The Emperor Superior is well named since it is indeed superior to the vast number of liveaboards that operate around the northern Red Sea.

Cutting an impressive figure, this sleek white deluxe liveaboard boat has some of the features that the top-end Emperors enjoy such as outstanding accommodation, food and facilities, all marking the MY Emperor Superior out as one of the finest luxury liveaboards around.

At 37 metres long, it offers spacious comfort to no more than 25 divers, across 13 twin-berth or double bed en-suite cabins per trip. Purpose-built for liveaboard diving in the Red Sea, the cabins are roomy, air-conditioned and feature private, en-suite bathroom facilities.

The Emperor Superior's ample space is fully utilised by a huge saloon with a segregated dining area, 2 sundecks, and a spacious dive deck and platform. The semi-shaded sundeck on the upper deck is comfortable and enormous, as good a lounging area as you will find on any liveaboard. As with the rest of the Emperor fleet of Red Sea liveaboards, Emperor Superior has a Wi-Fi system which operates except when at sites very distant from shore. Internet usage is free of charge.

On the dive deck, the EANx membrane system supplies free nitrox for trained divers. There is a camera table and there are 2 motorised dinghies and a minimum of 2 guides per trip to ensure an attentive and speedy diving service.

    Customer reviews:

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "The liveaboard was absolutely fantastic! The dive guards were super knowledgeable about all the dive sites and the staff were always there when you needed them. At no point of my trip was I annoyed with the staff. The bathrooms of the boat could use a bit of an update, but other than that I was pleased with my cabin and the shared spaces of the boat." - , USA, 24 May 2015 ...

    Customer rating - Very good
    "Had a good trip, excellent diving and the wrecks were spectacular. Excellent all around. Only complaint was sharing a cabin and had the top bunk, which was awkward to get in and out of, especially with a stranger in the bottom bunk. Note: I did not raise this issue with the operator, as I knew there were no other accommodation available. Just slept most nights on the top deck. Only reason not a 5 out of 5 is the bunk bed as mentioned above and the fact that we spent the first and last nights on the boat tied up in the harbour. Would have rather had 5 nights on the boat and spent the other 2 in a hotel." - , USA, 14 January 2011 ...

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "Emperor get 5/5 for the way they run things. Best feature was post-dive check-in using the scuba tanks and the dive stats log. Minimal risk of being left behind, which is more than I can say for shore dive operations at places such as Titanic." - , South Africa, 28 February 2010 ...
