Emperor Superior - Red Sea Liveaboard vessel

Cutting an impressive figure, this sleek white deluxe liveaboard 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 24 divers, across 12 twin-berth en-suite cabins per trip. Purpose-built for Red Sea liveaboard diving, 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 equipped with a hot tub, 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 wifi 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 dive guides per trip to ensure an attentive and speedy dive service.

Customer reviews: 

"Emperor get 5/5 for the way they run things. Best feature was post-dive diver check-in using the dive 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." - Rob Koch, South Africa ...

"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." - Scott Curry, USA ...
