September 6, 2006 Thailand "” Greetings from sunny Phuket in the Land of Smiles, it is time to let you know about some of our latest offers and special trips.

As you know, we extend a 10% return customer discount to any of you who wish to return to the good care of Ocean Rover’s award-winning crew.

Until now this discount was available only to divers who book with us directly. Effective immediately this discount is also valid if you book your trips with a travel agent. So call your favorite dive travel specialist and let them know.

December 21st – January 2nd
The cruise departure and return dates were chosen to help you avoid air
travel congestion. In fact, the object of this trip is to be away from
the crowds and celebrate Christmas and New Year in style. Each year our
Chef prepares a sumptuous Christmas dinner and wine is included. We
also include a bottle of real Champagne for each cabin to help you
celebrate New Year’s Eve. Save $500 per person if you book this
cruise before 15 October.

Reactions to our planned cruises to this Final Frontier have been
overwhelming.  All three cruises in February 2007 have been booked solid
and two of the three trips in March 2008 have been scooped up as well.
However, some of the companies that booked the whole boat still have a
few unsold spots so let us know if you are interested and we will put
you in touch with them.

There are a few empty spots on the following dive cruises:

  •  Manado, Lembeh, Bunaken in North Sulawesi, September 6-15
  •  Perhentian, Redang, Tioman in Malaysia,  27 September – 6 October & October 10-19

Please contact us for very attractive last minute deals on any of these

During the summer of 2007 Ocean Rover will be operating out of Kuantan
on the east coast of peninsular Malaysia.  Our cruises here are 8 days
and priced at $2595 per person. Make no mistake: these are full on
diving cruises where you can spend as much time underwater as you wish.
 The diving in this part of Malaysia is great -or we wouldn’t be there.

We are looking forward to the The Inaugural Golf & Dive Cruise from 3-14
June 2007. At this moment half the available places have been booked so
if you like chasing that little white ball as much as you enjoy blowing
bubbles, this is the cruise for you. Tiger, we know you love scuba
diving and we still have a cabin for you!

One of our regular divers came up with the idea of a ladies-only dive
cruise.  She felt it would be easier to get “spousal permission” if it
was a joint effort.  We promised to ask our clients so ladies, please
let us know what you think of this idea. Let us hear your “yea” or “nay”.  Sorry gentlemen, no voting rights for you.

DEMA SHOW, Nov. 8-11, Orlando FL,
Our double booth # 1713 is located just to the right of the main
entrance. Please stop by to catch up on the latest news or just to say
hello.  You are also invited to join our slideshow about  MALAYSIA LIVEABOARD DIVING on Friday 10 November at 10:00AM.

Thank you for your time, we hope to welcome you back on board Ocean
Rover in the near future.

Dive Safely,
