Is Dhoni Stella for you?

If you want freedom, excitement, adventure and a small amount of indulgence, then yes, it probably is.

First cruise with family

We have travelled with our two children and the crew have been fabulous looking after them.

    Many thanks for the great 10 days on board the Stella! Mallah, you are a very good leader and divemaster, picked great dive sites, and kept a watchful eye on our safety. Kudey, you are an outstanding captain navigating through high winds and the best fishing sites. Suranga, we enjoyed all the meals you have prepared for us! We are very impressed that you can do so much variety and we loved the traditional Maldivian flavors. Shobuj, thanks for everything you did. Until we meet again, all the best, John and Kathy.

    Ciao Max! E' andato tutto perfettamente, bellissima esperienza. L'equipaggio era veramente cordiale e disponibile. Immersioni stupende e barca veramente comoda! Torneremo di sicuro, magari una volta a Novembre per visitare un altra zona... A presto! Glauco

    Hi Max, we had a lovely 10 days on the boat, really relaxing and so many stunning memories. We’ll write a more comprehensive review for you when we return to the UK. Many thanks again for hosting us on such a wonderful holiday. We’re relaxing now at the resort, with our bodies feeling the occasional swaying motion to remind us of Stella 1. Have a great New Year.

    We are wrapping up our charter this morning and we had an incredible time. Over Reef was absolutely perfect for our family, and it didn’t feel like a maiden cruise (though I know the crew worked very hard to address the small issues that always come up with a new boat). In particular, I want to highlight how great all of the crew was. They really went out of their way to make it a great experience for us, and particularly Nasru and Adam, who were always highly knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to be around. The food was also surprisingly good.

    We truly enjoyed life on Stella and were now getting used to the rhythm on board: breakfast, snorkeling, lunch, snorkeling, afternoon tea and evening cosiness. We navigated 2-3 hours per day, some days weighing anchor already before breakfast. But this morning we could sleep a little longer and woke up at our beautiful reef just off Gaalee with the now familiar luminous blue and turquoise stripes. I thanked the higher powers, thinking I would never have enough of standing here on Stella's deck in the hazy morning sun, enjoying this fascinating color play. And the precious silence, apart from the sound of happy splashes from Jens and Christian's morning swim. Lone.

    Farven Blå (The Color Blue) - by Lone E. Valentinsen

    "Maldives. Small, snow-white paradise islands placed like a row of pearls on a deep blue sea surrounded by turquoise lagoons. The water is so clear that it almost hurts the eyes, and high swaying palms is the only thing that breaks the eyes path to the horizon. So is the Maldives. But it is so much more. A small family had the chance to experience this on their own body and soul during a 10-day boat trip through seven atolls. They embark as the only passengers on a small wooden ship to enjoy the amazing life both beneath and above the water. But also with the desire to gain insight into everyday life in the Maldives, which is facing major changes. Consequences of climate change, political disagreement and rapid globalization is the visible backdrop on the stage of the fantastic and special nature. Join Stella as she sets out from the Laamu Atoll and into the adventure - which also brings new friendships and time for reflection".

    Hi Max, Just wanted to say a massive thanks to you and the team - we had the best time. Your service prior to booking, the boat, the food, the islands/things we did were all amazing. And to top it off the crew were unbelievable - seriously the best. Thanks again to all for making it a honeymoon we’ll never forget. We really hope to come back one day soon. Cheers, Phil and Marcella.
