Amazing boat and even better crew

The crew leader/dive guide, Sonia, is fantastic; so knowledgeable and experienced. She has an amazing way with people and made everyone feel comfortable and well cared for as well as bringing a great sense of humour to the trip. The second dive guide, Eric, is also very helpful and is great at balancing a laid-back attitude with an attention to safety. The rest of the crew are amazingly helpful and diligent. They are constantly cleaning and helping out all the customers. They will help you get kitted/unkitted every dive and it’s so nice to be greeted with a warm drink every time you come out the water. The boat itself is beautiful. Comfortable rooms with A/C and hot showers. Plenty of areas to relax inside and outside the boat. The quality of the furnishings was also surprisingly good. Last but not least, the food! The most delicious 3 course meals 3 x a day as well as lovely cooked snacks during the day (I was a particular fan of the samosas). I would pay good money for this quality of food in a restaurant so to be treated to it 3 x a day every day is a real luxury.

Dive the way you want

They just let you dive the way you want. As a photographer I could say for several minutes doing a shot. You don't have to follow the guides. But we have few space for cameras...

Dive packed and great value

Dive guides and crew were just awesome, the itinerary was also very good. Boat size was good as was the number of divers we had which was under the max, we had 17, anymore would feel very cramped. Great value for the money.

Diving the wrecks of the red sea - it was a trip of a lifetime - I will be back to the southern red sea now that I have done the north, I will choose Emperor again because it was such a great experience. This trip is right up there with some of my best dive trips ever

Sharks, sharks and again sharks. The boat was very confortable. The crew was very kind and always willing to help. The food was delicious and not so spicy. The dive guides has a sharp eye to spot interesting marine life and let us have very long dives which is very kind of them. We are looking forward diving with Liveabord again for sure!

Great dive experience!

The dive guides Ana and Sergio are great. The boat is good, the food is good (but not great) and the Thistlegorm, and the Abu Nhumas wrecks worths the trip!
