Très belle expérience !!

Nous avons adoré cette croisière plongée mais regrettons le nombre de plongeurs sur les sites. C'était vraiment exagéré et avec ça, les coraux meurent à petit feu et il y a de moins en moins de poissons. Sinon, tout était super... Les membres de l'équipage étaient formidables et on a mangé comme des dieux, merci aux cuisinières ! C'était très sympa car beaucoup de nationalités différentes sur le bateau... La prochaine fois, nous irons du côté du Myanmar qui est semble-t-il très préservé.
