- Lower, upper & main deck twin or double cabin options
- Welcoming, airy saloon and restaurant style dining area
- Outstanding on board cuisine with international dishes
- Fully stocked international bar
Virgo sleeps only 18 divers over 32m, which has made her popular with those that prefer smaller groups on board. All diving is from the support dhoni. Cruise the heavenly atolls of Male and Ari without it costing the earth on a liveaboard dedicated to your diving satisfaction.
Virgo has a total of 9 cabins on board for 18 divers - there are 5 lower deck twin cabins, 2 main deck twin/double cabins and 2 sea view upper deck cabins. All have en suite bathrooms with shampoo and shower gel. The upper deck cabins have large windows to let all that Maldivian sunshine in.
The light wood decor continues throughout the vessel. On the main deck there is a large air conditioned saloon with welcoming sofas. Meals are served buffet style and seated at a large table. This is a fun, social boat to be on! The bar on board is fully licensed so you can enjoy your favourite tipple as the sun sinks over the horizon. The upper deck is a hub for most people in between dives, with loungers to relax on and enjoy the Maldives drifting by. Wifi access can be purchased on board and is limited by signal coverage in each area. As of 1st September 2016, Virgo will operate as Emperor Virgo

We've not long been back from the Maldives on M/Y Virgo. The dive guides, Roland, Mark and Ibu (sorry if I've misspelt) were incredible and really looked after us. We had an amazing week seeing so much sea life plus turtles (a dream come true for one of our group!) & then we had whalesharks and mantas! Although the weather wasn't great (monsoon rains) we still had an amazing week away and even had all our dive gear washed by the crew and dried in the lovely weather we had on the last couple of days. Thank you scuba travel team for yet another brilliant holiday. Elaine Ann
