There are 8 twin cabins and 2 doubles located on the lower deck and 2 twins plus 1 suite with a double bed on the main deck.

I will come back to the Red Sea

I enjoy a lot in this trip with the people (divers). I didn't like the way to manage the tip at the end of the trip, open envelopes and 2 envelopes, one for the dive guide and the other for the rest of the crew. In fact the dive guide ask me about the quantity that I gave (40€ like your web recommended) because he expected 60€. I think the tip must be confidential, only one enevelope per customer and no 2 open evelopes for all the customers. Merry Xmas

Too many troubles and issues for one week liveaboard

In my opinion, Covid-19 countermeasures on the boat were very poor. One of the guests had high fever for 2 days and was not isolated. After returning home, I tested positive to Covid-19 (my test was done on the day of return). Luckily, I had quite mild symptoms, now recovering after 10 days quarantine. During the first 2 nights, extreme strong diesel gasoline smell in my room and in the rooms of my neighbors on the main deck. This boat is mainly oriented towards French market. This means, if you are planning to communicate while onboard with other guests, learn French first (8 French divers did not speak or did not want to speak any other language - English, German, Spanish, Croatian were options). For me it is clear: never again Vita Xplorer.
