See the Red Sea: A Review of the King Snefro Liveaboard and PADI Travel thumbnail

It’s no secret I had a magical time underwater in Sharm El Sheikh. But what about onboard the boat? Liveaboard reviews can be tough to find, and I feel like it’s the kind of thing you really want an honest personal assessment of — considering there’s no escape once you’re onboard!
