We had a great trip on the new ‘Phinisi’ boat! Diving was amazing and the food was very delicious every day. The crew was fantastic and very professional and helpful. Great value for the money, if you look for a Liveaboard trip look no more!

Nope. Great AC. Of course you hear the engine as you travel but it's a comfortable hum and easy to sleep through.
