Rated MV Camic : 3/10
Dived with MV Camic March 2023 - 96 days ago
I was picked up on time and taken to the dive center. There I was able to pack my diving gear in my bag and put the suitcase down safely. With the diving equipment and my small backpack, with spare clothes, wash bag, camera medication, etc., I was brought onto the ship with my fellow passengers. There the cabins were distributed and then there was a briefing on the itinerary and the events on the ship. The cabins are small and there is little counter space and no storage space, but everything was clean. The wet room was adequate and clean (I'm very picky about that), but not enough storage space or coat hooks. The whole crew was always friendly and helpful. The food was varied and sufficient, unfortunately only lukewarm to cold at most. As an excuse you can name the size of the kitchen, there is not even a broom closet. But what is not possible was the vermin infestation. The crawling animals were just as represented in the booth as at the counter where the food was served as at the tables. The beetles were so cheeky that they walked onto your plate even though you were still eating. This is a condition that is unacceptable and should be stopped immediately. The diving groups were well divided and small. The dive guide was rather inattentive and has often lost me as a photographer, which was not a problem for me, thanks to my level of training. However, the briefing was rather a lot of talk about sea creatures that you "might" see and that the tour guide has over 16,000 dives, the actual information was often incomplete. The dive platform was small but we managed. All in all it was a nice liveaboard except for the terrible condition with the bugs. I cannot give the recommendation as long as the beetle problem has not been solved. No Troubles Just Bubbles team with Jamie did a good job. Thanks!
