Not sure that words alone can decribe our 3 day/night cruise aboard Merdeka. The scenery was non-stop breathtaking, the waters crystal clear, and the weather was perfect! The boat was comfortable and spacious, the captain and crew were so friendly, and beyond accommodating. The meals were delicious and more that ample for the constant hunger of our three children (14, 11, and 7). There were activities for everyone, young or old, active or idle ... kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, deck jumping (a level of difficulty for all daredevils), caving, hiking, dolphin watching, massages, reading, napping, watching sunsets with a beverage, as well as sunrises with your morning coffee. As a family, we continue to reminisce about this trip. This was truly a special holiday, and one we will definitely plan on repeating.
We are a family of 5, with 3 kids aged 10, 9 and 7 who were lucky enough to do a 3Day/ 3 Night cruise aboard the Merdaka. Wow, what an experience. The trip included walking on deserted beaches, exploring caves on kayaks, evening fishing off the deck, trekking to the top of a small isolated island to see views which were truly breath taking as well as enjoying relaxing massages on the top deck. There was certainly something for everyone! The snorkelling was great too, with beautiful clear waters. We were even lucky enough to see dolphins.
The trip exploring the stunning scenery of the islands around Krabi and Phi Phi, was made extra special by the friendly and accommodating crew of Merdeka, serving fresh food for every meal, and catering for all dietary requirements. The kids were delighted to sample squid for lunch that they had caught the night before!
The boat is spacious allowing adults and kids to have quiet spaces when down time is needed. Overall a fantastic holiday, great fun for all ages and I would definitely recommend a trip.
