Cheng Ho - Sep 17Verified review

This was my first Liveaboard experience and I loved it. The boat is great, well maintained and clean with good cabins. Service was excellent - I felt we were well looked after during our whole stay. I am vegetarian and the crew and chef did a great job of catering to my dietary needs. Overall an excellent trip!
