Fiji Travel Guide

Fiji Cruises Highlights

  • Port Denarau, Nadi: Port Denarau is more than just a gateway to the Mamanucas and Yasawa Islands; it's a destination packed with adventures! A modern complex welcomes travelers, brimming with shopping outlets, restaurants, and bars. Close by, the cultural village of Viseisei and the famed Garden of the Sleeping Giant are perfect spots for a day excursion. And don't miss a traditional Fijian firewalking show!
  • Suva: Fiji's capital, Suva, is a melting pot of cultures and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Oceania. From the port, you're within easy reach of the Fiji Museum, with its impressive historical collections, the vibrant Municipal Market, and the serene Thurston Gardens. Suva is a juxtaposition of the old and new, where colonial buildings stand beside shopping malls.
  • Lautoka: Known as the Sugar City, Lautoka's charm lies in its scenic beauty and laid-back vibes. It's less touristy, offering a more authentic glimpse into local life. Wander the botanical gardens, explore the sugar mill, or shop for handicrafts at the local market. It's your slice of peaceful paradise. 
  • Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple (Nadi): Dive into Fiji's multicultural heritage with a visit to the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere. Its Dravidian architecture (from South India) is a feast for the eyes, while the spiritual atmosphere offers a peaceful retreat.
  • Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park: These majestic dunes are a wonder of the natural world and a hotspot for history buffs. Ancient pottery shards and even human remains have been discovered here, dating back 2,600 years.
  • Tavoro Waterfalls, Taveuni Island: Taveuni Island is home to the Bouma National Heritage Park, where you'll find the stunning Tavoro Waterfalls. Three separate falls offer beautiful vistas, with pools to take a refreshing dip.
  • Fiji Museum, Suva: Nestled in the heart of Suva's Thurston Gardens, the Fiji Museum holds relics that span over a thousand years of Fijian history. It's a profound way to understand the island's rich traditions and colonial past.
  • Navala Village: Step back in time in this authentic Fijian village. The bures (traditional homes) offer a glimpse into indigenous life. Engage with local customs and participate in a unique cultural ritual kava ceremony.
  • Mamanuca Islands: A group of volcanic islands that are as picturesque as they are fun. Crystal-clear waters provide perfect snorkeling opportunities, while the palm-fringed beaches are ideal for relaxation.
  • Cloud 9: Float in paradise! This unique two-level floating platform is situated close to the Mamanuca Islands, offering snorkeling, internationally-themed food, and the unparalleled experience of lounging over the serene waters of Fiji.

Fiji Cruises Travel Tips

  • In general, the nation of Fiji is much less concerned with time than the Western world is, and citizens tend to just go with the flow. Don't be surprised if your tour guide isn't as concerned as you are with taking off on time.
  • You'll probably hear people saying "Bula!" to you at every stop. This is the national greeting of Fiji and literally means "life." People say "bula" in greeting, after someone sneezes, and every occasion in between!
  • The Fijian language has no gender-specific terms, so you might hear "he" in reference to a woman.
  • Fijians are all about community and respect, so a friendly "Bula" (hello) goes a long way. It's more than just a greeting; it's a wish for happiness, and using it shows you're interested in their culture. Also, it's customary to dress modestly when you're off the ship, especially in villages. So, gents, keep those shirts on, and ladies, save the swimwear for the beaches and pools.
  • Be wary of eating reef fish, as they can easily make you sick. Fish species like mahi-mahi, tuna, and marlin are fine to consume.
  •  Fiji is generally safe, but, you know, take the usual precautions to protect your belongings. The local currency is the Fijian dollar, and while credit cards are widely accepted, it's smart to have some cash for small purchases, especially in remote areas.
  •  Fiji is blessed with warm weather year-round, but it's also pretty tropical. Think lightweight, breathable clothes, a reliable pair of sandals, and something a tad dressy for ship events. Don't forget your adventure gear - swimsuits, sunblock, and a hat are non-negotiables. And since you'll be exploring, add a day pack, insect repellent, and a reusable water bottle to your luggage.

