This Fiji Cruise Vacation: Fiji Highlights Cruise and Resort Package was planned for a honeymoon couple from Seattle. They wanted a romantic vacation in Fiji, but they wanted to explore multiple islands and have some truly memorable experiences. This Fiji Cruise Vacation allowed them to see the beauty of the Yasawa Islands and finish at a romantic, adults-only resort.

They began their Fiji Cruise Vacation with a spectacular, all-inclusive 4-night cruise with Blue Lagoon Cruises. The cruise allowed them to discover the pristine beauty, adventure, and fascinating culture of the Yasawa Islands, all while enjoying delicious food and drinks and authentiic Fijian hospitality. They spent their first day exploring the Sacred Islands with no one else around, free to swim, snorkel, and beach comb at their leisure.

The next day, they cruised through the Yasawa Islands to the famed Blue Lagoon. This crystal-clear lagoon is filled with colorful corals and magnificent marine life. They spent the day on Blue Lagoon Cruises’ private beach. Since they were avid divers, they decided to book a diving excursion in this incredibly vibrant reef system. In the evening, they enjoyed a traditional Lovo meal and a Meke cultural performance with dancing and storytelling.

Continuing their Fiji Cruise Vacation, they explored the Sawa-I-Lau Caves and visited the village of Tamusua. Here, they were treated to a very special and authentic Fiji experience. The villagers performed the yaqona (kava) ceremony and welcomed their guests to a traditional feast, just as they would put on for special occasions. Their last stop was Drawaqa, where they snorkeled with manta rays and enjoyed a delicious barbecue dinner under the stars.

After 4 incredible nights aboard the Fiji Princess, they transferred to the luxurious Lomani Island Resort to end their Fiji Cruise Vacation with a few days of utter relaxation. Hidden among swaying palms and tropical gardens, Lomani offers privacy, romance, and rejuvenation. They spent their last 3 nights enjoying the tranquil atmosphere of this island paradise.
