Great week on the Red Sea

Super friendly crew, great dive locations and great food. The boat itself is a bit old and sometimes it shows: small things break every once in a while, but the crew always fixed them very quickly, so its really not that big of a deal!

First good dives in a long time. Diving with dolphins. Nice time on board with crew and guests.

Very very poor liveaboard

None - very unsatisfactory even for a middle range liveaboard. No cold beer on boat on day of arrival - no welcome drink or opportunity to meet other guests on first night socially Ice only provided occasionally Our room was very poor with a flood from the portholes half way through the trip saturating all our clothes in sea water (we had two day city break in Athens afterwards and had tide marks and stained clothing). Crew did not attempt to assist with drying our clothes Bins in bathroom emptied sporadically (cannot flush paper in toilet) - Only had hot/medium hot water once for a shower in our room Only soap provided was liquid handwash - I had to find a bar of soap from another guest and one of the crew let me have some shampoo I had diarrhoea from day two of the trip that lasted throughout and still does - this meant I lost 4 dives and felt/feel very unwell Food was very poor and I believe not kept properly - this excludes the deserts which were very well made and presented. Itinerary was not put up to give the guest the plan for the day. More than once when I asked the dive leader the dive times I was advised I would be told later - she has since apologised Limited number of dive sites (we did the Thistelgorm 4 times) Bedlinen was not changed nor were beds made during the week. The sheets were in a very poor condition Our room number 1 was directly above engines and there was a constant smell of diesel. Our Nitrox fills were usually only 30% and not the standard 32% We told the dive leader on our arrival that we would like a different room (we were given room 1) and that we were longstanding Emperor guests (15 years +) but she did not believe us and said later that we had only booked twice previously. It seems that if you do not book with Emperor direct they disregard you. The last night of the trip when we were due to leave the boat to go into town we had to wait to have a chat with the CEO. We were very unhappy about this as we were not given the opportunity to decline and furthermore we were unable to raise issues as the dive leader also participated in the meeting which meant we would have had to confront and be critical to her face/personally. We will not be travelling again with Emperor. The treatment we received was very poor and displayed a total lack of customer care. If a guest advises that they have been travelling on a boat numerous times previously, I recommend the company defaults to accept the assertion rather than confront the guest that they were lying!!!! Shockingly bad. I did not mention the lewd manner of the "Gas Man" who stared unashamedly at female guests, commented in whispered voice, and made inappropriate physical contact. This I raised during the trip and was told that the crew member would be approached regarding this.

Good trip

The Red Sea never disappoints - but the trip route ended up disappointing and the boat and zodiacs had a few issues
