Blue Lagoon Cruises
It’s a pinch-yourself moment when you’re lying on a sparkling white sandy beach, with an endless horizon of azure blue water, sipping on a cocktail served in a coconut shell… When all of a sudden your dreamy thoughts are rudely interrupted by the sound of a deep rumbling drum-beat.
But then you realise that’s simply the signal that lunch has been prepared by your private chef and is now laid out on a picnic table at Blue Lagoon Cruises’ exclusive island beach Nanuya Lailai!
This is the daily reality for the passengers on board the ‘Fiji Princess’ – a boutique, small cruising ship which travels through the spectacularly unpoilt Yasawa Islands North West of the Fijian mainland.
The maximum 68 guests are today being treated to a sumptuous buffet style selection of freshly cooked and locally caught fish, barbecued meats and freshly prepared salads of local produce – and this is nothing compared to the ‘lovo’ which our crew started preparing hours ago for our dinner this evening. Similar to a New Zealand ‘hangi’, the crew made a performance out of digging an underground cooking oven and delicately wrapping the meats in palm fronds to be roasted throughout the day before being served on the beach under the stars for dinner tonight.
With such limited numbers and a small, unimposing vessel, this cruise is nothing like the big river cruises or ocean going cruises. In fact, throughout our seven night cruise we only cruise for a maximum of four hours each day, giving us so much time to explore the surrounding islands, snorkel, or simply curl up on the beach with a good book borrowed from the ship’s library.
The activities are many and varied, and you can choose to do as little or as much as you like – swim in the famous Blue Lagoon caves, snorkel with amazing corals, fish and even sharks and manta rays, visit local island villages and schools, and so much more.
But it’s not any one of these things necessarily that make this cruise memorable – it’s the people. They say Fijians are the happiest in the world – and it’s hard to disagree. You’ll encounter big BULA smiles everywhere you turn, and the crew strive to create lifelong memories of a totally spoiled holiday in their unspoilt paradise.
Blue Lagoon Cruises offer 3, 4 or 7 night cruises on the Fiji Princess departing Port Denarau.
