Perfect liveaboard trip.

The diving was fantastic with guides going above and beyond to choose beautiful and fun routes on the sites. The family style Italian meals were fun and the crew were very helpful for the fishermen on board as well.

Good trip except for the end

Great food, Seeing sharks, and massive coral reefs. The other divers were also pleasant people. I do need to mention some downsides though. Our dive guide was not so great. He didn’t have the ability to make our dive group fee like a team and he spent a lot of time critiquing and critiquing dive techniques especially in the morning at breakfast in front of everyone else. don’t expect to enjoy your morning coffee with him. These dive trips aren’t cheap and your dive guide is the person you’ll spend the most time with in the water, so it’s worth really considering how a poor dive guide will influence your overall experience.

Experience of a Lifetime

I’ve been fortunate to experience both the Princess Dhonkamana and Princess Haleema. Both weeks were such a breathtaking experience. The staff and boat crew are simply amazing and do everything possible to ensure all guests are happy and comfortable. The food is wonderful, and the chef takes such pride in making sure every guest has something to enjoy. The diving/snorkeling guides are also incredible and take the time to bring the guests to the most beautiful sites to see an array of fish, mantas, turtles, and sharks. I can’t recommend these boats highly enough, and I will keep going back!
