Amazing crew and location! I got an upgrade to discover scuba diving on board.
The trip is long and a bit uncomfortable, the see is really rough and lots of people got seasick but the snorkeling was amazing, the reef is so close and packed with sea life. The scuba diving was also amazing, you can learn the basics and see the MOUA.
