The MV Ocean Divine, previously known as the Ocean Dancer, is a luxury steel hulled boat that provides an outstanding 5-star service, unforgettable meals and, most important, amazing Maldives liveaboard diving trips. Comfort and service quality are key components of what makes their cruises special.

Sleeping 14 divers, the boat is beautifully appointed with a huge air-conditioned saloon, where there is plenty of lounging space as well as all the entertainment facilities you could wish for, including large plasma TV, DVD player, music system, Wi-Fi internet facilities, books and games.

The liveaboard cabins are of a similarly high standard, all featuring 1 double bed and 1 single bed, telephones and high-spec ensuite bathrooms. Each cabin also has the added luxury of a flat screen TV and DVD player for your in-room entertainment.

There is a 16 metre dive boat which accompanies the Ocean Divine, and which can whisk you to the Maldives dive sites in next to no time. All diving takes place from this accompanying boat, complete with its own compressors and nitrox system, so the dive deck on the Ocean Divine has been converted to a partially shared relaxation area, providing even more space for its guests.

As if the space and comfort of the boat was not enough, the Ocean Divine also has a spa service which provides a range of massage services and skin treatments during trips.

Customer reviews:

Customer rating - Excellent
"The boat was fantastic with great facilities. The equipment was good. We used our own so I can't comment on the rental equipment. However, the dive boat was very nice and spacious. The staff was extremely helpful and always seemed to be right there when I needed help." - , USA, 9 March 2011...
