Passports & Visas: All guests must have a passport valid for at least six more months after arrival. 30 day tourist visas are issued
on arrival at the immigration desk at Maldives International airport for all nationalities and are free of charge. All visitors must be in possession of a return/onward flight ticket.
Insurance: We do require all divers to have valid insurance from a reputable company that covers diving accidents. You will need
to bring proof of this with you to show the guides when you check in. Emperor Maldives use INDEPTHS Insurance which is available to purchase onboard. As a temporary member you will be able to gain insured member benefits.
On arrival: Guests arriving at Male Airport on the “check-in" day (usually Saturday) will be met by a representative of Emperor
Maldives who will be wearing an Emperor Maldives T-Shirt and holding an Emperor Maldives sign. The meeting point is near the Help Desk.
Transfers to and from the liveaboard: Transfer from the airport to the boat is at 13:00. If the boat is ready we will try our best
to arrange an earlier transfer for guests who land early in the morning or late in the evening up to midnight (00:00).
Transfers between midnight and 06:00 will be charged at €80 per transfer up to 4 people. Guests arriving the day before the cruise "check-in" day or earlier should book their hotel using booking.com or similar. If you have made your own arrangements for a prior stay in The Maldives then you should make your way back to the airport by 13:00 on the cruise “check-in "day. The boat departs Male early on the morning following the “check-in" day.
If your route does not start in Male and requires a domestic flight on arrival then you will be met and assisted with the check-in
formalities for your flight. Full details will be provided at the time of booking.
Check out is at 07:00 & 09:00 on the last day of the cruise. Guests will be in the airport by 07:30 & 09:30 accordingly. For guests
continuing their vacation in the Maldives at a resort, hotel or another live-aboard, your on-going transfers need to be arranged you yourself from the airport. We will not be able to arrange direct transfers from the liveaboard to resorts.
Information about Male Airport: If you do have to wait for the 13.00 transfer on arrival then the airport is reasonably
comfortable and has a shop for local SIM cards, a post office, money changer, and a few decent coffee shops / restaurants Inc. Thai
Express, Burger King and a New Noodle.
On departure you could use the airport hotel 24hr aircon coffee shop with Wi-Fi in the reception area. Day rooms can be booked for your departure day and includes lunch, transfers, Wi-Fi, discount in souvenir shop but use of the pool is extra. This day package
costs $81 per person plus tax, and pool use costs $22 per person plus tax. If you wish to book a day use hotel please inform us at
the time of booking. Payment is made locally.
Cabins: All the cabins accommodate two guests either in a double bedded cabin or twin berth cabin. Cabins are pre-sold and
allocated prior to arrival.
Bathrooms: All bathrooms are equipped with a shower, sink and toilet; some suites have a bath tub/Jacuzzi. Please take extra care
in the bathrooms not to slip and always use the shower curtain/door. Placing toilet paper down any toilet onboard is not acceptable.
This not only risks blocking the system but it also finds its way in to the delicate reef systems causing irreparable damage. Waste
paper bins are provided in all bathrooms and are emptied regularly.
Hot water: Short showers are the order of the day on liveaboards as hot water is in short supply. We ask guests to shower at
different times to ensure everyone enjoys a hot shower. The Jacuzzi’s are not electrically heated.
Air-conditioning: All Emperor Maldives liveaboards have air-conditioning throughout. Air-conditioning uses a lot of power and
energy so we ask you to please be kind to the environment and don’t leave the air conditioning on in your cabin when you are
House-keeping: You will be provided with two towels on check in, one for showering and one for use on the sundeck. Dive towels
are available on the diving dhoni. The housekeeping crew will clean your cabin daily, generally after your first or second dive of the day. Towels and bed linen will be changed every three days. For any additional cleaning required or change of towels please speak to the guides who will be able to assist you.
Food & Drink: The meals onboard are usually buffet style with a variety of dishes to suit everyone. Water, tea and coffee are
complimentary. Soft drinks, fresh juices and alcohol (cocktails, liquors, wine and beer) are chargeable. For any special dietary
requests, such as vegetarian or any allergies, please inform us prior to arrival.
Alcohol: Importing of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by law. Bottles containing alcoholic beverages will be confiscated at Customs upon arrival and returned to you at departure. Alcohol is available to purchase on board. Guests will not be permitted to dive after consuming alcohol or under the influence of a hangover as this seriously impairs your judgment and increases your risk of decompression sickness. If the guides deem that you are unfit to dive you will be asked to sit out the dive. Your safety and well
being are paramount so this request by the dive guides will only be made to avoid accidents.
Behavior: Anti-social or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated and individuals who cause a disturbance to other guests may be removed from the liveaboard.
