Manta Cruise Liveaboard

Incredible week... great diving!

Just came back from a week on board Manta Cruise. Besides the diving, which was obviously fantastic, the crew was incredible and made this trip memorable. The food was second to none, with great variety and all the special requests taken care of. Cabins were kept clean and tidy, and they were comfortable and in good condition. Due to the lower level of experience of the divers on this trip, the Cruise Director (Thomas) booked an extra guide last minute for the entire safari: this was done to make sure we were all well looked after and also to allow more flexibility during the dives. This was an extra cost for the Operator but that was NOT reflected on us guests at all. Safety being their no1 priority at all times, all the dive masters had at least 5000+ dives, most of them in Maldives. In addition to the service, the kindness of the crew members and the food, I would like to underline Thomas's and Olga's (the other guide) incredible attention to us guests at all times, above and under water. Last but not least, Thomas is a very talented videographer, and he makes a video of the trip with footage ONLY recorded during the trip... totally worth it! You can't go wrong with them... I will be back I am sure! Thanks for this great experience!
