Awesome experience. Everything was properly arranged, so surprised how all the footwear they have collected before getting on the boat were all properly lined up and paired when passengers are already unboarding. It helped the unboarding organized and without chaos. The crew is very attentive never letting you have empty glass or plate on your hand. The food was also great and unlimited drinks is equally awesome, it would have been perfect if it's longer hrs.. 4hrs to enjoy such amazing experience is bit short. ;) Also, swimming in the black sea to snorkel was a good point to mention, they have provided swimming gadgets to ensure passengers will enjoy the swim. They have ensured that passengers would be safe by providing the do's and don'ts before jumping into the water. To add, even though our location was not included in the pick up point, the organizer made an extra mile by picking us up. In summary, I would highly recommend this trip. Excellent job to the captain and crew.

Absolutely fantastic all of it. Staff couldn't do more for you. Food lovely drinks when you wanted them. Loads of time swimming. Staff helped loads getting into water, noddles and masks provided. Brilliant morning.
