February 12th 8:30 PM: We depart Los Angeles International Airport LAX, (add-ons from other cities are available) for our non-stop flight to FIJI. Overnight flight crossing the International Dateline so add a day. Advantage International and Traveling Culturati staff member will be onboard with you. A meal in flight.

Feb 14th 6 AM: Bula (Fijian Greeting) Happy Valentine’s Day and Welcome to FIJI. We’ll spend our first day at the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji, located around a lagoon with lush tropical gardens and a myriad of facilities. Have breakfast and relax in your private room for the day. Enjoy the amenities the resort has to offer and become acquainted with Fiji. Later you will be transferred to the nearby Port of Denarau for our cruise aboard the Fiji Princess.

Our cruise ship, the M.V. Fiji Princess, accommodates only 68 passengers and it is all ours, meaning your cruise will be personal and friendly, complimented by their 100% Fijian crew.  With nearly 70 years of experience cruising the islands of Fiji, Blue Lagoon Cruises knows how to show you the best of the South Pacific. Set sail on the Fiji Princess from Port Denarau for the outer Mamanucas. The first overnight anchorage is in a gorgeous secluded location at Modriki Island. Seen in the Tom Hanks’ movie ‘Cast Away’, tonight, that is where you are the castaway. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and canapes as you watch the sunset.  Meals: B, D

Sea conditions permitting, there is an opportunity to swim with the sharks at a secret reef location en route to our next destination.

Meals: B,L,D

 Feb 17th: YALOBI BAY – As the Fiji Princess arrives at the stunning Sacred Isles, you’ll be sure you are lost in paradise. The backdrop of the neighboring Waya Lailai with volcanic formations is breathtaking. Spend the remainder of the day swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing. Fiji style high tea is served following a cooking lesson on how to make ‘Roti in Lolo’. Watch the sunset and enjoy the Captains’ Dinner. Meals: B,L,D
