    My second liveboard on Elite South and St. Johns (Marsa Ghalib Departure), Egypt in December

    Very nice dives, well meet on board by crew and guides. Nice mix of nationalities among the guest. Sadly my cabinsealing was all wet and was leaking because of earlier wave. Didn't feel like the cabin lived up to standard feeling murky and damp for three days. The crew helped and did there best. Otherwise realy nice food very nice as always and guides very nice people . Sadly Internet was down even when there was reception witch is very sad and bad since that was one of my chooses for this boats specific . To be able to keep in touch. It not managed better by company the can't market it like that. The favour is very appreciated among Al guest if working

    Great diving experience in the Red Sea South and St. Johns (Marsa Ghalib Departure), Egypt in May

    The food was exceptional and diving was quite nice. We couldn't go to St. John's because of the weather, but Deadalus and Elphinstone totally made up for it. The crew made the best decision under this circumstances, but also involved us in the decision. Saw hammerhead sharks, oceanic white tips, turtles and loads of colorful reef fishes. The crew is very nice and helpful all the time, so you can enjoy your diving holiday. Highly recommended if you plan a trip to the Red Sea.

    Excellent hospitarity Crew and Guides Simply the Best (Marsa Ghalib departure), Egypt in August

    There are 10 nationalities on board. I really enjoyed not only underwater but also boat life. There held BBQ dinner on the top deck, every one danced and laughed so much. We started the week as stranger and we ended the week as friends. クルーのホスピタリティ、オーガナイズされたシステム、エジプトとは思えません。お勧めです。

    Amazing trip, really well organised and fantastic value for money Reefs and Wrecks (Hurghada departure), Egypt in December

    I was really impressed with the whole trip, from arriving at the airport, everything was taken care of and organised really well. The boat was very comfortable and well maintained and the crew went out of their way to make everything as good as possible. The diving was really good and showcased the best that the area has to offer. Will definitely be returning in the future.

    The best way to dive! Possibly the best way to travel! Reefs and Wrecks (Hurghada departure), Egypt in December

    After having a rather disappointing experience in Egypt due to our baggage having been severely delayed, arriving at Hurgharda Airport to find an Emperor transfer bus (Who was collecting other guests, we had missed a connecting flight due to lost baggage) and a friendly well spoken driver who immediately began to put us at ease, offering us wifi to contact our worried family and calling the office to make other required arrangements. This was just the beginning, but most definitely characteristic of the amazing service we came to expect from the staff of the Emperor Elite and Emperor staff in general. Our cruise was amazing, the boat was clean and well kept and well stocked, we wanted for nothing. The chefs did a wonderful job, providing plenty well prepared delicious dishes throughout. The crew on board were friendly and helpful. Exceptionally so. The diving was extraordinary and will remain a cherished memory for as long as I live. The dive guides were impeccable and will remain friends for a long time to come. I would most definitely recommend a trip to the red sea with Emperor and if possible on the Elite.

    Outstanding Experience with an amazing crew and Co-Divers! Reefs and Wrecks (Hurghada departure), Egypt in December

    This was our first Dive Safari, and it was an amazing experience. The Emperor Elite is a spacious and comfortable ship and has all that you need on board for a great safari experience. The crew is extremely helpful in every aspect; The Diveguides, Momo and Saad look after each and everyone - you can be sure to have lots of great dives. The Emperor Elite is really well equipped - being provided with Nitrox is a great plus, and there is enough comfortable options in the lounge area to charge lamps, computers, cameras etc... This cruise was very special as it was a group of 26 guests, from 15! different Nations - ranging from 20 - 1000+ dives, not only it has been great fun to get to know many different people - but you could also learn something from each and everyone. Momo and Saad were our guides - and I never had such professional briefings prior diving in my previous 5+ years of diving - they are wonderful guides and extremely nice people. But that is true for all the crew on board. And the food the chefs create on board throughout the day, is nothing but stunning - super tasty and nicely presented - and with a variety that there is something for everybody. A big thank you to everyone there!!
