MV Princess Handy Maldives was built in 2008 and renovated to the latest standards in 2014. The ship is part of the Macana fleet, owned and operated by an experienced Italian team.
The 36 by 10-meter large vessel carries 22 guests in style and comfort to all the magnificent dive spots in the region. Our family-oriented liveaboard welcomes children of all ages, including toddlers. We have a babysitting service on board.
The duration of the scheduled cruises varies from 8 to 10 days. Shorter charters are possible. We specialize in romantic wedding cruises, including gazebo ceremonies in dreamlike locations.
Princess Handy welcomes her passengers in 10 large designer staterooms and one royal ocean view suite.
5 upper deck large doubles, 4 lower deck triples, and 2 lower deck doubles all with private bathrooms, air conditioning, hot and cold water shower, and ample storage space.
The colorful, decorated, and homely furnished lounge has all the facilities for relaxation and amusement. Internet is available, and a multimedia entertainment system plays your favorite movies, shows your latest underwater footage, or transforms you into the karaoke star of the day.
Outdoors you can choose between 3 shaded and sunny leisure decks. Enjoy the hydro-massage bath or a revitalizing treatment at the onboard spa.
Princess Handy serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner as tasteful buffets with local and Italian plates. We will always consider the younger guest by presenting healthy and attractive dishes for all palates on our menus. Pizzas and pasta are still very popular.
Our bar sells a selection of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. In case you have special alimentary requests, please inform us at the time of your booking.
Water temperatures range from 27 to 29°c all year round. The tropical Maldives is host to an underwater paradise brimming with marine wildlife.
