Wonderful ExperienceVerified review

The crew and the dive team were very hospitable. My kids did their PADI open water course on board. The vessel has definitely seen better days. The rooms though appear tidy, but would need more cleaning. Be prepared to pay just like anywhere in Maldives and they ONLY accept cash either in EURO/ USD. I find this strange as most reputable companies should have card facilities. Also, the F & B is very much catered to the European palate, but the nice crew made some exceptions for me and my family, which I am grateful. Also my compliments and gratitude to Ornela and Fabio that were such gracious host. Will be back

Fantastic live-aboard experience with Macana in MaldivesVerified review

We just returned from our week-long liveaboard trip to Maldives over Christmas. We booked this trip using divebooker.com and were guided through the process of planning for this trip in a very professional, timely manner. Our booking agent Teresa was always helpful and considerate of our special needs. The actual operator of this trip is an Italian company called Macano with one of the owners - Stephano - actually working as the crew-master and diving instructor onboard the 4-level yacht "Princess Handy". The entire crew, consisting of dozen or so staff members, including another dive-instructor Fabio and marine biologist/snorkelling instructor Kiara and her colleague Shafi, were incredible hosts and they made our experience truly amazing. The chef worked tirelessly in the kitchen each day to produce tasty variety of dishes 3 times a day, including a holiday special on Christmas eve and a Thursday-night BBQ on a private island where several boats dock to host BBQ nights for their guests along the same beach. We were also pleased by the fact that there were other families with kids on the trip which made our lives much easier since our 7 year old was able to play and bond with them. Him being constantly occupied and entertained, my spouse and I were able to find time to rest and lounge, which was sorely needed after an intense work year. All in all - we are super pleased with this experience, especially given the time of the year, the amazing Maldivian nature (above and below the water's surface), the warm hospitality and the professional crew and booking agent. Highly recommend it to anyone. Tom
