Memorable liveaboardVerified review

We were diving with Emperor Orion in March 2017. Everything went well and there was nothing to complain. Crew was helpful and food was awesome. Dive sites were great. We were lucky to get to dive experienced and friendly guide (Chris). Thank you Divebooker crew for your kind arrangements!
