    Customer Reviews The MY Emperor Superior liveaboard customer reviews listed here have been chosen for you to get a feel for the scuba diving experience you'll get.
    Customer Review

    Amazing boat and even better crewThe crew leader/dive guide, Sonia, is fantastic; so knowledgeable and experienced. She has an amazing way with people and made everyone feel comfortable and well cared for as well as bringing a great sense of humour to the trip. The second dive guide, Eric, is also very helpful and is great at balancing a laid-back attitude with an attention to safety. The rest of the crew are amazingly helpful and diligent. They are constantly cleaning and helping out all the customers.

    They will help you get kitted/unkitted every dive and it’s so nice to be greeted with a warm drink every time you come out the water. The boat itself is beautiful. Comfortable rooms with A/C and hot showers. Plenty of areas to relax inside and outside the boat. The quality of the furnishings was also surprisingly good. Last but not least, the food! The most delicious 3 course meals 3 x a day as well as lovely cooked snacks during the day (I was a particular fan of the samosas). I would pay good money for this quality of food in a restaurant so to be treated to it 3 x a day every day is a real luxury.Recommended for: Crew, Food, boat facilities.
