    I loved the trip. I would totally recommend it. And Tourradar service is really great: clear information and amazing customer service. Crew, food, boat and overall experience was great. Its a relaxed and chilled trip. Would have been good to know in advance that this tour in NOT island hopping. You actually barely stop on islands. The tours is mostly sailing and snorkeling everyday. There are only a couple of stops on sandbanks (so not islands but just a few minutes on a piece of sand) and 2 stops in local islands (which are really poor and dirty). There is barely no beach time, which is fine if you love sailing and snorkeling. The food quality and portions was really impressive. The crew was very nice, hardworking and available all the time. Only thing is that only the CEO spoke English but not the rest, so really hard to interact with the rest of the crew.

    Not all "dhonni" are created equal. At least I hope not. Our room had no ventilation so we left the door open. The AC didn't work for several nights. When it did it was turned on from roughly 6pm to 6 am. After repeated complaints we finally got a working fan. Metal in bathroom area was rusted through. I was glad I had my tetanus shot when I slipped on the floor and my toe went through the metal. Our guide slept a lot so much so that we joked about it. He showed himself briefly when not going on excursions. He never introduced the crew. On the last night, the owner of the boat came on board and openly smoked pot. Oh yes, full ashtrays were inside the common areas. Without the open windows and doors, it would have been unbearable for a non-smoker. The crew on the hand was great and we relied on them. The cook was excellent producing great food in a small galley. Based on this experience I would not recommend this trip. Maybe other hired boats are better....let's hope so.

    Loved the trip! CEO and crew were attenative to our needs and sensed a real desire to make it as wonderful as possible. Did all they could to make sure we had top snorkeling experiences, including see illusive manta rays!

    Maldives Dhoni cruise - an amazing experience ... when we FINALLY got away . Arrived at Male airport , but no one to welcome us :( . After many entanglements , lies and frustrations , we came first aboard the ship about one and a half days later :( - We had to get in touch with G - adventures several times , did not feel that there was any kind of help. Has now after returning however received compensation! Aside from that, a very special experience to see Maldives from a ship. Delicious food onboard . But we could fell that the staff on board had counted on vacation this week . WE WERE NOT BOOKED TO THIS SHIP RIDETHANKS TO G Adventures :( -An employee of G Adventures must have a bad taste in the mouth!!! BUT for sure we will recommend the Maldives Dhoni Cruise - just make sure, that the trip is booked!!!!!!

Sailing Maldives...anytime again!
