Here are just two from many Feefo feedbacks we've been getting:

Sylvia & Les Randall Coles
Dived with Emperor Marsa Alam

"Excellent diving & service yet again. Professional dive centre & boat crew.
We have been diving with Emperor Divers Marsa Alam for 9 years plus & as always we get excellent service with excellent diving. Both dive boats are excellent but Captain Mohammad and his excellent crew must be congratulated. Cook is brilliant with lovely lunches & hot chocolate drinks are given out after a dive, all deck hands are always keen to help & look after the guests well. We very much appreciate the extra help they give us as older divers!

Captain Mohammad is a font of knowledge & it is amazing how over the last 15 years our lives have crossed many times before ... He runs a very efficient boat & deserves praise & a thank you.

All the dive guides are great & safety is always paramount. Taki, Liza & the two Egyptian guides (I apologise for not writing down your names. Sorry.) and  Paul. All of them will always try & find something extra on a dive. Lovely memories. The very large pod of Spinner dolphins Captain Mohammad spotted & slowed the boat for us all to observe these wonderful creatures who came to play in the bow waves. Feather tail Ray & Eagle Rays at the end of 2 dives & turtles & a myriad of Red Sea marine life etc.

Thank you to ALL staff including bottle fillers, drivers, office staff and thank you to Tracy & Luke Atkinson for their hard work in making Marsa Alam dive centre run so efficiently & be so friendly."

Dived the Red Sea on Emperor Echo

"Marvellous all round.
Great varied dive itinerary. Knowledgeable, friendly & professional guides. Safety first was always paramount. Boat was in great condition. All round service was excellent. Thank you, we'd certainly book with Emperor again!"

"We started in North Malé to South Malé then further south to Vaavu and Meemu and back to Malé.
 
In Alimatha we had our first shark encounters on the first day. We saw many very big nurse sharks, huge sting rays and some black tip sharks. A spectacular dive.
 
In Meemu Atoll we had quite good current with big schools of jacks, eagle rays and many young grey reef sharks. Using a reef hook made this dive quite comfortable and drifiting into the channel was just fun! No wonder why the call Vanhuravalhi Kandu 'Happy corner'. In the channels we spotted some turtles and saw plenty of colourful anemones with their clown fish.
 
After sharks sightings on almost every dive we dove Kurali and watched some manta rays getting cleaned.
 
In Vaavu we had gorgeous soft corals in Fotteyo and Golden Wall. We were accompanied by some curious batfish, barracudas and turtles. On a night dive we had tons of small stuff like nudibranches, ghost-pipe fish, cleaning shrimps, mating octopus and a Spanish dancer!
 
Emperor Atoll is the smallest Emperor Liveaboard in the Maldives. I really love the salon that looks like a british library and with only 12 guests it was a very both friendly and familiar. The Crew is just lovely and made this trip unforgettable! High recommended company."
 
 
 
 
 
 

Emperor Asmaa's Red Sea Rave Reviews

| No TrackBacks

 

Emperor Asmaa

 

Emperor Asmaa is the Red Sea 'Divers' boat with no more than 20 guests on board. She offers a superb 'family' atmosphere from guides and crew and you know we always operate to high Emperor safety and service standards.

Why not come and try our Red Sea Sharks itineraries where we get you in front of the action wherever it is. Or how about our trips to the Deep South giving you 21+ dives in a single week. Then there's the FREE Nitrox, WiFi and red wine at dinner. Perfect!

Read just a couple of recent rave reviews for our lovely liveaboard...

Carol Young
This was my 5th red sea trip with Emperor and they always provide excellent service, knowledge of dive sites and overall professionalism. Cannot rate too highly.

Morten Larsen
The crew did a perfect job. The guides made all the dives a good experience, with the possibility for making our own dives with a good briefing.

