    This wonderful cruise is ideal for those with limited time who want to sample the incredible Fiji Islands.

    The cruise takes in the majestic southern Yasawa Islands and also spends time at the strikingly beautiful Modriki and Sacred Islands. It’s not just nature that will have you captivated on this boutique cruise; you’ll get to know and love the traditional Fijian culture!

    To ensure you have the best possible cruise experience, we use ‘flexible cruising’. What this means is that we’re prepared to alter our itineraries, either when necessary, or when some exciting opportunity arises. For example, if there is some special event taking part in a local Yasawa Village, which you really should see, then we will alter our cruise route to take you there. Or, if we think that that our destined anchorage for the night is not going to be as sheltered as a bay on the other side of the island, we’ll up-anchor and move. Cruising through a region of coral lagoons and isolated island anchorages is weather dependent and so, at times, our itineraries may need to be altered. However we’ll always endeavour to ensure all of the highlights of each cruise are enjoyed by our guests.
