Atoll Explorer Revitalizes Its Food and Beverage Offerings
Maldives Promotion House – Atoll Explorer has completed a full review of its food and beverage offerings, including a kitchen, Restaurant and Bar refurbishment to allow for a far superior product. The Restaurant refurbishment program included new furniture, a new buffet layout, an underwater seascape mural, a new Bose sound system, Nespresso machine and a new restaurant bar area.
The Restaurant now sits on an open concept, which offers panoramic vistas and different spectacular views of the Maldives on a daily basis. The menu has a balance of Asian inspired dishes and classic favourites to appeal to a range of palates. The day time picnic and beach barbeque under the stars are two very unique dining experiences not to be missed. The beach dinner includes a Maldivian fish barbeque along with all the trimmings, ending the night with dancing and star gazing.
The Bar refurbishment was about providing more space in a more contemporary setting using the signature colours of blue, white and polish woods. The setup now gives you more of a cocktail lounge feel to it, but with a casual ambience. The cocktail list is themed around the warm sunny days of the Maldives, with a variety of classic and themed Bellinis, grown onboard mint Mojitos, house infused martinis and a array of long drinks and classic cocktails. The wine list offers a range of white, red and sparkling wines with a focus on refreshing and light wines to suite the climate.
On Itinerary 1, a new feature day has been added where Atoll Explorer anchors at Koajaadi Finolhu. Koajaadi Finolhu is an uninhabited and isolated sand cay in North Malé Atoll. On the sand cay, which changes in dimensions, is a beautiful lagoon for swimming and a vibrant reef for our snorkelers. For the divers, there are numerous amazing dive sites within reach including a manta ray cleaning station in the summer season. Tents and umbrellas will be provided for shade and offer beverage services throughout the day. At sunset, there will be barefoot welcome cocktails with all guests and the crew on the sand cay and you can witness an unforgettable sunset with your feet in the sand.
Atoll Explorer is one of the best value cruise experiences in the Maldives offering all-inclusive packages which includes all meals, selected beverages, local island trips, deserted island excursions, beach dinners, entertainment, snorkelling and much more. Atoll Explorer is especially designed for Maldives live aboard diving cruises, and was the first ship to offer first class cruising in the Maldives.
The atmosphere on board is that of an exclusive, well-run, floating family hotel. Expect no pretension – only dedication – to seeing that guests are comfortable and enjoying themselves. The ship’s ambience is “laid back”; there is no dressing up for dinners, or entertainment. Dress code is shorts and swimwear during the day and casual dress in the evening, both on board and in the Maldives islands.
With a maximum of 40 passengers, guests soon get to know each other and every week-long live aboard Maldives cruise becomes a jolly party with friends. With its scuba diving activities and different dive sites and visits to luxury Maldivian resorts, village and uninhabited islands, Atoll Explorer provides a unique and fun-filled way of getting to know the best that Maldives has to offer living aboard.
