The perfect cruise
The perfect cruise: a beautiful ship, a very friendly and efficient staff, magic dives ... especially those with whale sharks or with manta rays. Delicious food, spacious cabins ... I will go again on a cruise with Carpe Diem as soon as possible.

Unparalleled service aboard the luxurious Carpe Diem Phinisi
Small dive group made for a personal experience on board, both while diving and also on deck. Owner/operators took care of all the logistics and the crew was superbly organized, which meant our every desire was anticipated and catered toward. The chef made sure every meal was full of variety and flavor. We requested and stayed in the largest cabin, Pala, which was very comfortable.

Best liveaboard ever.
I just came from the trip „central and north Raja Ampat“ and am still amazed by the wonderful time I had on board. The ship itself is a traditional indonesian Phinsi and in very good shape (kind of new). The cabins are very cozy and with aircon, the entire ship is just beautiful. So is the crew. We did a kayak trip around Piaynemo and on other occasions you could take one of the kayaks or SUPs and just explore the nearby beaches if you wanted. The dive sites were wonderful and the diving procedure was relaxed. I did 19 dives on this trip. Having a very small group size of up to 8 divers is quite unique and definitely one of the selling points. So is the wooden boat itself. The boat is owned by two persons of which one (or sometimes both) is leading the trips. This makes it more interesting in my opinion. Unlike most other boats run by investors or big companies. Sodas included, food was delicious. I‘ll go again with them on another trip.
