MY Emperor Asmaa dive boat review

The 30 meters Emperor Asmaa is another great liveaboard from the Emperor Fleet, delivering dive cruises on the Red Sea. Custom built in 2003, the vessel had a full refit in 2015 and is now even more adapted for divers.

 

Boat Cabins & Layout

The cabins on the Emperor Asmaa are spacious, air-conditioned and all comes with an en-suite bathroom. Indeed, the 10 cabins are all qualified of “deluxe”, with mini bar and 2 towels provided for each guest. Up to 20 divers are welcome on board each dive cruise around the Red Sea.

All cabins have twin beds and 6 are located on the lower deck while 4 are on the upper deck.

Vessel Layout

The Emperor Asmaa stands out from her sistership of the Red Sea as she is the smallest. Indeed, with a length of 30 meters, she welcomes a reasonable number of 20 guests. Now, both the Emperor Superior and Emperor Elite are bigger in size, 37 and 38 meters and host more guests, accordingly. The Asmaa is offering the same great service which upholds the reputation of the Emperor fleet.

One Liveaboard feedback for “MY Emperor Asmaa

  1. Great boat! The Staff super friendly – but one dive staff was not always with us while diving… so bad ratio divers/guides … anyways! We saw so many sharkies I couldn’t believe it ! I loved the Red Sea, it was my first time but certainly not my last!

    P.s thanks Divezone for the great information!
