Hello - this is Gabrielle from MSV AMIRA. I would like to comment on the
above report. First of all - thanks Victor, I am glad, you had an amazing
dive holiday on AMIRA!  MSV AMIRA is 170 ft (52m) - while AMIRA is SWISS/

Turkey, Poland, Denmark, Netherlands,  Austria, France, UK  - and also from
Asia.  Our dive Ratio is 4/5:1 dive guide. MSV AMIRA has 8 double/twin bed
cabins and 2 single cabins! - maximum 18 GUESTS.  I am glad, dear Victor,
you like out food and that you did not lose weight!! Most divers gain wight
while aboard AMIRA ..:) thanks Victor and terima kasih to our dedicated,
hard working CREW  -  Gabrielle - MSV AMIRA
