As a James Bond fan since kids ages I was absolutely excited to hear that my next live aboard vessel was a former 007 movie location of “The man with the golden gun“.
The Junk was the cruising gadget of the villain Scaramanga played by Christoper Lee. We were picked up in Phuket,Thailand, in Patong bay going for a cruise in the Andaman Sea, covering the Similan Islands, Tachai Island and Mu Ko Surin underwater National Park.
The diving was great, the guides were sympathic, savant and fun, so there was nothing to critize here. Space on the dive deck was plenty and the crew was hyper friendly and helpful.
The cabins were well kept everyday and the food was always really tasty, I did not find anything to nag around and I am picky when it comes to food…
I also was lucky with the other customer, who were all fine and no dim-wits on board, which is a real problem on liveaboards as you cannot run away. So all in all the Junk is definitely a ship I would recommend to others and visit again, as I really had a great time on it!
(Oh, and I will update the post with some images of the beautiful shippee, too!
