Cruise and See More on a Fiji Vacation
Sailing the turquoise waters of the Fijian archipelago, Captain Cook Cruises invites Globetrotters to explore unspoiled islands in style and comfort on a Fiji vacation.
Consistently one of the South Pacific’s most popular destinations, Fiji is famous for its welcoming locals, a complex blend of island and Indian culture, as well as warm, clear waters and coral reefs ideal for diving and swimming. Captain Cook Cruises are designed to help travellers discover Fiji’s treasures, all from the comfort of their “floating resort,” the MV Reef Endeavour.
Captain Cook Cruises offers a range of cruise itineraries to enjoy on your Fiji vacation, from quick day trips aboard smaller ships to its private coral atoll, Tivua, to complex multi-day voyages that showcase the very best of the Fijian islands. These itineraries are undertaken aboard the Reef Endeavour, a miniature cruise ship that allows passengers to explore the Fijian islands in detail, without the large crowds carried by larger vessels.
Besides the two larger islands, Fiji is made up of a number of smaller archipelagos including the Mamanucas, a series of beautiful, well-developed islands popular with honeymooners, and the more remote Yasawas, popular with those seeking a more active or adventurous Fiji vacation. The advantage of a small cruise itinerary – Captain Cook Cruises offers itineraries aboard the Reef Endeavour ranging from three to eleven days – is that it allows passengers to discover a new island each day, seeing far more of Fiji than a simple resort vacation would show them. This variety also lets Globetrotters choose exactly what kind of vacation they’d like to have.
Our 8-Day Captain Cook: Fijian Four Cultures Discovery Cruise, for example, is geared toward culture seekers wanting to explore a big part of what makes Fiji stand out from other South Pacific nations – its people. Over seven nights circumnavigating Vanua Levu, passengers encounter the Ellice Islanders, the Barnabas, Indian, and native Fijian people. The itinerary is rich in natural attractions too, including The Great Sea Reef. Those who really want to focus on Fiji’s natural wonders, however, might prefer a cruise through the Yasawa Islands, which takes in the famous Sawa-i-lau “Blue Lagoon.”
Ready to go way off the tourist trail? Our 8-Day Captain Cook: Northern Fiji Colonial Club sails to the remote islands of Fiji’s north and east. Few tourists make their way to this part of the country, which feels a world away from the expansive resorts of Denarau Island, Fiji’s main port, from which most cruise ships depart. No matter which itinerary passengers choose on their Fiji vacation, they’re sure to see the unique highlights of each island they visit, including both the popular tourist stops, and hidden treasures of Fiji. Passengers might visit a pearl farm one day, or a local village or serene waterfall the next, with time for snorkelling on a vibrant coral reef in between.
The Reef Endeavour features a swimming pool, spa and sauna, mini gym, glass-bottom boat for exploring the reefs, and platforms and facilities for diving and boat access. In addition, all meals are included, along with daily stopovers, water activities, and entertainment aboard ship.
