Emperor Orion

trip report emperor orion liveaboard The tail of the high season in Maldives and we were on the Emperor Orion. The trip started with a 45 minutes flight to the Laamu Atoll and from there we stepped aboard. From Laamu all the way back to Malé we reported from the boat on our experiences with the boat, crew, food and the dives.  An in depth preview of your next holiday?
