Blue Lagoon: Escape to Paradise Cruise

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,283

Come aboard and be captivated by one of the most enchanting groups of islands in the South Pacific. This 8-day long cruising escape will leave you not only replenished but with enduring memories of this beautiful corner of the earth.


The ultimate Fiji experience on the water, this week-long escape gives you the opportunity to explore spectacular coral reefs, and get up close and personal with the colourful cultures of this idyllic paradise.

Explore the coral cays of Naviti Island. Enjoy a basket weaving demonstration, then explore to your heart’s content with swimming, bushwalking, snorkeling, or miles of unspoiled beach at your fingertips. A visit to a traditional Fijian village will make you feel like an honoured guest as you take part in the ‘Yagona’ welcome ceremony and watch traditional dances.

On private Nanuya Lai Lai, you’ll have the opportunity to windsurf, get an up close view of the coral, feed tropical fish by hand or play a little volleyball. A highlight on this day will be a traditional ‘magiti’ lunch feast, cooked in a ‘lovo’ earth oven. You’ll also visit rarely touristed Yasawa-I-Rara Island, one of the most beautiful places in Fiji and home to unparalleled snorkeling amid pristine coral reef gardens. With each night spent anchored in a sheltered lagoon, this is leisurely South Pacific cruising at its best.

    The small size of Blue Lagoon Cruises boutique cruise ship, Fiji Princess is just one of the things that makes a cruise in it so special. Accommodating up to 68 passengers and measuring only 179 feet (55 metres) in length, it can access bays and islands that would be impossible to reach in a large ship. We can get so close to shore, that we can tie off to a coconut tree and you can swim to the beach!
