MV Oktavia dive boat review

The 30 meters Oktavia is a liveaboard operating in Thailand, more specifically cruising to the Similan Islands. Indeed, the sturdy vessel promised a nice calm voyage on the Andaman Sea.

.

Boat Cabins & Layout

The Oktavia welcomes a maximum of 20 guests on each trip, but it could certainly hosts many more. Indeed, the vessel is spacious and the limited number of guests makes it more comfortable for everyone to enjoy. Also, the various types of cabins give you a flexible accommodation choice. First, among the standard cabins you can choose from cabins with a double bed or with 2 twin beds. All of those cabins have air-conditioning and share 4 bathrooms / toilets between them. Secondly, there are 2 master staterooms, which are bigger and feature an en-suite bathroom.
