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.

Here’s a review by a customer who rated the Maldives Blue Voyager liveaboard 10 out of 10 and 5 stars:
Super comfortable and spacious boat and service made for a perfect trip! “The boat was of a high quality – modern, clean, large and comfortable. Although the boat was full, we always could find space somewhere to relax. Crew were really attentive, with literally help for everything. The diving was both mind-blowing and average in turns, depending on the conditions, but the dive guides had a good balance of showing things and letting people explore with their buddy. I would consider diving with Blue O Two again. Thanks of course to Albert and Sophie, who made the trip relaxed and fun!” Recommended for: Large boat and dive Dhongi; Food was really tasty and diverse; Rental gear was excellent.David S, Australia
