Dive And Cruise Thailand Liveaboard - Diverace Class Reviews
Been onboard a couple of times and it's the best LOB experience I have come to enjoy immensely. The diving were fantastic. The DMs are experienced and safety comes above all else. A quality that should never be ovelooked. Professional but also friendly and a joy to be with. The boat crew are always around with a smile and ready to help too!
It's a sweet luxury that every cabin comes with an ensuite bathroom. You get to enjoy hot showers with good water pressure after every single dive. Ohh and let me add how comfortable the beds were. Actual bed with proper mattress and pillows.
I also appreciate that the crew cleans the private and common areas daily, keeping the cleanliness level up there for the entire trip.
One more thing to praise about is the food. You will never go hungry onboard MV DiveRace. All you have to do is sit down and start enjoying the delicious food.
Tip: Explore the boat and enjoy the sundeck when you're not diving!
All in all, always looking forward to my next trip with DiveRace!!
DiveRace was a great experience from the accommodation, service and especially the food.
The room and bed are quite spacious compare other LOB. It equipped with 5 inch mattress and comes with a comforter plus 2 pillows! They have twin sharing and quad sharing. Twin sharing suit couples as your mattress can be joint as one. Shower gel and shampoo were provided with 2 towels (1 for shower and 1 for diving). Diving towel was coded so you wonâ€™t mixed up with others and end up wiping others smell on your face.
My trip has 1:4 ration of Dive Master to Diver. Vincent was my DM. Heâ€™s one of the best DM I had. Responsible but come with sense of humour. Heâ€™s extremely good in spotting marine sea life even down to a shrimp as small as a grain size. He will ensure we get the best dive every dive. Heâ€™s funny and knowledgeable. Heâ€™s kind of shy and quiet but once you get him talking, he will share lots of knowledge to you.
Lastly the food which I didnâ€™t expect it to actually exceeded my expectation and experience. Most LOB will prepare decent food and DiveRace definitely exceed the benchmark. I had different Asian Cruisine on the boat from Tom Yum Gong to Bah Kut Teh to Western Bolognese. We were pampered with delicious food, fresh fruits and importantly they were equipped with automatic espresso machine with fresh coffee beans for your morning caffeine dose.
In the end of the trip, the Eric the Boat Manager will have the final debrief by recognising all the boat staff except the boat captain (I wonder where will we end up if the captain also join us) by name. That show how respectful towards the rank and file staff. Well done Eric.
Iâ€™m extremely satisfied with my trip with DiveRace and Iâ€™m looking forward to dive again with them. Hopefully Vincent will still be my next dive DM. Kudos to Vincent and DiveRace.
One of the best dive trips to the Similan Islands. Perfect weather added to the serenity. The French Instructors were respectful and safety conscious at all times. Food was restaurant quality.
A great diving trip with awesome divemasters and superb crew on an excellent boat! Hopefully we'll be joining you guys again next year!
Decent dive operation but grotty and badly maintained cabins on our trip to Similan Islands in Nov 2016. Basic mattresses on floor and badly leaking pipework in bathroom. Certainly not luxury. The food was a bit variable. Very good divemaster and lovely helpful crew. Average but pleasant tropical reef diving. Richelieu Rock was very nice though.
