Atoll Explorer has been especially designed for live aboard cruises since 1996, when she became the first ship to offer first class cruising in the Maldives.

The atmosphere on board is that of an exclusive, well-run, floating family hotel. Expect no pretension - only dedication - to seeing that guests are comfortable and enjoying themselves. The ship's ambience is "laid back"; there is no dressing up for dinners, or entertainment. Dress code is shorts and swimwear during the day and casual dress in the evening, both on board and in the Maldives islands.

With a maximum of 40 passengers, guests soon get to know each other and every week-long live aboard cruise becomes a jolly party with friends. With its scuba diving activities and different dive sites and visits to luxury Maldivian resorts, village and uninhabited islands, Atoll Explorer provides a unique and fun-filled way of getting to know the best that Maldives has to offer living aboard.


Dinning & Accommodation:

Dining throughout the Maldives live aboard cruise mirrors the relaxed and laid back atmosphere on board. A high standard is maintained throughout. The vessel comes complete with a restaurant serving buffet-style meals and a bar with a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Served to you either on deck under an awning during the day in the ships main dining area or on a deserted island under the stars, Patrick, the Head Chef ensures each meal will bring you 100% satisfaction for a memorable Maldives dining cruise. Expect to be amazed as you enjoy the variety of a daytime island picnic, a fresh fish BBQ dinner or the Captain's hosted dinner on your final night.

Atoll Explorer comes equipped with 20 cabins, simply furnished with either a double bed or two single beds with attached bathrooms. All cabins have a window facing out to sea while some come with a small balcony. They are all equipped with air-conditioning, telephone, bathroom, shower area and wardrobe space.


Diving :

Atoll Explorer has a fully equipped and professionally run diving base on board the ship. Operated by Asseyri Divers and exacting the high standards of PADI, the Dive Team welcomes both beginners and experienced divers. Next to a full range of PADI beginners programs and courses and continuing education, Atoll Explorer offers diving with Nitrox for certified enriched air Divers and it is free. The diving is adventurous and varies as the ship cruises through the atolls, giving you the opportunity to experience the fantastic dive areas in the Maldives.
