Late morning, travel to a very special location where the brave will get to swim with reef sharks! Of course they are only gentle reef sharks but they still make for a great snorkel experience!

There is a special opportunity to attend a village church service, which you’ll find to be a very moving experience. The atmosphere, singing and uniqueness of where you are will provide a great memory to remind you of the wonderful people of Fiji.

Lunch is served on board as you cruise to the next slice of paradise, not far away. You can partake in a Fijian cooking lesson and help prepare a tasty Fijian fish-dish, Kokoda. Yum! Basket weaving is another traditional Fijian craft, which you can try your hand at.

 Anchorage in the lagoon of the SACRED ISLANDS

 Day Five

Take some last snaps of this spectacular location (but save some room on your camera because you're cruising into paradise!).

Laze on the sun deck as you cruise past several of the larger Yasawa Islands and beautiful bays. The destination today is the famed Blue Lagoon. This superb stretch of water is circled by islands, creating a lagoon that is filled with fascinating coral reefs easily seen from the surface of the crystal clear waters.

One of those islands, Nanuya Lailai, is home to Blue Lagoon Cruises very own private beach. Watch as the crew position the vessel right up to the beach and tie her off to a coconut tree! Lunch is served on-board, whilst on shore the private 'Fiji style beach club' awaits, along with sun loungers, onshore massage, a bar and beach volleyball. You’ll have plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling, fish feeding, viewing coral from the glass bottom boat or just wandering along to a secluded stretch of beach to top up the tan. Watch a coconut demonstration – how to climb that palm, get the coconut and husk them, then appreciate fresh coconut milk straight from the coconut for afternoon tea. Delicious!

Diving for both novices and experienced divers can be pre-booked for this location. There are many awesome dive sites within easy reach (diving is an extra cost). Blue Lagoon Cruises also offer a number of guided ‘reef safari’ (snorkelling tours) to show you the best spots around the island.

Happy hour is served on shore from the beach bar along with canapes. Tonight is a very special night with a traditional Lovo meal. The food is cooked underground in a specially prepared pit. Watch the unearthing of the Lovo and be tantalized by the smells. The dining room tonight is on the beach under the coconut palms and the stars.

Following dinner is a fantastic meke with singing, dancing and story telling by a group of local villagers, come to share their company with Blue Lagoon guests.

Anchorage NANUYA LAILAI, THE BLUE LAGOON

Day Six

The azure waters will tempt you to an early morning swim. Dive off the boat, head ashore to the beach or paddle a kayak in the surrounding tranquil waters.

Sit down to an a la carte breakfast, cooked to your liking along with the buffet of fresh tropical fruits, yogurts, cereals, fruit juices, tea and coffee.

Most of the day is at leisure here at Blue Lagoon Cruises' private beach. Laze around or take part in some great Fijian activities

A delicious buffet lunch is served in the dining bure on shore before it’s back on-board. Fiji Princess heads North to the next destination, the mystical island of Sawa i Lau. Afternoon tea is served on-board as you cruise.

On arrival set off on a private guided visit to the Sawa i Lau caves. Steps rise from the shore up to the first cave. You can view the majestic cavern from the stairs or take to the water. A short swim through an underwater passage takes you into the second of these stunning limestone caves.

This evening includes a special visit to the village of Tamusua. A yaqona ceremony, a guided walk around the village and a Fiji village style 'feast' prepared and cooked by the village women awaits you. This is not a feast tailored for visitors but one exactly as the village would hold themselves for special occasions. Served outside if the weather is good, you will be Fijian for the night, sitting on mats, eating Fijian village food and sharing stories with the villagers about their culture and their home.

Return to Fiji Princess for a movie night. Pull up a chair or a sun lounger on the upper theatre deck, get a cold drink in hand and enjoy the one movie that just has to be shown on a Blue Lagoon Cruise – the classic 'Blue Lagoon' starring Brooke Shields.

Anchorage just off TAMUSUA BAY, YASAWA ISLAND

Day Seven

Fiji Princess heads on out of the bay bound for Drawaqa Island. At your leisure enjoy a la carte breakfast, cooked to your liking.

On arrival at Drawaqa, a Marine Biologist will tell you all about the local fish, marine life and the conservation work the Vinaka Fiji Volunteer team are doing in this area. If you are lucky enough to be here during May to October then an introduction to the magnificent manta rays, whose feeding ground is just nearby, will be included. Conditions permitting you will have the opportunity to snorkel with these wonderful creatures in small escorted groups. From October to April aguided 'Reef Safari' snorkelling tour is conducted to see the prolific corals, clams and marine life in this area. This is also a superb dive area and optional dives under expert instruction – perhaps your very first scuba dive can be booked. Certified divers well catered for as well! (Diving is an additional cost).

If getting wet is not your thing two other great activities are on offer. Visit a local village school where Vinaka Fiji volunteers are at work. Or, for a truly exhilarating view, from the island cliff top to the stunning waters below, have a go at abseiling!

Dinner this evening is a barbecue served on the upper deck of the vessel dining under the stars! A special feast and party night is the perfect way to celebrate your time in the Yasawas. The bar is open and our resident DJ 'Fiji Afro Jack' spins the tunes on the upper deck. If you haven’t already learnt the Bula Bula dance you soon will.

Anchorage DRAWAQA ISLAND

Day Eight

An early start for the crew as unfortunately it is time to cruise for home and return to Denarau Marina. Enjoy breakfast on-board as Fiji Princess cruises back toward her home port. 

All guests will be farewelled with the traditional Isa Lei song from the crew, as your exploration of the beautiful Yasawa Islands comes to an end. 

We just came home from a 7 day Blue Lagoon Cruise in Fiji. This was a wonderful way to spend a week in Fiji. We moved to a different island every day. Some were private islands and we never saw another group of tourists the entire week."www.cruisecritic.com
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful cruise. It was such a different cruise experience. We anchored out every night and never went near any ports. There was well supervised snorkeling once or twice daily on different reefs. The entire crew was the most friendly and happy I have ever experienced."www.cruisecritic.com
