The Scuba Diving Earth Luxury Rating (SDE Lux Rating) is explained on each liveaboard review when you click the “Discover Liveaboard” link, and is my own Liveaboard Luxury Rating I’ve assigned to all liveaboards. Choosing between liveaboards is helped by customer scores, and if you get stuck choosing between two or three liveaboards, where each one has a high customer score out of 10, you can use the SDE Luxury Rating to help narrow down your choice.
Think about it like using Booking.com when searching for the best hotel. Booking.com also use a customer score where each customer rates hotels out of 10. This is similar to the liveaboard customer rating, which is also rated out of 10. But let’s say you only like to stay in hotels rated 8 and above on Booking.com, but you also want the hotel to have WIFI or parking, or to have a swimming pool etc. The features each hotel has is usually secondary to the score out of 10.

How to Celebrate a Birthday. “Celebrating my 73rd birthday on board with my daughter, the crew and other divers was a wonderful and very special experience. Time spent talking with the other divers and the crew. The epic diving including the manta cleaning station and school of devil rays, the various sharks (e.g., woebegone and walking), staggering beautiful coral and abundant and unusual fish life. The services connected with the diving including the terrific dive guides. The nights spent on the deck looking at the stars. All in all a perfect vacation and the Tiare is recommended without any hesitation.” Recommended for: The entire crew and the wonderful customer service. The excellence of the accommodations and the food. The great (and safe) diving).Robert B, United States of America
