We really enjoyed our time on the Merdeka. It is certainly not a pure boat for divers. But I think that is also in the description. It's primarily about having fun and relaxing, not ripping off as many dives as possible.
We were only four guests, including three divers, except for the wonderful dive guide Matt. Dives were very relaxed, even the preparations. But that was certainly also due to our small group. Against this background, the price / performance ratio was absolutely fine for me. The boat is already very old and with more than eight guests (without dive guide) I would not like to have to experience that.
The crew was always very helpful, also the kitchen did very well in my opinion.
Also the check in and information from Spaboat was easy, smooth and fast. Thanks for that as well.
I had no regrets, it was fantastic. Also in light of the fact that this was now my third liveaboard in Thailand.
Visited dive sites: Koh Phi Phi, Koh Haa, Koh Rok, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Phuket on a 5 Days / 4 Nights Liveaboard Trip in Thailand.
