Single Traveller information
Emperor Liveaboards guarantees same sex cabin share on all their Liveaboards.
If they can’t place you in a cabin with with someone of the same sex then they will give you a cabin all to yourself with no single supplement charge applied.
If you are a single traveller and would like to guarantee the larger double bed in a twin share cabin, a €35 per week supplement is charged to secure the larger bed.

If you would like to guarantee a single cabin for yourself then a single supplement charge of 50% of the price of the other place in the cabin would be applied.
For example if the trip is €2000 per person based on 2 persons sharing a cabin, to secure the cabin to yourself you would need to pay the regular €2000 + (€2000 x 50% = €1,000) = €3,000 total for your own single cabin.
If you are happy to share with another same sex diver then the price would be just the regular retail rate of €2000 per person.

If you book any trip at least 9 months in advance you can also take advantage of a 20 Euro on-board voucher and a chance for a FREE upgrade on selected departures (subject to availability on your arrival).
