One Liveaboard feedback for “MV FeBrina”

  1. Best photography dive cruise I’ve been on! Honestly, yes the boat it old and stuff, it’s not the Maldives’s latest luxury yacht but every works, the food is good, you sleep well and you get to be with an awesome crew!

    Outside of passionate photographers, perhaps some divers found annoying that we go back to the same dive sites a few times but as a photographers, it’s just what you need! The trip was fulfilled in discoveries of little critters and beautiful corals. We had a great group, the crew is always fun, etc.

    The dive sites are still untouched and of course, it’s never crowded so we had such a great time and are just back with a computer full of photos to look at!
