One Liveaboard feedback for “MV Marco Polo

  1. Very nice crew, great food! The boat itself could use an upgrade but with the price, ones can’t complain! Diving the Similan was incredible and I’ve seen 3 whale sharks at richelieu rock… totally worth the 1000 bucks and beyond haha!

    Happy bubbles!
