Examples it cites include Ari Queen, with prices from £1025pp, and Emperor Voyager from £1044pp.

For seasoned Maldives divers it recommends the Amba, one of the first liveaboards to operate around Haa Alifu, the most northerly atoll (from £1160pp); or Sheena, visiting the deep south including Meemu, Vaavu and Laamu atolls (from £723pp). All prices are boat-only, not travel.

Funnily enough, Regaldive says it has also noticed another surge – in demand for its Red Sea programme for next winter, with  “a wider range of airports than ever before” offering flights to Egypt.
