Are you having difficulty choosing which island to visit? Why not combine a short island-hopping cruise aboard Four Seasons Explorer with a stay ashore?
This modern, luxury ship was designed to take the Four Seasons resort experience to sea as a floating dive resort. It operates a series of 3, 4 and 7 day cruises around the most un-spoilt atolls of the Maldives providing a unique opportunity for its guests to explore uninhabited islands and dive on some of the best reefs in the world.
This 129-foot catamaran has three decks and is fully equipped with water makers, twin 788kw engines and the latest satellite communication systems. The ship has a crew of 24 and accommodation for 22 guests in 10 staterooms and 1 luxury Explorer Suite. Accommodation on board is luxurious and on a par with the facilities and services to be found at Four Seasons resort ashore.
There are two sundecks, a restaurant with indoor or outdoor dining options, a bar, library and a lounge. In addition to the fully equipped dive centre, there is a range of other watersports available including windsurfing, snorkeling, waterskiing and kayaking.
The ship is also available for private charter.
