At a glance

With over 300 islands to explore, Fiji is the perfect place for a luxury cruise. On this eight-day trip you’ll get to discover its hidden beaches, secret coves and fascinating culture with three nights on Tokoriki Island and five nights aboard the beautiful Fiji Princess.

The trip feels like an adventure from the moment you start with a seaplane transfer from Nadi to Tokoriki Island. This is part of the Mamanuca group of Fijian islands and the perfect place to relax and unwind for a few days. Swim and snorkel through the crystal-clear waters of the South Pacific, enjoy a guided nature walk or get an insight into traditional culture with a visit to a local village. How you choose to spend your time is entirely up to you.

Once you’ve settled into Fijian time, you’ll take a private speedboat to board the Fiji Princess for a five-night cruise through the Sacred and Yasawa Islands. There is so much to discover which is why sailing time is limited to four hours a day. This means there is plenty of time to swim, snorkel, dive or relax on the white powedery sands of Fiji’s beautiful beaches. There are also clear kayaks, glass-bottomed boats and stand up paddleboards for you to use.

You’ll anchor at four different locations and with all your meals included, there is very little to worry about besides which pastry to pick at afternoon tea.

Yalobi Bay

Check into the Fiji Princess cruise ship and meet your crew and fellow passengers before enjoying a delicious lunch on board. The Sacred Islands provide a breathtaking backdrop and the rest of your day is spent here enjoying these idyllic tropical islands. It’s up to you how you spend your time in this stunning setting. Enjoy a swim, wander the beaches, kayak in the lagoon and just enjoy the feeling of being in this beautiful part of the world.

In the afternoon, master the art of Fiji high tea and learn how to make roti in a lolo - an earth oven - and enjoy the fruits of your labour with lemon tea. Back on board enjoy cocktails, cold beer and wine on the upper deck before a captain's dinner to properly welcome you. The a la carte menu is served in the dining saloon and entertainment is provided by a talented singing, dancing and guitar playing crew. Anchor in Yalobi Bay.

Days 5-6

Nanuya Lailai

fiji-princess-snorkelling

Laze on the sun deck as you cruise past several of the larger Yasawa Islands and beautiful bays en route to the famed Blue Lagoon. This superb stretch of water is encircled by islands, creating a lagoon that is filled with fascinating coral reefs easily seen from the surface of the crystal clear waters. One of the islands, Nanuya Lailai, is home to Blue Lagoon Cruises very own private beach. The crew will bring the vessel right up to the beach and tie her off to a coconut tree. Lunch is served on board, whilst on shore the private Fiji-style beach club awaits, with sun loungers, bar, beach volleyball and massages on offer. You’ll have plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling, fish feeding, viewing coral from the glass-bottom boat or just wandering along to a secluded stretch of beach. There will also be a coconut demonstration where you'll see how to climb a palm, get the coconut and husk it, and then enjoy fresh coconut milk.

Diving for both novices and experienced divers can be pre-booked for this location. There are many awesome dive sites within easy reach and there is also a number of guided ‘reef safari’ snorkelling tours to show you the best spots around the island.

Happy hour is served on the beach bar along with canapes, and tonight you'll get to enjoy a traditional lovo meal, where the food is cooked underground in a specially prepared pit. Watch the unearthing of the lovo and be tantalised by the smells before enjoying dinner under the coconut palms and the stars. Following dinner is a fantastic meke performance with singing, dancing and storytelling by a group of local villagers. Anchor at Nanuya Lailai.

Days 6-7

Tamusua Bay

fiji-sunset-palm-trees

Enjoy an early morning swim in the azure waters, head ashore to the beach or paddle a kayak in the surrounding tranquil waters before sitting down to an a la carte breakfast of fresh tropical fruits, yogurts, cereals, fruit juices, tea and coffee.

Most of the day is spent at leisure at the private beach. An easy guided walk along the beach and up over the hill to the other side of the island is offered, where you'll be rewarded with spectacular views out across the Blue Lagoon. You'll see village gardens, local island residences and arrive at Lo's Tea Shop on the beach where you can enjoy Lo's famous cakes and browse the shell market. A water taxi whisks you back to the vessel.

Other activities offered include basket weaving, woodcarving, diving (additional cost), and guided 'reef safari' snorkelling trips. A delicious buffet lunch is served in the dining bure on shore before the Fiji Princess heads north to the mystical island of Sawa-I-Lau. Afternoon tea is served on board as you cruise.

On arrival, you'll set off on a private guided visit to the Sawa-I-Lau caves. Steps rise from the shore up to the first cave, and you can view the majestic cavern from the stairs or take to the water. A short swim through an underwater passage takes you into the second of these stunning limestone caves.

This evening includes a visit to the village of Tamusua. A yaqona ceremony, a guided walk around the village and a Fiji village-style feast prepared and cooked by the village women awaits you. This is not a feast tailored for visitors but one exactly as the village would hold themselves for special occasions. You will enjoy Fijian food and share stories with the villagers about their culture and their home.

Return to Fiji Princess for a movie night. Pull up a chair or a sun lounger on the upper theatre deck, get a cold drink in hand and enjoy the one movie that just has to be shown on a Blue Lagoon Cruise - the classic 'Blue Lagoon' starring Brooke Shields. Anchor at Tamusua Bay.

Days 7-8

Drawaqa Island

Today you will head out of the bay towards Drawaqa Island. On arrival, a marine biologist will tell you all about the local fish, marine life and the conservation work the Vinaka Fiji Volunteer team are doing in this area. If you are lucky enough to be here during May to October, then an introduction to the magnificent manta rays, whose feeding ground is just nearby, will be included. Conditions permitting you will have the opportunity to snorkel with these wonderful creatures in small escorted groups. From October to April a guided 'reef safari' snorkelling tour takes you to see the prolific corals, clams and marine life in this area. This is also a superb dive area.

If getting wet is not really your thing, then two other great activities are on offer. Visit a local village school where Vinaka Fiji volunteers are at work. Or, for a truly exhilarating experience, have a go at abseilinh from the island cliff top to the stunning waters below.

Dinner this evening is a barbecue served on the upper deck under the stars! A special feast and party night is the perfect way to celebrate your time in the Yasawas. Anchor Drawaqa Island.

It is an early start on this final morning as you set sail and return to Denarau Marina. All guests will be farewelled with the traditional Isa Lei song from the crew, as your exploration of the beautiful Yasawa Islands comes to an end.
