Great but not perfect

Overall the liveaboard experienced is what I expected. However. A Certain" crew seamen on my boat, if maybe having an "off day" or just having no patients, can show a very bad attitude, even to the point of cursing in their own language thinking the guest will understand. I can tolerate this, but here are certain reactions that I feel was unacceptable to the point I wanted to say something to that person.

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.

First time Diving the Red Sea

Having only 10 guest on a boat that accommodates 25 was very good for livability and diving. The diving itinerary was good for my first visit to the Red Sea, and we even saw Thresher sharks in the distance. The food, diving and rest schedules were well thought out too.

A really fun adventure- I’d highly recommend it!

Not having dove for a while, I found the the dive guides very patient and helpful- they helped get my diving skills back up to par quickly. Diving and interacting with a pod of dolphins was amazing, as was exploring many of the wrecks. A superb trip!

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...

Wonderful Red Sea trip with new friends

I loved the beautiful soft and hard corals. I would say this coral might even be superior to The Great Barrier Reef. Lots of schools of fish: triggerfish, banner fish, butterfly fish, bat fish, tuna, snapper, etc. It was amazing seeing a school of yellow snapper that seemed to go on for miles!! Huge napoleon! Schools of dolphins who "performed" for us and looked very happy! Beautiful Gorgonian fans. The multiple nationalities we had as passengers made it so fun! The boat crew were great. The diving allowed for independence and guided dives, whichever you were comfortable with.

good experience for our 1st liveaboard in red sea

great dive with dolphins! nice wrecks like SS Thistlegorm and Giannis D due to windy weather we only did one dive in Shark & Yolanda, and skip the night dive at SS Thistlegorm but in general it is still a very nice liveaboard trip, enjoy the time with our guides Zizo, Sonia, and all crew members and other passengers on board.

Red sea adventure

The "Famous 5" it's balanced route between beautiful reefs and stunning wrecks. You can find several hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey reefs and even whale shark during one single dive. Proffesional crew and dive guides will help you in case of any problem, you will not worry anything except how to remember all your impressions of diving. Diving and snorkeling with dolphins was one of the most excited thing during the trip. Highly recomend Emperor fleet.

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.

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!