This from Rebecca Cooley:
"I just love dealing with Emperor! From the guys in reservations to the team on board its always a real pleasure dealing with their staff. The quality of the food, boat and diving is always excellent. And the level of communication from start to final transfers makes organising for a group much easier. This year we went with the Emperor Superior for their 'Get Wrecked' trip and I couldn't have faulted a single thing.
The staff were all brilliant at both their own jobs and at keeping the holiday makers happy; which can't be as easy as they make it look. The crew were faultless in their duties, the food was excellent and the dive guides (MoMo & Roberto) were patient, funny, very knowledgeable and a real pleasure to dive with. They really helped all the divers with tips and information and all the crew and guides always had a smile and a story.
It was a brilliant week and you have another 15 guests who will have no hesitation to recommend Emperor for any trips. We look forward to our next Emperor adventure soon."
 
And this from Aoife Hughes:
"Without a doubt I would return to them again. I thought their service was outstanding. They were all so kind and friendly the second we came on board... By the end of the week, I had felt so close to them that it felt like they were friends rather than staff. It was an unreal experience and I am definitely returning to them again."
 
And Owen Hughes:
"Great diving, food, staff and experience. The best vacation I have ever had. I was spoiled rotten for a week and had great diving experiences."
 
And last but not least, Pierce Lynch
(this was so lovingly long, we had to cut it a bit):
"Where do I start, everything was beyond my expectations.This is my 5th safari to the Red Sea and my first with the Emperor fleet.The wisdom, knowledge and understanding of Mo-Mo is an asset to any safari,a  true gent and his smile is worth seeing...Roberto, a fantastic diver, yoga instructor and a spirit of life is what people need on a safari...
The food, the food, oh the food.Wonderful, mouth watering...My highest commendations to the chefs.
The dive area is a dream to walk into for people who are not used to a safari like this.The lads are always on hand and close by for anything required. This trip to my partner, myself and every diver there will never be forgotten. All of the crew of the Emperor Superior will always share a place in our hearts. To us a very special, professional and loving group of people that I am happy I spent time to get to know them. I'll be back and so will Abi,that's a promise."

Amanda Cullen joined Emperor Raja Laut for our Raja Ampat, 14-21 March 2018, trip and this is what she said...
 
"I had an amazing week on the boat. Being a girl traveling on my own I could not have felt more comfortable. Everyone working on the boat was absolutely amazing and could not do enough for us. They really went above and beyond. 
 
The boat was immaculate and the food was delicious. Being a vegetarian the chef made sure to make me such delicious alternatives to meat. The rooms were cleaned every morning.
 
I had an absolutely wonderful experience and everyone working on the boat really contributed to that!
 
Really looking forward to doing my next liveaboard. Also divebooker were brilliant to book from. They were very prompt and helpful."

Don't just take our word about the delights of Emperor Echo. 

Over to Julie Despaties and her 5 Star Service Feefo feedback

“Epic first liveaboard experience. This was our first time ever doing a liveaboard! We are over the moon with the experience, the crew was terrific, really we couldn’t have had better service...the food was great!

And our instructor, Hany, truly helped us become better divers throughout our Advance open water certification! We had amazing dives (and lots of work!) but we are so very grateful.

And the boat was wonderful! The company was also amazing; we connected with so many fabulous divers...it was truly epic! We had no expectation coming in but Emperor Echo has now set the bar very high for our next liveaboard! Thank you."

5 Star Service on Emperor Superior, Red Sea
 
"I spent a week on liveaboard Emperor Superior out of Hurghada on the Red Sea, and had the best vacation ever! Both the crew and my fellow divers were excellent. I hadn’t been diving in over 20 years, with the exception of a recent refresher course in a 10 foot pool. However, the dive guides, Omar and Terak were both extremely helpful and patient with me and after the first day I was diving just fine. 
 
Guests can either dive with the guides or on their own. Of our group, most dove on their own, but I always went with the guides. There’s a briefing before each dive where they go over that dive’s plan. There’s typically 4 dives per day. I have multiple food allergies and another dive boat company was unable to accommodate my dietary needs but the cooks on Emperor did a great job cooking for me; the food was great and the only problem was that they cooked far too much for me - I was afraid that soon I wouldn’t have needed my weight belt any more! They also provided free wine with dinner. 
 
The boat was a good size, very comfortable with really nice decks; it was perfect for lounging around and getting to know my new-found friends from all over the world.
 
Emperor Superior was a great value for money, the crew was very personable, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend this liveaboard experience!"
 
and come and enjoy a 'Beth' experience.
