Emperor launches new, longer ‘Best of Maldives’ itinerary

Best of Maldives

New 14-night ‘Best of Maldives’ on Emperor Serenity, 12 – 26 November, 2016

This longer 14-night Best of Maldives is the best way to experience the magic of the Maldives, covering iconic dive sites such as Male Atolls, Lhaviyani Atoll, Noonu, Raa and Baa Atolls, Rasdhoo Atoll and Ari Atolls. Combining top quality diving with the promise of ‘bucket list’ marine sightings and the superb hotel-style of Emperor Serenity, this is destined to be a Maldives triumph.

Sailing from Male, Emperor Divers Maldives’ liveaboard, Emperor Serenity, brings a class of her own with contemporary styling and plenty of space where fine accommodation and service is standard. This 40 metre boat easily accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins, all with air-con, so even a two-week holiday just won’t feel long enough.

7-night trips can also be arranged on the same itinerary if the 14 night voyage is too long by using domestic flights to and from Male giving guests the choice of joining the outbound or return legs.

Included is full board, free Nitrox, around 37 dives (14-night trip), local transfers, a visit to a deserted island for a BBQ under the stars and the chance to dive with manta, whale sharks, sharks, turtles and myriad marine life as well as a City tour with local guide.

All diving is done from Emperor Serenity’s large dhoni tender, giving more living space on board and getting guests to the perfect dive spot every time. Four dive guides provide a premium service. Non-divers are very welcome and get free snorkelling equipment + $50 voucher to spend on board.

The cost for 14 nights is £3245/€4270 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin.

The 7 night trip is £1623/€2135 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin. These prices do not include international or domestic flights.

Emperor Divers Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.
