Diver's reviews (2)

Perri, 30/07/2016

We recently went on a liveaboard trip aboard Emperor Elite. It was the first time I have done a liveaboard and knew it would either be the first and last or the first of many. Pleased to say it is the latter and we are already looking into next years trip! We did 'Simply The Best' itinerary and I can see why it's named that it was exactly what it said on the tin! Guides and crew were amazing and the food (which I won't lie I was anxious about) was absolutely fantastic! We took additional snacks on board which we didn't even touch. We really can't wait to do it all again next year!

Понравилось: работа компрессорщика, ненавязчивость дайвгидов, отсутствие тотального контроля с их стороны. Не понравилось: работа кондиционера в каюте - шумная, неэффективная, расположен в ногах (???), народу было мало, восемь человек, но это не значит, что надо всех усадить за один круглый стол, и поставить его в угол. Приходилось вставать, чтобы пропустить двух человек. Можно было рассадить за два стола, по четверо. Пиво неоправдано дорогое - четыре евро за 0,33.
