The Blue Horizon has flexible options in term of accommodation. Indeed, with 4 King Suites and 9 Deluxe twin which can also be double-occupancy, there’s plenty of room for up to 26 divers.

Blue Horizon On-board Facilities
The MY Blue Horizon was made nearly perfect in order to set the standards high for the next Blue O Two liveaboards. Indeed, the boat is surprising in term of communal areas and living space. All in neutral and blue tones, there is cushioned seating available on every corner of the vessel! First, the dining room and adjacent salon area are both lavish, all in space and comfort.
Furthermore, most social areas are equipped with a media streaming system, including movies and TV series. Also, there is plenty of outdoor lounging space. The sky deck lounge is all in white, offering plenty of comfortable seating space. There’s also a shaded deck area as well as a proper sun deck, again with plenty of loungers space!
Here comes the sundeck, all in style and comfort with cozy days beds. Perfect to read, sip on a cocktail if your done diving for the day or simply work on that northerner’s tan line! Moreover, just below sundeck, there is a hot tub located at the bow. Can’t you imagine… admiring a sunset while relaxing in a jacuzzi on the Red Sea?
With a length of 41 meters and a beam of nearly 9 meters, the Blue Horizon stands out a bit! Indeed, it’s bigger and has about the same number of guest than it’s sister ships, Blue Melody and Blue Fin.
You will notice the Blue Horizon among the top Best Red Sea Liveaboard – Reviews from 2016. The DIVER Magazine awarded the Blue Horizon in 2015 as being the ‘Liveaboard of the Year’.
