A luxurious 128-feet catamaran, the Four Seasons Explorer offers a range of cruises around the beautiful Maldives. Ideal for nature-lovers who like diving and snorkeling among exotic atolls, these lavish cruises also cater for those who simply want to relax in unparalleled surroundings.
Choose your cruise
The three-night Aquariums and Caves cruise takes you to the Baa and Malé atolls, with fish-filled caves, coves and canyons to explore. The four-night Sharks and Shipwrecks cruise visits Baa and Malé and Ari atolls, where passengers can dive and snorkel among shipwrecks and friendly sharks. For a seven-night trip, the See It All cruise travels both northwards and southwards in an exhilarating tour of four major atolls.
Food at its finest
A cruise aboard the Four Seasons Explorer is a luxury experience, and this includes the food. The breakfast buffet offers a wide range of delicious dishes. Lunch and dinner menus change daily, with a range of fresh food influenced by Maldives, India, Asian, European and American flavours. Cruises also feature beach barbecues on uninhabited islands, and if you manage to catch a fish during your stay, the chef will cook it for you.
A stay at sea
Passengers can choose from 10 air-conditioned State Rooms or the Explorer Suite, all of which offer stylish and comfortable accommodation and a range of amenities, including flat-screen TVs and private bars
Stay entertained and invigorated
There is a PADI 5-star Dive Centre on board, which runs a daily schedule of at least two dives to secluded spots where you can see sharks, wrecks and mantas. Those with a little less diving experience can explore the marine life with a snorkel, or enjoy watersports such as kayaking and waterskiing.
For something more relaxing, a variety of spa treatments are available from the on-board massage therapist.
If you want to explore the stunning islands and beaches of the Maldives in luxury, a cruise on the Four Seasons Explorer is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
