    The 32m M/V Emperor Virgo is a floating luxury resort in the Maldives. Emperor Virgo offers a large, lavish dining room with bar and television for meals and relaxation. On the upper deck guests can lounge on the deck chairs and enjoy drinks at the main bar while enjoying the views. The onboard restaurant serves both western and Asian cuisine and offers a fully equipped bar. MV Virgo has eight well appointed comfortable cabins with en-suite bathrooms and individual climate control.

    A great advantage of the Emperor Virgo is that all diving takes place from a large tender dhoni allowing for much more comfortable space on the liveaboard. The Virgo Maldives dive staff will assist guests with hassle free scuba diving at the best dive sites in the Maldives. The MV Virgo crew provides each guest with superior service. Together, the team will work to ensure every guest about the Virgo enjoys the ultimate scuba diving holiday. The Virgo Maldives schedules diving cruises from August through May.

    very good week of diving Best of Maldives 7 Nights, Maldives in January

    pretty good. the boat could use updating. $20 for internet usage is totally inappropiate for a so called luxury tour The hot tub was taken out therefore the website was wrong. I booked this particular boat because of that,therefore I think a little refund should be offered

    Great diving and better food than expected Best of Maldives 7 Nights, Maldives in January

    The boat Virgo is not the most luxury boat you will find in Maldives, but I had a great time on this boat. The cabin at second deck with large windows is great. Very good food, much better than I expected. The dives was great and our diving instructor was very good - but I also know that one of the tree diving instructors on the boat was not so good, heard from the people in his team. I think the trip was good value for the money, and I will probably come back.

    Shark- and Manta-Tastic Week Sharkastic, Maldives in April

    Had a great week diving with Russ, Jacky and Issey- definitely lived up to the 'Sharkatstic' itinerary...with two great manta dives to boot. Alimatha Jetty and Rangali Madivaru are now in my Top 10 list. The cabin was comfortable, the boat was great, and Chandana and the staff kept us all well fed. Also had a great group of folks to dive with. Would gladly do it again.
