It would be nice if the Adora had more extra activities & luxury amenities like ScubaSpa Yang and Emperor Explorer but it probably does offer the nicest and most spacious cabins of any Maldives liveaboard.

She is also a great option for those who want to stay in the nicest, most lavish cabin possible whilst exploring the popular central and more off the beaten track southern regions.
“Lovely staff the visibility and weather not ideal – Would probably advise people not to chose October if this is the typical weather. visibility about 5-8 m only We saw everything though – whale shark, mantas However, We had tuna served twice a day every day.
My partner does not eat tuna and therefore chicken was his staple food. Perhaps more variation might have been possible if 19 of the 24 on board were not Israeli – but probably better to have varied more for the unlucky five !
Otherwise we thought it was an excellent cruise and could not fault the staff at all, they were absolutely wonderful – particularly Dhoni crew, divemaster, Hassan, and Barman, Lucky. thank you everyone”.
