WOW – it is difficult to fully describe the Seven Seas experience we have had over the past 4 weeks -yes- two back to back Raja Ampat trips! Greatly appreciated the variation from trip to trip and so it was still a unique experience. Many thanks to captains Wahyu and Pai who are so very good at ensuring our safety to all times. The guides who took us to the dive sites, and explores and kayaking were great fun and exceptional. Thank you to Imam, Ardi, Didi, bad, Lexi, big John, Koro and Bakar. Totok and his team of Ardi, John, Niko, Yovin created outstanding meals and snacks day in day out. We specially loved the lunch time buffets and the opportunity to have more local food. Yovin is definitely a superb masseuse (and dancing queen!!). Our dives guides for the month, Jefri, Irwan and Sadat (aka Manado mafia) are outstanding in what they can find (I mean really… 10 pygmy seahorses on one fan??!!). And then of course, Alex the Cruise Director who got the job after Karl had been here for many years – it could have been a little intimidating especially as so many guest have known Karl. Alex is a fantastic Cruise Director and has the wonderful qualities of humour, adventure and professionalism, overplayed by a deep passion for diving. This was our 5th trip on the Seven Seas and we’re already looking forward to cruising with you again in April 2020 (and beyond!). A final BIG THANK YOU to the Seven Seas office crew – Candra and Guteri – who are so very patient with us and our lack of attention to detail. Special thanks to Guteri who worked amazing magic to sort out my mistake with airline flight bookings!!! Terima Kasih banyak!!
