Not a single thing to complain about and everything to rave about. Chrissie and Jona made everything so easy, and the entire Siren crew made this "Princess Diving" at its very best. Accommodations were superb, the showers were the best after a dive, the food was absolutely excellent - chef and kitchen staff awesome. The dive boats and crew were top notch, and the support staff were simply the best. And this doesn't even start with the diving, which was fantastic (vis, temp, dive guides, and marine life). Philippines Siren is simply one of the best live aboard dive adventures going.

A well organised and facilitated 6 days. Departed from Cebu City. All the staff on board were fantastic and assisted without question. On board facilities are fantastic. Dive guides were brilliant and guided us around some fantastic dive sites. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Money well spent, great value and I'll be doing this again. As far as guidelines, bring your dive gear, minimal clothing and have a ball. A big thanks to the Cruise Director Chrissie, her backup Jona and all the staff on board. You are all a credit to the organisation.
