MY Dreams may not be the grandest Red Sea liveaboard, but it focusses on personalised service in an area of the market which is very competitive. Without breaking the bank you can enjoy a diving tour around Egypt's best sites of the Sinai Peninsula with a maximum of only 18 guests on board, and typically between 10 and 16.
The air conditioned lounge features TV, DVD and music system plus a library including general interest as well as fish ID books. The top deck (and sun deck to the bow) has soft seating and mattresses making a comfortable chill out or sun bathe area.
Cabins are compact and simple and either twin bunk or twin. All of them have ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning and towels and bathrobes. So if you are yearning for a quality Sinai Peninsula liveaboard experience without the cost, then this boat might be the stuff that dreams are made of.
