More and more people are choosing cruising for a holiday – in fact more than six percent of Australians choose a cruise for their annual leave. The adage ‘unpack once and wake up in a different location each day’ has definite appeal. But rather than take a large ship with literally thousands of other passengers queuing for the buffet, we think smaller ships are the way to go – and the best we’ve found is a Captain Cook Cruises seven-night Fiji cruise.
The 130-passenger, fully accommodated MV Reef Endeavour cruise ship will take you to places larger cruise ships have no chance of seeing.
Seven-night cruises include the Yasawa and Mamanuca Islands cruise, the 4 Cultures Discovery Cruise and the Colonial Fiji Discovery Cruise.
The Yasawa and Mamanuca islands cruise (which can be combined as a seven night voyage or sailed separately) visits Tivua Island, Monu Island, Naviti Island, Brother Island, Drawaqa, Sacred Island and Mononki – the island where Tom Hanks’ movie Castaway was filmed – for snorkelling, diving, paddle boarding, escorted glass bottom boating and kayak tours.
Explore limestone caves at Sawa-l-Lau and visit the islands of Yasawa and Waya for a guided walk through the villages and local schools.
Hike to the top of the mountains for amazing views at Mt. Tamasua on Yasawa and at Monu experience a special village choral service. At the Fijian village of Gunu, be part of a traditional Fijian feast, lovo and cultural performance, Meke.
The 4 Cultures Discovery Cruise is the first ever Fiji cruise to circumnavigate Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island, to discover four distinctive Fijian cultures, Ellice Islanders (Polynesians), Banabans (Micronesia), Fijian and Indian.
Be taken on a cultural journey through an amazing show of song and dance by the Polynesians (Ellice Islanders) of Kioa Island and discover the home and history of the Banabans people on Rabi Island.
Spend the morning at Labasa Town, home to a vast number of Fijian Indians. Visit a Hindu snake temple and see the growing rock, before shopping along the main street and at the produce market. Then be entertained by a Bollywood style dance troupe.
On the seven night Colonial Fiji Discovery Cruise visit the world heritage listed Levuka on the island of Ovalau, featuring 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades from times of colonial rule.
At Makogai Island experience a traditional Fijian ceremony and a walking tour of Makogai leper colony and nursery, home to giant clams and turtles.
Visit Bouma Waterfall National Park. View or hike its series of natural waterfalls and swim in the Tavoro Waterfall Lagoon.
Join the special choral church service at Wairiki before the ultimate experience – standing on the famous 180th meridian, the arbitrary dateline between today and tomorrow on Taveuni Island.
All cruises include daily guided snorkelling and escorted glass bottom boating tours. The ship is equipped with a hydraulic platform ensuring boarding and disembarking the glass bottom boating is easy.
Divers can experience the underwater world with scuba diving operated by Viti Water Sports, a PADI 5-Star Dive Centre.
