Booking / Enquiry

Emperor Serenity is a brand-new (2016) large Maldives diving Liveaboard vessel purpose built to meet the demands of discerning guests who want to enjoy luxurious Maldives diving cruises. The boat is 40 metres long and has several decks for accommodation, communal dining & relaxing in groups or in private. To maximise space and comfort on board and to enable scuba divers to be dropped off and picked up efficiently at exact locations. Diving is done from the 20 metre tender, known locally as a ‘dhoni’.

There are 13 air-conditioned en-suite twin & double cabins on three decks. 8 cabins are on the liveaboard boat’s lower deck and each is wonderfully appointed and comfortable. On the main deck there are two large cabins at the front of the ship, both with double beds and a single. In the middle of the main deck is the large air-conditioned saloon with a bar, which is perfect for enjoying social time and maybe a drink or two at the end of the day. At the rear of the main deck is a large and comfortable open-air dining area. On the upper deck there are three more cabins (2 large double & 1 twin) and a spacious lounge, where the home entertainment system can be used to view the day’s photographs or underwater videos. On top of the boat is a huge sundeck that can be enjoyed throughout the day for sunbathing and for stargazing at night.

Emperor Serenity dives all year round at the Maldives’ best scuba diving sites, alternating areas to make the most of the weather & sea conditions and the marine life. The two main itineraries are ‘Best of Maldives’ and ‘Manta Madness’ and are in general 8D/7N & 17-18 dives. Some longer trips are also available and can be seen on the schedule. The experienced and professional dive guides ensure that every dive is safe and enjoyable, and ideally suited to the guests’ level, experience and expectations. They speak English and know the seas, the liveaboad boat, and the resident & migratory marine life.

On board the Liveaboard, the crew take great care of guests’ every need. Housekeeping services ensure the cabins are always clean and welcoming. The chefs & waiting staff provide & serve sumptuous meals throughout the day that will satisfy every taste and appetite. The food on board Emperor Serenity is a perfect mixture of local and western cuisine. This Maldives diving liveaboard is a cut above nearly all others at the Maldives, and certainly anything in the same price range. Booking early is recommended.

MV Emperor Serenity Transfer Details

Booking / Enquiry

There are free transfers from and back to Male International Airport at the beginning and end of each cruise. These are scheduled transfers, at set times. However, there are three pick up times (11.00am, 4.00pm and 10.30pm) and two check out times (7.00am & 9.00am). The liveaboard boat is moored very near to the airport and the drive is usually no more than 10-15 minutes. Guests staying at a local hotel before or after their Emperor Divers cruise need to visit the airport to join the transfers. Those who need to be collected at a time outside the schedule can contact us or the team to arrange inexpensive private transfers.
