Completed in 2009, the steel hull MY Andromeda is almost 40 metres long with a sleek, stable design and high-quality interior. Accommodating up to 26 guests, she runs 7 and 14 night Red Sea diving cruises to the best sites in Sudan as well as Egypt.

This new boat is the sister to the MY Cassiopeia and is another first-rate custom-built Egypt liveaboard. All 13 air-conditioned twin/double cabins are spacious and elegantly furnished and have en-suite facilities.

You can expect high quality throughout the boat and there are plenty of communal areas to relax between dives. There is an upper sun deck and shaded area with sun beds and cushions, and there is a lounge area in front of the air-conditioned saloon that provides great views. Internet is provided free of charge on the boat.

An extra delight is the Shisha room: decorated like a traditional Arabian café. Here you can enjoy a hot drink and indulge in original Egyptian Shisha tobacco. Oriental music playing in the background adds to the authentic atmosphere for a memorable experience.

The large dive deck means kitting-up is made easy. There is plenty of room for storing your scuba gear and camera rinse tanks and storage space are provided too. The deck is huge and specifically designed to accommodate groups of scuba divers entering the water at the same time. Andromeda provides diver locator devices for each buddy team to improve in-water guest safety.

If you are looking for a top-quality liveaboard and excellent service while you cruise the Red Sea, whether it's in Sudan or Egypt, the MY Andromeda is a great choice. Departures are on Sundays.
