1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The people -- particularly the crew of Felicity. Amazing, welcoming, thoughtful, and enthusiastic.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It's always hard to tell, but I don't feel that we had a major negative impact. And we appreciated how much the operator thought about how to limit environmental impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fabulous!

Hi Ardice Thank you for taking time to write your review, it is appreciated. Great to hear you and your family enjoyed your time on board Felicity with UB and the crew. Was lovely to be able to meet with you all upon arrival following all our correspondence, nice to be able to put faces to names. As a team we work hard to support and promote sustainable and responsible tourism. We are only too aware that the environment in which we live and travel with our guests is fragile and under threat in many ways. I hope that the presentations that UB provided and the discussions you would I am sure have had would have assisted in increasing your knowledge of various aspects of marine life, coral growth and sea grass. As a local business one of the aspects I am most proud of is that with the exception of myself, all our team are local and all our revenue remains in the Maldives with local businesses or individuals, a business profile that is very unique in the Maldives. Therefore all our guests can travel with us safe in the knowledge that their vacation money has a direct impact on local people and communities. Thanks again for taking time to feedback on your trip and UB is already looking forward to welcoming you again! Have a great festive period! Kind Regards Ruth

Dear Ann, Delighted that you and your family enjoyed your cruise with us. From the photographs that your husband sent I see that his fishing skills kept you in good supply of fresh fish throughout the week! As a business we are proud that with the exception of myself all our team of guides are local and that we partner with only local operators ensuring it is local people and business who benefit financially. Whilst I am a local island girl at heart myself, cruising is definitely one of the best ways to explore the Maldives and cover a large area in a short period of time and it certainly sounds as though you experienced the best our island paradise has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards. Ruth.