Fiji Cruise Packages

Quick Facts

Embarking on a Fiji cruise takes you to the heart of the South Pacific's jewel. Each port is a unique doorway to new experiences, cultural immersion, and memories that will last a lifetime. So, whether you're chasing the sunshine without the bustle or don't mind the tropical temperament of the wet season for a more secluded getaway, Fiji's got something perfect for you!

  • Getting There

    Setting sail for Fiji is like drifting into a world taken straight from a fantasy novel. In the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji is a cluster of sparkling islands, most ringed by pristine waters and unspoiled beaches. But how do you get there on a cruise?  

    Most cruises set their course for Fiji's two main islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, with the primary port being in the capital city of Suva on Viti Levu. This bustling port is the gateway to your Fijian adventure, equipped to welcome international cruise ships, providing you with your first glimpse of the country's vibrant culture and lush landscapes. With modern docking facilities, the port of Suva is designed to transition you from your sea journey into this island paradise effortlessly. Remember, your voyage to Fiji isn't just a trip; it's the beginning of a love affair with the Pacific.

  • The Perfect Time for a Fiji Cruise

    Setting sail on a Fiji cruise is a fantastic way to explore the stunning beauty of this tropical paradise. Figuring out the best time to set sail for Fiji is key to maximizing your cruise experience. Fiji, known for its tropical warmth, offers great weather year-round, making cruising a delight in any season. However, let's dive into the specifics to find the perfect time for your Fiji cruise adventure.  

    May to October: Cruising Fiji during its winter months – which are far from cold – means less humidity and comfortable temperatures typically in the 20s (Celsius). This dry season is the prime time for cruising, offering sunny days, cooler nights, and minimal rainfall. It's perfect for cruisers looking to enjoy the warm sun on the deck of their cruise ship without the intense heat. Plus, cruising Fiji in this period is an ideal escape from colder climates elsewhere, providing a sunny retreat on the seas.  

    November to April: This period marks Fiji's summer and wet season. Cruisers can expect higher humidity and more frequent tropical showers during this time. While the showers are usually brief, they bring a lush vibrancy to the islands. Cruising Fiji in these months might mean a bit more cloud cover, but it also offers a more exclusive and serene experience, with fewer tourists on board and at the ports. The summer months are perfect for cruisers who don't mind the tropical climate and prefer a more secluded and tranquil cruising experience.  

    Whether you're after the consistent sunny weather of the dry season or the lush, serene atmosphere of the wet season, cruising Fiji promises a spectacular journey. Each season offers a unique cruising experience, making Fiji a versatile and enchanting destination for all cruisers.  

  • Why Book a Cruise to Fiji?

    Considering a trip to Fiji? Imagine elevating your travel experience from great to unforgettable by choosing a cruise. When your ship nears the Fijian shores, you're treated to a breathtaking panorama unique to sea travel. The archipelago unfolds before your eyes, with the sun setting over the islands and the ocean shimmering under the sky. But the scenic journey is just the beginning.  

    One of the biggest perks of cruising is the hassle-free nature of it all. Say goodbye to the stress of multiple bookings and chaotic transit schedules. On a cruise, your accommodation, transit, meals, and entertainment are all rolled into one package, leaving you more time to savor every moment of your vacation. All you need to do is unpack once and let the adventure unfold around you.  

    What's more, the value for money you get from a cruise package is exceptional. Everything, including diverse activities, delicious meals, and thrilling onboard entertainment, is included in your fare, making for a cost-effective journey without compromising on the experience.  

    Cruises often have the added advantage of offering unique access to areas typical tourists may not venture into, like exclusive visits to private islands or secluded bays. It's almost like discovering a secret world hidden within Fiji, a paradise reserved just for you. Add to that a variety of onboard activities — ranging from relaxation in the spa to gourmet dining experiences, workshops, and shows — and there's never a dull moment.  

    Another joy of cruise travel? The social aspect. Cruises are a fantastic place to meet like-minded adventurers from around the world. The shared experiences, whether during communal dining or group excursions, create a friendly, intimate atmosphere.  

