Fiji Bound? How About a Fiji Cruise!

Top 5 reasons to see Fiji with Blue Lagoon Cruises


To see the real Fiji, you simply have to travel by boat. A country made up of 332 islands and 552 islets cannot be fully appreciated from land. With 106 inhabited islands and a huge range of luxury hotels and resorts, the Fiji holiday possibilities are endless. But why choose one island when you can go on a Fiji cruise and see multiple islands all on 1 trip?

While island hopping is fun, it means unpacking and checking in and out of several hotel rooms. On Blue Lagoon Cruises around Fiji, you just unpack once and sit back to enjoy the ride. With excursions organised for you and all your food provided a Fiji cruise is undoubtedly the easiest and most hassle-free ways to see Fiji. Here are the top 5 reasons to see Fiji with Blue Lagoon Cruises.

1. Real island experience

Whether you choose the 3, 4 or 7 day Fiji cruise, you will get to see sides of the islands that you wouldn’t get to witness on a land-based holiday. Going further into the untouched and pristine Yasawa and Mamanuca Islands than any day trip.

2. Local food

While onboard Blue Lagoon’s Fiji Princess, all of your meals are included. Each day you will be treated to freshly cooked meals by the Fijian crew. Expect local dishes and international delights, all cooked with local ingredients onboard. On some Blue Lagoon cruises itineraries, there is even an opportunity to have a Fijian cooking lesson with the ship’s chef.

3. Deserted beaches

Imagine waking up each day, not with an ocean view from your hotel room, but actually on the ocean! The Fiji Princess doesn’t go into port or dock in any marinas. She drops anchor each night in a deserted bay on a different idyllic Fijian island. The small boutique cruise ship allows the crew to choose the smallest, best spots to stop each day for a refreshing swim and each night for cocktail hour on the beach. With free time each day, you can enjoy the beach however you like—swimming, relaxing, or paddling around on 1 of the ship’s kayaks.

4. Local Fijian crew

What better way to find out what Fiji is really about than spending time with locals. The friendly crew on the Blue Lagoon Cruises’ Fiji Princess are all from Fiji and can answer any questions you have about local culture and island life. There is also an opportunity on some itineraries to visit local villages, schools, and church services.

5. Sunsets

On a Fiji cruise, the sunsets are truly incredible. After a long day of exploring, relaxing, swimming, snorkeling and kayaking, join the Blue Lagoon Cruises crew for canapés on the beach, and watch the incredible sunset with a tropical cocktail in hand.

Her favourite port of call is Barcelona because it’s close to the city and she is a sucker for Gaudi and tapas! A big fan of leisurely river cruising as well, Sarah loves nothing more than stopping off along the banks of the Loire Valley for a spot of wine tasting and visiting Bordeaux for the history and amazing French food. On her cruise holiday to-do list is the Panama Canal, an Arctic expedition cruise and a river cruise through Asia.
