Cruise Fiji: Discover Paradise At Leisure

If you choose to cruise Fiji, then it helps to know a little about this ethereal country. Fiji is situated in the South West Pacific and has 330 islands to choose from. This lovely country has a highly developed tourist structure considering it attracts more than 400,000 tourists every year. Fiji has a landmass of 7,100 square feet and English and Fijian are the languages spoken. Viti Levu is the heart of Fiji and the capital city Suva is located here where half the population lives. If you decide to cruise Fiji, May to December is cooler and less humid with the temperature averaging about 26 deg C. The period between December to April witnesses rainfall with the temperature averaging about 30deg C. You can also cruise Fiji without the fear of tropical diseases.

Cruise Fiji Packages Offer A Great Holiday Option

There are many cruises Fiji packages to choose from and rates vary depending on Peak or Low season and what is included in the package itself. Captain Cook Cruises offer several cruise Fiji packages. 3nights cruise+3 nights on Sanaisali Island Resort would cost you about 1399USD per person. It is a well-planned holiday with a little bit of all that Fiji has to offer.

Another option is the Northern Fiji Islands 7-night cruise, which costs about 1867USD per person. This “Reef Escape” cruises through Denarau, Nadi, floats past Yasawa Islands to the North coast of Viti Levu and across the International dateline.

Cruise Fiji Because Blue Lagoon Really Exists

Blue Lagoon Cruises have some amazing cruise Fiji holidays to offer. Named after the original Hollywood movie, Blue Lagoon Cruises owns the island Nanuya Lai Lai (Blue Lagoon). One of the cruise Fiji packages it offers lasts 4days and 3nights. Day 1: The Mystique Princess sets sail for Yasawa Island late afternoon even as a tourist is served tea at the dining saloon. It’s all a little surreal, a romantic sunset, complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres on the Sun Deck. Later the Captain hosts a Bula (welcome dinner) followed by the crew singing island songs.

Day2: Wake up to a sunset at Yasawa Islands, which will take your breath away with its pristine white beaches and the gentle breeze of the palm trees. A cold buffet breakfast later it is time to drop anchor in lagoon that’s is tucked away in a little bit of heaven. Life is difficult (!!) and all you are required to do is snorkel, swim and sun bathe till it’s time for a scrumptious barbecue lunch on the beach, with the warm residents of the island playing hosts…

Day3: If you chose to cruise Fiji to find out if the Blue Lagoon was for real then this is the day. The Nanuya Lai Lai cannot be described; its beauty can only be experienced. If you can take time out from absorbing the beauty of the place, you can go snorkeling, bushwalking, sail boarding, paddle boarding, fishing, sun bathing, and even indulge in an energetic game of volleyball. You can witness a tradition meal being cooked in an earthen oven called lovo. Of course you get to eat it too. You can lull yourself to sleep to the faint strains of music on board…

Day4: And The Cruise Fiji Finale All good things have to come to an end and the last day that you cruise Fiji on the Mystique Princess is relaxed and a time to come back to reality. The crew will bid you a gentle farewell with “Isa Lei” at noon when the cruise ends at Lautoka wharf...
