Egypt liveaboard the Blue Seas in the Red Sea

All the cabins on board take advantage of the spacious hull and are furnished with modern fittings. En-suite facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning are standard. There are double cabins available on the upper deck and twin cabins below. There is also a Honeymoon Suite, occupying the whole of the lower bow section, with its own TV and DVD player.

The communal areas include a very large saloon on the main deck, with a separate dining area that features marble-topped dining tables. The saloon offers plenty of comfortable and stylish seating to make use of the well-stocked bar. The bar lounge on the upper deck also has a TV and is often used for colourful photographic analysis of the day's diving in the Red Sea. If you are keen to make use of the sun and work on your tan whilst you're in Egypt, Blues Seas has a large tanning area at the bow of the upper deck and a partially shaded flybridge, complete with sun loungers.

The diving deck is perhaps the stand-out feature of Blue Seas, there seems to be enough space for twice as many divers. So if plenty of room on the deck deck is a key feature that you look for in a liveaboard, the Blues Seas will meet your requirement. There's also nitrox available, a camera table and charge points, plenty of rinse tanks and a bathroom.

Pssst... and a quiet word about the food. Most guest feedback from trips on Blue Seas mentions how great the food was. Rumour has it that the chef has been headhunted several times by other boats, so let's hope this liveaboard can keep him and continue to serve up some of the tastiest food in Egypt.
