Emperor Serenity

Emp Serenity Ext1 b opt

Emperor Serenity launched in 2016. At 40-meters (131-foot), she accommodates 26 guests in 13 cabins. Serenity focuses on Best of Maldives cruises and Hanifaru & the Northern atolls.

A word from Dom:  "Leisure space galore.  In spite of accommodating 26 guests, Serenity ensures quiet spaces for everyone.  She offers a holiday ambience and focuses largely on the central atolls where you'll get an overview of what makes the Maldives an idyllic archipelago."   ... Dominick Macan