    Opting for a Fiji cruise is not just choosing a journey; it's selecting a seamless, stress-free, and immersive way to experience the heart of Fiji, combining the ease of relaxation with the thrill of discovery.

  • Experience the Flavors of Fiji

    Cruising to Fiji isn't just a feast for the eyes; it's an invitation to explore rich flavors and unique dishes that you won't find anywhere else. Fijian cuisine is an exciting medley heavily influenced by tropical fruits, vegetables, and the abundant seafood right off its coasts.  

    One must-try is "Kokoda," Fiji's answer to ceviche. This refreshing dish features fish marinated in citrus and coconut cream - talk about a tropical flavor explosion! And don't even think about skipping "Lovo," a traditional feast where food is slow-cooked in a banana leaf underground. The result? Tender, smoky goodness that's impossible to resist.  

    For an authentic experience, hunt down a "Fijian magiti" (feast) offered by many local villages. This isn't just eating; it's a cultural experience, sharing food cooked in earth ovens, often followed by traditional Fijian music and kava ceremonies.  

    Oh, and you'll find the fresh seafood irresistible. From mahi-mahi to crab, it's all straight from the ocean to your plate. Dining by the sea, with the freshest catch? Yes, please!  

    Are you in the mood for something to sip on? Try the local beers or a fresh coconut right from the tree. But for the adventurous, there's kava, a traditional drink that's a huge part of the social fabric here. It's a bit peppery and has a unique earthy taste.

  • Immerse Yourself in Fiji's Culture

    Step into a world of tradition and celebration on your Fiji cruise. Fiji is more than sun-kissed beaches and postcard-perfect horizons; it's a cultural sanctuary brimming with traditions and customs that reflect its rich history.  

    Fijians are renowned for their warmth and hospitality, and visitors are often greeted with the friendly exclamation, "Bula!" It's a lifestyle, a way of welcoming you into their community with open arms. Embrace it, and you'll be whisked into the vibrant communal life that's central to the Fijian way.  

    You can't talk about Fiji's culture without mentioning its spirited festivals. The South Pacific Music Festival, with its array of Pacific artists, encapsulates the heart of the islands through music.

    Meanwhile, the Bula Festival celebrates Fijian heritage and provides travelers with a taste of local art, food, and the famous 'Firewalking Ceremony' by the warriors of Beqa Island.  

    Experience the 'Yaqona' ceremony, where kava, a ceremonial drink, is shared to welcome guests, fostering a sense of unity and respect between visitor and host. It's not just a drink; it's a cultural emblem, an experience that symbolizes Fijian society's communal and harmonious spirit.  

    Your cruise to Fiji is not just a getaway; it's a deep dive into a way of life that cherishes community, tradition, and the joys of a shared table and shared stories. Ready to join in?

    Most Fiji cruises travel for 7 or 8 days. If you want a cruise that also takes you to a port city in Australia or New Zealand, you can opt for a 10-12-day cruise. Your journey will likely take you to the popular Fiji port cities of Suva and Lautoka. You'll be able to experience the unique Fijian culture and learn about the history of the native people.

  • What’s Included on a Fiji Ocean Cruise?

    Your Fiji cruise will include premium lodging, all meals, and excursions at your port sites. Some excursions may not be included, so if you choose to participate in an activity that your cruise does not cover, be sure to have the proper currency. Fiji accepts the Fijian dollar, and many businesses accept credit cards. 

  • What’s the Best Cruise for a Fiji Ocean Cruise?

    Fiji is a popular tourist destination, especially for Western visitors. As such, many of the world's largest cruise lines feature Fiji tours, including Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean. You can also find Fiji cruises with smaller companies such as Blue Lagoon Cruises, Captain Cook Cruises, and Paul Gauguin Cruises.

  • How Much Does a Fiji Ocean Cruise Cost?

    For many of the larger cruise lines such as Carnival, Fiji ocean cruises cost around $700 per person for a 10-12-day journey. However, this price does not include any travel costs you may incur to arrive at their port city in Australia. More expensive cruises can cost upwards of $1,000 to $2,000 per person. The biggest factor in your overall price will be traveling to and from the port city, which is typically Brisbane or Sydney, Australia.
