ere very helpful and friendly and the chef Amr prepared delicious food. The boat has rooms in the lower deck, while the middle deck includes a lounge and the dining room. On the upper and sun deck there is plenty of space to relax between the dives. We had two excellent dive guides Haittam and Ahmed. The route best of wrecks covered all the important Red Sea wrecks: SS Thistlegorm, Ghiannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K, Aida, Numidia, Salem Express, Dunraven, Kingston and the Barge. The captain Yousif planned the trip very well to also allow all the divers to get good rest at night, while still travelling from one location to the next. Besides the trip itself, the staff at Divebooker has been very helpful and supportive throughout the booking phase and during the trip, and I must mention Teresa, Irene and Karina on who you can always count to plan your liveaboard

ive and available. Cabin had slight smell and noise but tolerable, and the bedding was old and pilled which made it a bit uncomfortable. All in all a good cabin experience, though. Food ranged from okay to good. Rental gear worked well, and the seamen made the process of getting in and out of dives easy. The itinerary was fantastic and we did not cancel any dives.
