Other nights you will treat yourself to some authentic Maldives dinners, accompanied by breathtaking sunsets, or challenge yourself to tune to "body beru" local dancing.

The dress code is very simple: casual - no matter what part of the day or night it is.
There is a long-term and well-established crew with an experienced captain on board. They will make you at ease and very comfortable with their smooth-going professional services, so that your trip will be the most memorable in every positive aspect of it.
