The SS Thistlegorm has been on my diving bucket list for quite some time, so I’m glad that it lived up to its reputation.

Our dive guides on board the Emperor Superior were really great, and the rest of the crew was very hospitable.

I would highly recommend the Emperor Superior to others and am really looking forward to taking additional trips with them in other areas of the Red Sea.

It was a very pleasant experience overall with a relatively small diving group and a great group of staff members. The food was fabulous too.

Recommended for: Great crew, great value for money

We are a small group of experienced tech divers, and this was our first trip on the Superior, it was like home away from home, with such a relaxed atmosphere, nice food and brilliant crew who took care of our every need, and the diving exceeded our expectations. Thanks guys!
