Amazing trip

The boat is new, but works need to be done for a better confort. For example, the boat is not designed to support humidity. Therefore , beds are smelly and air condition needs to be on all the time. The engineering of the boat makes the smell Coming from to kitchen enters the room.

A trip full of magical experiences

The highlight of the trip was diving with a whale shark. We had snorkelled with them before, but seeing one while diving was spectacular. The entire crew was amazing, the boat more than comfortable, the food provided an extra few kilos added to the bodies post trip, and the dive sites visited truly gave us the best of the Maldives.
