Great week!

The boat was well maintained but the cabins left a bit to be desired. The beds were like rocks and we got towels for blankets. The dive crew were great and the Thai crew were fun but you could tell there was some conflict between them in regards to diver safety which should be addressed immediately. The trip director Gerben addressed any issues that came up and was great to deal with. The food was abundant and amazing!! The diving was good although not as good as I was expecting. The visibility and landscape were incredible but there was a pretty evident lack of marine life that I assume is because of overfishing which was a bit sad. Coral bleaching has also done a number on the reefs. We did see a whale shark which was pretty special!

très bonne semaine malgré conjoncture compliquée

Notre croisière initialement prévue en Birmanie a été annulée vu le covid 19 mais le tram du Bavaria nous a offert en compensation le meilleur des sites de la Thailande ... site originaux et peu fréquenté ... briefing et guide au top ... personnel au petit soin ... soit une super semaine malgré conjoncture actuelle pas facile ... et on a même fini par rentrer en europe après 28h de trajet et pas mal de péripéties ;-)
