Maldives diving safaris with the Princess Rani

You can choose between double bed, twin or triple bed cabins, all of which are very well appointed with personal TV and DVD players, minibar, en-suite bathroom facilities and air-conditioning. Princess Rani is a great liveaboard boat for couples, given the number of double cabins and you can expect English, Italian, French and Spanish all to be spoken so there is no problem being understood.

Facilities are high quality and include the full range of entertainment in the saloon, including TV, DVD, music system, computer with internet as well as movies, games, books and magazines. You'll never be bored! If lounging is more your thing, there are 3 sundecks with plenty of shaded sections as well as sun chairs and mattresses for your comfort. To top it all off there is a Jacuzzi and spa facilities - the icing on the cake of what are great value-for-money Maldives diving safaris.
