Play and Win – Announcing the results

There was an amazing race for “likes” on our Facebook group page this past week. The prize was an Egyptian diving safari for 2. A tremendous number of “likes” were given to the pictures as we were witnesses to a serious head-to-head race. Only a few hours before the end of the race, it still seemed like the dice may turn…

Let’s start with the most important – the esteemed winner of our game is Stepan Shulga, collecting a total of 654 “likes”. Once again congratulations to Stepan and his substantial voting group of friends :-) . We wish you a great safari filled with lots of things to see! We have already contacted the winner and he can be on his way with a friend to their well-deserved prize of Egyptian safari!

The Winner:

Just to recap:

We called on all our diver and non-diver members between June 8 and 14 to upload pictures onto our Facebook group site with the writing “Andromeda safari” displayed, preferably in the most creative ways. After that things got simple as all was to be done was to collect enough “Likes” to reward the owner of the most enduring and lasting picture with the most “Likes” with an Egyptian safari for 2.

We can say with certainty that our game has reached its purpose – we were able to make a player happy and at the same time we were able to liven up our Facebook community in a usual but effective way. We thank for this all the ones who had posted the pictures and all those who had voted! Of course we are curious to hear about your experiences, suggestions and what you thought of the game.

Best time on Andromeda

Me and my girlfriend had the best time on Andromeda. The boat is huge, cabins are the biggest I have ever seen on any liveaboard. Food was great, what surprised me the most was very healthy style of cooking from the chef. There were always at least 6 or 7 vegetable dishes or various salads. Diving was great, we had great intinerary for our north tour. I loved that we did 4 dives on Thistlegorm, including a nigh dive and very early morning dive, when our group was the only one in the water at that time! I will sure return to Andromda very soon.
