MV Empress is a unique budget liveaboard option in Indonesia

 This is a 'down to earth' option, built for exploration, Wreck and Technical Diving and, unusually, it organizes diving trips, among others, to Flores and Komodo, Raja Ampat and the Java Sea. You can join one of the itineraries, very different than other liveaboards in the area. 

What you can expect

The Empress, a unique steel vessel, sails the waters of Indonesia. The ship offers recreational trips for all types of diving. The 24 metre dive vessel has been taken over by the Scuba Froggy Fleet, well known for its excellent service, and it uphold reputation.

On a regular individually booked trip, the vessel will welcome up to 9 guests on-board while on a chartered trip, it will allow up to 13 guests. There are 5 Cabins all with air condition, all located on the Lower Deck and each features either a double bed, two twin beds or a combination of both. Needless to say, this dive boat allows lots of flexibility in term of accommodation. Most of the cabins have shared bathrooms. Indeed, only cabin “D”, has an en-suite bathroom. The cabins also include fans, plenty of cabinets storage, reading lamps, pillows and bedding as well as 2 towels per Diver.

The Empress offers an appreciable amount of space where guests can lounge between dives and in the evening. The Main Deck is home to a large Dining Room, the Kitchen and also the new Shisha Loungea cozy shadowed area with mattresses, chess, fans, ect. where the guests can spend their chill-out time and watch movies (TV screen + video available).

There are two Sundecks, both are quite big and comfortable. Indeed, the very top one features mats and bean bags with an open-sky area, while the Upper Deck’s lounge is covered.

The steel hulled vessel is fully equipped for technical diving and features a great layout in term of accommodation. Since the Scuba Froggy Fleet’s took it over in 2016, the interior’s finish are all in teak and ironwoods and the furnitures, inside and out, are all new.
