Fiji is blessed with warm azure waters, sugar white beaches, rainbow-colored reefs, and unique cultural experiences like fire-walking, hula dancing, and the kava welcome ceremony.

A cruise is one of the best ways to explore some of these unspoiled Fijian islands. Think beach barbecues, swimming, snorkeling and visiting local Fijian villages.
