Blue Lagoon Cruises – All Fijian Crew
Fiji is a tropical holiday destination where dreams are made. More than 300 perfect little islands form this incredible South Pacific nation, each island offering a unique slice of paradise.
Blue Lagoon Cruises offer three boutique itineraries, each taking you on a journey into Fiji’s spectacular Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. Sail to uninhabited tropical islands, anchor in private lagoons, spend countless hours lazing on golden beaches and swim, snorkel or dive in clear blue waters.
The Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, which are located north-west of Viti Levu, or ‘mainland’ Fiji. The picturesque Mamanuca Islands are dotted throughout the sparkling sea and are generally tiny in size, but striking in beauty. Their majestic neighbours, the Yasawas, lie just a little further north. These islands form what is arguably some of the world’s most spectacular and dramatic island landscapes, all easily accessible with Blue Lagoon Cruises.
Accommodating up to 68 passengers and measuring only 179 feet (55 metres) in length, MV Fijian Princess (pictured above) can access bays and islands that would be impossible to reach in a large ship. The ship can get so close to shore and tie off a coconut tree so that you can swim to the beach!
Discover the untouched South Pacific and explore the spectacular Sacred Islands, Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands with Blue Lagoon Cruises.
My wife, Karen, and I took a Blue Lagoon Cruise 30 years ago. It was a trip of a lifetime. From the trips ashore for swimming and meeting villagers to Fijian ‘lovos’ on the beach and sing-a-longs on board ship with the Fijian crew, it was a superb relaxing time.
I remember being taken to a small cave where we had to dive under some rocks at the entrance and came up in a large cave with sunlight streaming in through a break in the rocks. I’m not sure that Blue Lagoon offer that experience anymore, but what ever you do on your trip will be special for you.
Here are some pics of our very memorable trip…
