The boat's owner, Alex Bryant as well as the liveaboard Emperor Fleet are well-regarded in the liveaboard diving world and stand for highest quality and service standards both in their boats and in their professional crews.

The large air conditioned Saloon is welcoming and has comfy sofas. Between dives, snorkeling is always available, some of the entertainment includes movies, catching up on social media when Wi-Fi is available.

The stylish Restaurant dining area offers superb culinary delights served buffet style. Staff aboard the liveaboard Emperor Virgo understand that food plays a crucial part in the satisfaction and enjoyment of your dive vacation.
