We were upgraded to the Elite (that is a boat!).  It has excellent
facilities and staff who were helpful and ever vigilant but not 'in your
face'.  The dives were well planned and one had to be cancelled due to rare
bad weather (in the Red Sea!!!!!!).  Cabins, food and service both wet and
dry side were impecable, especialy Achmed the dive guide - thanks Achmed. 
We did the 'Deep South' trip and the diving was good, but I have done
'Simply the Best' previously and I think that took first place.  Saw Grey
reef and Hammerhead sharks.  The night dives were excellent.  Lion Fish
follow the lights from diver's torches in shoals - amazing.  Would
certainly go with an Emperor tour again.  Nothing much that I would have
liked to know before I set off.  The pre-trip communication was excellent.
