MALDIVES Liveaboard Holidays
MV Emperor Atoll
Emperor Atoll is fully licensed to sell soft drinks, beer, wine and spirits. Complimentary tea, coffee and drinking water are available throughout the day. In good weather, we can enjoy meals at the open foredeck table with wonderful views of the archipelago. The food is renowned for its excellent quality with an impressive variety of both local and European dishes. If guests are vegetarian, or have special dietary needs, we will do our best to cater for them so be sure to tell us in advance. Breakfast and lunch are usually buffet style and dinner is generally served seated around the large table on the foredeck.
From the aft deck, steps lead up to the large, partially shaded sun deck above the main saloon where there are comfortable sun loungers and bed mats. The perfect place to enjoy a sundowner and discuss the day’s diving. On the aft deck is a large swim platform with ladder giving easy access to the water. There are fresh water showers and camera wash tanks.
