Bali Sea Dancer, March 1997, Ted Mullett, Lake Toxaway, NC. "140 passenger, 35 year old cruise ship operating to Spice Islands out of Denpasar, Bali which offers a modest dive program (I was only diver one day. 5 another day). Divemaster pleasant and competent but diving not very good. Little coral and few fish. vis: 40-80 ft. water: 76-82 degrees. Diving restrictions enforced were limits to 22 meters. The ship is clean and comfortable, food quite good and British officers very friendly. Recommend for cruise, visit to Islands and to see the famous Komodo Dragons, but not for diving."
Baruna Adventurer, June 1997, Patty Shales, LA. "Operation exceptional. Diving fantastic unlimited diving. 7 a.m.10a.m.2 p.m.4 p.m. and night. Fish life was exceptional. Hundreds of fish and schools of sharks. vis: 80150 ft. water: 8075 degrees. Many close encounters. Food and service great. Boat was clean. Great pickups. Second trip, both trips were 5 star. Trip set up by Aquatic Image 3104748970."
