Here’s a review by a customer who rated the Maldives Emperor Virgo liveaboard 10 out of 10 and 5 stars:

Amazing trip! “We were lucky enough to see 17 Eagle rays swimming in formation, lots of sharks, turtles and rays as well as beatiful corals and so much fish life. The night dive with the Mantas was thrilling – as was the twilight dive with the nurse sharks. We couldn’t fault the crew and Dive Guides. The briefings were really good and health and safety was always a priority. It was our first liveaboard and we couldn’t have asked for more. The accommodation was excellent and the fantastic cocktails an added bonus. Thanks to Thomas and all the crew for making the week so special!!Recommended for: The crew, the diving, the food.
