    Anyone heard of this liveaboard in Indonesia, so far they only have sleek brochure and nothing else.
    The maiden voyage is still like 6 months into the future but the boat is already almost completely full for close to 2 years in advance which seems unbelievable. I wonder if anybody knows anything what is going on.

    It's part of the Explorer fleet, according some advertising in Alert Diver I half-remember.

    No worries. We are very excited to introduce Velocean and will post photos of the boat as soon as she splashes in the water.

    Not sure however what is going with the reservation system. When looking into the schedule and availability some trips far into the future show all 10 cabins available yet there is no space for a single diver. This sounds bizarre, most other liveaboards allow for shareable cabins. On top of that Velocean advertises it is equipped with two ‘single’ cabins which makes even less sense that no single diver is allowed.

    Perhaps the single cabins have been sold already.

    Like I said above, if it shows 10 cabins available then all cabins are available, including the singles, the math doesn’t make sense. Also the problem with shareable cabins remain unless there is specific policy not to share cabins but it is nowhere stated.

    Ah ok I’m following. I was thinking there was 10 cabins and 2 single cabins. I could see them not allowing singles into the standard cabins. Maybe they will open them up last minute if they haven’t sold.

    Just to update, they sent me a revised list that makes more sense. Apparently they do allow sharable cabins. I finally booked with them a 11/2021 trip (single cabin).
