Enhanced Health Measures

Date of last update:Sep 8, 2020

This information is automatically shown here when we receive it. Please excuse any formatting issues.

Depending on the total number of guests you might be split into 2 groups for meal timings and dive briefings. Meals will still be prepared in buffet style, but will be served by the chef and other crew members if required. We further request each and every one on board to keep a safe distance of at least 1 meter whenever possible. Crew will be wearing masks when in contact with clients in enclosed spaces. The new guidelines state that “for our crew member to enter your cabin they should wear masks, disposable or reusable apron over their work clothes, gloves and closed shoes. Gloves and apron should be changed every time before entering a different cabin”. As such to reduce the risk for clients and crew and the amount of PPE required to abide by the stated above, cabins will be cleaned and linen changed only once during your trip. Change of towels can be requested at any time. If you do not wish to have anyone enter your cabin during the trip, please advice your captain upon check in. Hand sanitizing stations will be provided in all public areas but not in the cabins. All relevant changes to dive procedures and cleaning of equipment will be explained thoroughly by the dive team leader in a separate briefing.

Description

great food, even better company and world-class diving adventures in the Maldives with MV Carpe Vita

This beautiful liveaboard offers a select group of divers an exceptional yachting experience, with large, hotel-style staterooms and an open-air Jacuzzi - the perfect setting to watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean. 

To ensure that every diving safari becomes an incredibly memorable experience, every aspect of MV Carpe Vita's design, itinerary and menu have received detailed attention. The diving, the leisure activities, and comfort found aboard the MV Carpe Vita easily compare to those of any hotel on land.

What you can expect

The M/V Carpe Vita, is 20-passenger, 125-foot wooden-hull safari yacht, along with her 60-foot custom matching dhoni (dive tender), was built by one of the Maldives most accomplished boat builders. It differentiates itself from other liveaboards by providing the best in personalized accommodation.

The MV Carpe Vita has 3 types of cabins. VIP Suites on the Upper Deck, and 2 types of Stateroom on the Main and Lower Decks. The boat is equipped with air-conditioning. For entertainment and activities as well as great diving, the MV Carpe Vita offers karaoke, movies, and audio-video entertainment.

Part of its philosophy is also that even when sailing the hidden corners of the Maldives, good food must not be forgotten

On the MV Carpe Vita evening meals and lunches usually consist of vegetables, rice, pasta, soup, chicken, beef or fish with occasional local specialties offered as additional options. Breakfast is the usual fare of eggs, beef bacon, pancakes, French toast, potatoes, cereal and fruits. If you have any dietary restrictions or requests, please indicate them on your application form.

Please note that specific brands of drinks, dressings and foods are often unavailable in the Maldives and that it can be very difficult for us to find low-fat, gluten-free or soy products, fresh fruit, shellfish and other items common elsewhere. Pork and pork products are not served aboard.

While we will do our best to accommodate your requests, please be realistic and consider bringing some of your own foods if the lack there of may constitute a health risk.

Due to the difficulty of importing alcohol into the Maldives, additional beer or wine or freshly made juices or any hard liquor will be added to your onboard bill.
