Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 
Sail into a stunning sunset over a delicious welcome meal following an afternoon filled with beach activities at Tivua Island.

Day 2 
At Makogai Island, participate in a customary Fijian ritual and take a walking tour of the former leper colony, which has been closed to lepers since the middle of the 20th century. In this turtle refuge, you may snorkel above enormous clam gardens and participate in a traditional song and dance performance by the local primary school kids.

Day 3
Discover a stunning beach at Lavena, located on Taveuni's untamed southern coast. Then, trek to the breathtaking Bouma Falls and freshwater pool. Talk with the locals while having a picnic lunch on the beach. If the weather permits, there's also a guided kayak cruise along the coast.

Day 4
On the northernmost island of Lau, Wailagilala, explore the remnants of an abandoned lighthouse and go snorkeling with the plethora of fish.

Day 5
Immerse yourself in the amazing scenery, pristine reefs, strange mushroom shaped islands and hidden caves of the Bay of Islands at Qilaqila, on the northwest end of Vanua Balavu.

Day 6
Once we get to Oneata, the locals will greet us and take us to their Methodist Tongan Church for Sunday services. The Oneata choir's harmonies will motivate you.

Day 7
Today the ship sets out early to cruise to Komo Island or Fulaga Island. Both are former volcanic craters that are well-known for their stunning corals and crystalline lagoons.  We get to one of the Yagasa Islands this afternoon for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and coral gazing.

Day 8 
Discover the uninhabited, holy island of Vuaqava, which is located in the middle of a lake and is home to several turtles, snakes, and bird species. On the beach, you might be served a delicacy of coconut crabs, made locally.

Day 9

Be welcomed & entertained by the people of Naikeleyaga Village on the island of Kabara or Komo known for their wood   turning and Tongan heritage. Experience a traditional Meke, Sevusevu & lovo quite different from the traditional Fijian.

Day 10
Shaped like a shoe Today we are going to Totoya Island. When we go to a nearby school, the kids will show you their work and surprise you with a performance.  We will also be able to investigate their reefs.

Day 11

Upon our arrival in Kadavu, we proceed to the hamlet of Nalotu for a traditional Sevusevu greeting and a tour of the hamlet, where you may observe the production of pottery and fishing traps. The time-honored custom of clay pottery making, which is uncommon in Fiji, is still practiced by the women of Nalotu village.

Day 12
At Port Denarau, disembark with a sense of renewal, ease, and readiness to tackle the next challenge.
