When it comes to modern Red Sea diving liveaboards that offer value for money, it really is difficult to see past the 35 metre MY Eternity. The saloon is spacious and bright with large windows and lots of sofa seating to watch the large flat-screen or contact the outside world by renting one of the onboard mobile internet USB cards. The dining area in the saloon is spacious with glass-topped dining tables and chairs, and there's a bar lounge on the upper deck with an additional TV and computer for guest use.
The flybridge serves as a sundeck and is equipped for relaxation and soaking up the Red Sea sun with proper sun loungers and chairs, bean bags, comfy seating and a music system. There's also an open air shaded air, if you prefer the fresh air without UVs.
The cabin arrangements offer guests a good range of diver accommodation, all of a high standard with air-conditioning and private bathrooms. There are several double bed suites with personal TV/DVD players and standard twin bed cabins with plenty of space for luggage storage.
Diving in the Red Sea is what most guests come here for, and there's always plenty to see, whether you choose a southern cruise or the Sinai Peninsula and wrecks. The MY Eternity is ahead of the game here too with free nitrox for all qualified divers.
2 motorised dinghies with dive guides, a hardwood dive deck and platform with charging points for batteries, deck toilet and showers, make up the rest of the scuba facilities. Eternity could be at the top of the pile for a very long time when it comes to high quality and top value Red Sea diving liveaboards.
