Day 4
Monday

An early morning fishing trip is on offer today with the crew. There will be time for a snorkel, swim or kayak before you leave Naukacuva and cruise to one of the most beautiful and remote island groups on the cruise, the Sacred Islands, where the rest of your day is spent enjoying this tropical paradise. Say farewell to the three night guests and then head ashore to a deserted beach for a picnic lunch. Enjoy a swim, wander the beaches, kayak in the lagoon and in the afternoon meet the new four night guests and learn the art of Fiji High Tea. Back on-board it's happy hour at the bar with cocktails, cold beers and wines on the upper deck.

Day 5

Laze on the sun deck as you cruise past several of the larger Yasawa Islands and beautiful bays. Your destination today is the famed Blue Lagoon, a superb stretch of water circled by islands, that is filled with fascinating coral reefs. Nanuya Lailai is home to Blue Lagoon Cruises' very own private beach. Tie up to a coconut tree and lunch is served on-board, while on shore your 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 to a secluded stretch of beach to top up the tan. Enjoy a coconut demonstration and diving for all standards can be pre-booked for this location.

Day 6
Wednesday

Most of the day is at leisure here at your private beach. Laze around or take part in some of the fun Fijian activities. A delicious buffet lunch is served in the dining bure on shore before it’s back on-board as Fiji Princess heads North to the mystical island of Sawa i Lau. Afternoon tea is served on-board as you cruise. On arrival set off on a private tour of the Sawa i Lau caves. This evening there's a special visit to the village of Tamusua to see a yaqona ceremony and a Fiji village style feast prepared and cooked by the women. Served outside, you will be Fijian for the night, sitting on mats, eating local food and sharing stories with the villagers about their culture and their home. Later return to Fiji Princess for a movie night.

Day 7
Thursday

Today Fiji Princess heads on out of the bay bound for Drawaqa Island where 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. Conditions permitting you will have the chance to snorkel with manta rays in small escorted groups. If getting wet is not your thing two other great activities are on offer - a visit a local village school or abseiling. Dinner this evening is a barbecue served on the upper deck of the vessel under the stars and this party night is the perfect way to celebrate your time in the Yasawas. The bar is open and the ship's resident DJ plays the tunes on the upper deck. If you haven’t already learned the Bula Bula dance you soon will.

I will always use DialAFlight as they give a good old fashioned kind of service that is lacking with many companies today

DialAFlight made it very easy and stress-free to book a rather complicated journey. They were very pleasant and remembered me when I called up a few weeks later with questions. Very impressed and would definitely use them again!

I was well prepared for the long journey and coped well with the time spent in Hong Kong Airport. As l get older however l might take advantage of the airline lounges as comfortable seating was not always available. Thank you for your advice and service.

We had excellent advice and help from Ashley with numerous queries as our travel plans developed into a significant itinerary (London - Hong Kong - Auckland - Queenstown - Melbourne - Sydney - Fiji - Singapore - London). Ashley worked hard to find us direct flights at a keen price and effectively saved us a day of travel in transit which other travel agents offered on their routing. We found DialAFlight were able to offer a wider range of flight options than other major flight specialists and all at keen prices. Definitely you are our travel agent of choice and we used you again to include my sister on part of our itinerary which also worked very well.

Richard was extremely helpful and kept me up to date with changes to my journey. He was looking at hotels for me in South Korea as my flights had changed, but instead informed me that I had been offered an extra night free provided by Korean Air. He was very friendly and promptly answered any questions I had. I would definitely use DialAFlight again and fly with Korean Air as they were also really good.
