. Lisa is a wonderful divemaster! Perfect dive plans always, awesome sense of humor, always showing lots of things we would otherwise never see. Crew: PERFECT. It's the whole TEAM, i.e. everyone together, who is outstanding. Same crew as 1.5 years ago (almost)! That says a lot. And the guests can appreciate the excellent atmosphere! Food: delicious! Too much, but wonderful!

This was my third time on the Arenui. It is by far one of the best liveaboard experiences in the best part of the diving world - Indonesia. I've been to Bali/Komodo twice and thought diving couldn't be better until I dived Raja Ampat! Diving: the best I've seen!! Crew: crew couldn't do enough for us! They were fantastic!

Food: extraordinary.

Outstanding trip. Parting gift was a very nice touch! Boat: first class accommodations! Plenty of hot water. Comfort was excellent. Pillow variety was a great touch! Diving: the scouting was very much appreciated. Extra effort to ensure we saw the best. Well worth the price! Crew: first class crew. Always standing by to assist with any desire no matter how small. Above and beyond every single day. Food: variety was excellent. Every effort made to please every single guest.

Debbie and Jerry were lovely people, filled with enthusiasm and clearly in love with their jobs. The boat was run efficiently and we felt like royalty for the entire 11 days. Boat: loved Shinta cabin. Spacious, tons of storage. Beautiful windows and lovely decorations. Great value relative to price of other cabins on boat. Upon our return, we'd only stay in Shinta or Rama. Diving: diving was spectacular! Crew: Phari was a wonderful dive guide and I appreciated being with him. Not only did he perform the traditional dive master role, but he also took extra effort to instruct me on improving my buoyancy and general diving. Debbie and Jerry were the best! Food: food was great, although there was certainly a lot of it.

Hightlight was Anto dressed as a zombie, he is very good as a zombie waiter! Glad Luigi was with us as well, made the trip very interesting. Debbie and Jerry are also excellent directors, highly recommended! This trip was a perfect trip for Traci to learn to dive. I enjoyed watching her gain confidence with each new dive. She is going to definitely be spoiled after this trip! :) Boat: our cabin was very comfortable, we felt like we had our own tree fort under the sea. Bed was very good as well. Crew: everyone was always helpful and smiling. Very sweet people. Food: sometimes too much food, but our needs were always met or exceeded. Anto and Kadek did make our dreams come true.

13 Jun / Lisa, USA
Excellent trip all around! No concerns or negative experiences at all! One suggestion: maybe offer soft spa music during massages (not too loud), may be better than hearing the other guests talking. Lisa was one of the best divemasters I've ever had! She was extremely patient, was always looking out for our group, and always took the time to make sure we were comfortable and ready. She was quick to point out the marine life and made all the dives the most enjoyable I have ever had! Terima Kasih :) Boat: Beautiful and charming! Diving: all excellent, specially the destination and safety! Crew: all excellent, specially the Cruise Directors. The entire crew was amazing! So kind, patient, caring, and accommodating at ALL times! Most of all, the crew was sincere in everything they did! Wonderful :) Food: all excellent. The food was delicious!! Great variety and presentation!

Snorkeling with whale sharks was a fantastic experience, something I didn't know was possible. A huge thank you to the Cruise Directors and crew who stayed up much of the night and rose before dawn to made arrangements for this. I really really appreciated the long bottom times. I enjoy hanging out underwater so much, and having the ability to stay a long long time meant a lot to me. I appreciate the work of the boat drivers, crew and divemasters who make it all possible. Boat: All excellent. Anto was always one step ahead, bringing me tea before I even thought of it. Diving: All excellent. I really appreciated the loan of a first stage when my one failed. I liked diving in groups of 4. Food: Great food! Incredible job running a smooth operation under challenging conditions. G, Lisa, Wawan and all the crew worked so hard to make the whale shark snorkeling come to fruition.

Boat: All excellent. Beautiful boat kept in pristine order by hard working Cruise Directors and crew. Diving: All excellent. Always kept up to date which dive site we were going to, good briefings with easy to understand diagrams. Every effort to make sure easy to get in and out of the tender. All excellent dive sites and great variety. Very fortunate to go to Triton Bay. Crew: All excellent. Both Lisa and G made every effort to make sure each guest was looked after and willingly attended to every request. Both full of enthusiasm and kindness. All the Divemasters try very hard to please each guest and always willing and informative. Because of the distance covered every member of the crew worked extremely hard and always smiling and friendly. The stewards both always attentive and good humored. Anto and Kadek are real assets as are all the crew. Food: All excellent. First class food all the time with plenty of choices, all good, so difficult to select. More than enough food through the whole day. Very hard working chef and his assistants.

Boat: All excellent. Everything is very organized. The routine is never boring, instead it helps not having to "worry" about anything. Diving: All aspects of the diving was beyond compare. The heroes are the tender drivers, who obviously are so talented, patient, observant and concerned about safety. Divemasters were great at putting us in protected areas. That is important to me. Crew: All crew were amazing in their respective roles. I know there were crew members we probably only saw a few times but they were integral in the overall operation of daily activities - day and night. Food: Service, variety and quantity were all perfect. Thanks to galley and restaurant crew alike!
