C'était juste magnifique et l'organisation que vous nous avez proposée était parfaite. Tout a fonctionné à merveille. En plus l'équipage du Nautilus était vraiment très compétent et professionnel. Nous avons très bien mangé, les plongées étaient magiques et l'ambiance à bord du tonnerre… Je ne saurai que recommandé cette croisière…
