MY Discovery Adventure is a large, 47m long Philippines liveaboard with a steel hull. Cruises focus on 2 of the nation's main destinations: Tubbataha and the Visayas (Cebu, Bohol, Dumaguete). If you're short of time or on a tiht bidget, then the 4-night mini-cruises from Cebu will be particulary attractive

You can enjoy plenty of spaces across 4 decks (lower, upper, main and sun decks) even when the maximum of 30 guests are on board, which is not often the case. Most of the 13 air conditioned ensuite cabins are on the lower and upper deck. On the main deck there are 2 VIP cabins near to the large saloon/dining area. Here you can find a relaxing lounge area with comfortable couches and bean bags. The lounge also has a series of tables and chairs where meals can be enjoyed indoors and you can enjoy the ever-changing views through the large picture windows. You can relax here listening to music, enjoying the video entertainment or reading a book or magazine from the library.

Outdoor dining also regularly takes place on the partially-shaded sun deck where you can enjoy evening breezes and a sundowner cocktail as another glorious day comes to a close.

Dive sites are accessed by rigid inflatable tenders after you gear up on the dive deck and step down into the dive boat. Photographers will appreciate that nitrox is available and that the lounge has many charging points and space for your photographic equipment. Active guests might like to make use of the onboard kayak to pass the time between dives.
