Known as the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji is one of the most beautiful island destinations in the world. Made up of 333 captivating islands, Fiji is famous for its soft coral, white sand beaches, turquoise waters and pristine natural environment with over 100 uninhabited islands – all waiting to be explored.
As water separates most of the island’s attractions, Fiji is the perfect destination to explore on a cruise where you can discover the best of both worlds with both land and water-based activities. Hop off onto the warm sand to suntan on a completely private island, explore the museums and attractions of the larger Fijian islands, and swim and snorkel with sharks and manta rays. With a year-round tropical climate, it’s an idyllic cruise destination in any season.
There are plenty of cruise itineraries available that explore Fiji, but if you’re looking for an authentic Fiji experience, we recommend the following cruises:
Blue Lagoon Cruises
The Blue Lagoon offers three exciting cruise itineraries through the beautiful Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, which are known for their luscious papaya and mango plantations. The cruises run over the course of three or four nights, or you have the option of combining the two with a seven-night itinerary. These cruises are mainly adults-only, but there are a few departures available for families. You will only spend a maximum of 4 hours per day cruising, which leaves plenty of time to explore attractions off-board. Highlights of these cruises include a stop at a private island where you can swim, suntan, and snorkel in your little slice of paradise. Fiji’s Blue Lagoon cruises have been running for over 50 years, and they’ve perfected the ultimate Fijian itinerary. Their staff is also 100% Fijian, offering one of the friendliest cruises in the world.
