MV Emperor Explorer

MV Emperor Explorer, Maldives

The newest of the Emperor Fleet sets sail this August. Flagship Emperor Explorer is a contemporary, spacious liveaboard where fine accommodation and service is standard. At 42 metres she accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins all with air-con.

Add to that her Spa, spacious diving and relaxation areas and she’s a winner.

  • Upper Deck – 2 double with single bed and 1 double
  • Main Deck – 2 double with single bed
  • Lower Deck – 5 double with single bed and 3 double

If you are travelling alone, double with single bed cabins can be booked on a twin share basis with one guest using the double bed and the other the single. To guarantee the double bed a supplement of €35 per week is charged. When the cabin is booked by a couple the single bed can be used as a sofa. A supplement is charged for the Upper and Main deck cabins.

The main deck has an open-air dining area and a comfortable air-conditioned saloon has a bar, sofas and tables for you to relax and watch TV. For those seeking pure relaxation there is also a spa. A complimentary glass of wine is served with dinner.

The upper deck boasts a covered, open area ideal for watching photos and footage from your diving or just relaxing, star gazing and soaking up the Maldivian ambience.

The sundeck is perfect for catching those sunrays or having a reviving nap.

All diving is done from her large dhoni tender, giving you more living space on board and getting you to the perfect dive spot every time. She offers free NITROX, all diving and safety equipment and four dive guides.

Non-divers are very welcome and get a free snorkelling kit + $50 voucher to spend on board.
