Customer Review

“What more could you ask for if all the things and services that you need are given to you? From comfy cabins, to good facilities, incredibly-helpful staff and great service, MSV Amira has it all to achieve an extraordinary diving experience. The boat is well-designed and well-kept. Although it was almost full when I had my trip, there was still enough space for everyone.  The crew showed their welcoming gesture by giving us fresh towels after every dive.

The whole crew was absolutely willing to help out. Some even helped me rinsed my gear. I was in awe with the divers who guided us because all of them were stupendous in identifying the marine organisms we met along the way even the minutest ones.  Diving in Rajah Ampat was an exhilarating experience for me. The dive sites were mesmerizing, the coral reef formations were beautiful and the itinerary and service of MSV Amira made diving more fun and enjoyable!
I am a naturally shy person but the crew made me and the rest of the guests feel comfortable. They have fine set of SCUBA equipment. Their equipment was well-taken cared of. I am grateful to one of the crew who allowed me to rent a computer when mine suddenly froze.  There is a variety of food. Most of the local and international dishes served were delicious. They also served us cakes and tea for afternoon snacks.

I’m thankful that I went on board with  MSV Amira for they created a remarkable Rajah Ampat experience for me!”

3 liveaboard reviews for “MSV Amira

  1. I had a wonderful trip in 2014 on the Amira. I liked the spacious dive deck and her modern facilities, which gave me enough comfort. It was also very clean, sleek and classy. I enjoyed hanging out in the upper deck. Sharks and other pelagic sightings were possible there. The roomy sundeck was perfect for sunrise and sunset viewing. I also stayed there when I want to upload and edit my underwater photos. They had a good selection of movie which you can watch while hanging out in the air-conditioned saloon.

    The staff was informative and the boat crew attended to our needs. I have observed also that all the diving equipment were well-maintained. I have to say that the local and foreign dive masters were all conversant and well-acquainted about their job. Aside from helping us in identifying marine creatures faster, they also have a good sense of humor which keeps a relaxing vibe.

    I also appreciate the effort that MSV Amira exerted in serving sumptuous dishes. My diving buddy who is a vegetarian, didn’t worry for her meal since the chef onboard also catered to this type of diet. I believe that MSV Amira 1 will last longer in this liveaboard industry because of the quality service and outstanding assistance they give to the customers!

  2. Dive, eat, sleep, repeat. No kidding, I dove as much as 4 times a day on this boat. When not diving, I could use a sea kayak and paddle around. It was a paradise for marine biodiversity, I have never seen and learned so much in such a short period of time. The boat is beautifully designed, practical and comfortable at once. The crew was amazing, helpful and knowledgeable .

  3. Amazing experience. The vessel, the inflatables and the equipment were all newer and easy to use. We ate plenty of good food and the kitchen staff is nice and accommodating. The boat crew is smart, well trained and professional. Amazing week holiday!
