Eight of the cabins are on the main deck (deluxe) and two of them are below decks (standard). They offer the same amenities, but the cabins below decks have no picture windows. Mermaid will be operating year around in Indonesia as of May, 2011, and will be based in Komodo full time, with a few side trips to Flores and Alor east of the Komodo National Park (seasonal).The MV Mermaid II runs 1 week-long Bali - Komodo - Bali trips. This Komodo liveaboard is a powerful 32 metre steel hulled motor vessel, so it can get you to and from all the dive sites around the Komodo National Park in next to no time. An additional generator and fuel tanks give added confidence that MV Mermaid II can keep operating cruises without technical interruption. The Mermaid II is a very spacious boat and can easily accommodate up to 20 divers. Unlike many of the other Bali liveaboards, the majority of cabins are above the lower deck so you can drink in the beautiful island views through your large cabin windows. There are 2 saloons on board, 1 on the main deck and 1 on the upper deck. Food is served in the main deck saloon, and between meals there are plenty of snacks for you to enjoy including cookies, cereals and yoghurt. All the entertainment facilities are in the upper deck saloon where you can enjoy the TV, DVD player and music system. There are plenty of movies to choose from or you can browse through the multi-lingual library of books and magazines. Being on the upper deck means the cooling sea breezes waft over you making this a great place to hang out in the evenings
