Teressa, 28/05/2014

I had a week long Komodo trip with this boat, and overall, it was very good. I had one twin sharing cabin on the upper deck which was nice because of the real windows. But the cabin was very small, and for me the food was not very good, and the choice of drinks were limited. The crew were very nice, some of them we ended up became friends.
