Blue Melody Experiences

Really fantastic - a once in a lifetime trip! The itinerary was wonderful and the crew adaptable enough that if one place didn't suit, they would make alternative plans. The diving was totally spectacular and tailored to our requirements and shore visits an option and very good. The crew were professional, couldn't do enough for us and were so nice (and with a good sense of humour!). The ship was fabulous and in immaculate condition (we were given an upgraded cabin which was very nice indeed, but the other cabins looked good too). Thoroughly recommended.”
