Fiji Princess

Our boutique cruise ship

Fiji Princess is meant for boutique cruising and allows the exploration of countless tranquil inlets and bays, not accessible to larger cruise ships.

Blue Lagoon Cruises ship, Fiji Princess has been purpose-built for cruising and selected for the ocean going conditions of the Fiji waters, especially around the Yasawa Islands.

Small enough to tie off to a coconut tree…

The small size of Blue Lagoon Cruises boutique cruise ship, Fiji Princess is just one of the things that makes a cruise with us so special. Accommodating up to 68 passengers and measuring only 179 feet (55 metres) in length, we can access bays and islands that would be impossible to reach in a large ship. We can get so close to shore, that we can tie off to a coconut tree and you can swim to the beach! Here are some reasons we love small ship cruising:

  • Small ship cruising allows Fiji Princess to tie up to coconut trees during the day. We can explore the lagoons and coves that would be inaccessible to a large vessel.
  • With a maximum of 68 guests on Fiji Princess, no matter which beach or island we visit, you won’t be overwhelmed by crowds. Most the time, our passengers are the only people on the beach!
  • Because of the smaller passenger numbers, we pride ourselves on our personal and friendly Fijian service. We usually operate on a two to one passenger to staff ratio and everyone is referred to on a first-name basis.
  • Small ship cruising offers a very relaxed atmosphere and environment. Because of this, you'll adapt with the greatest of ease to 'Fiji Time'.
  • You only need to unpack once but you’ll visit numerous islands.
  • Our cruises are very casual and informal. There is no need to bring several outfits to wear for evening functions.
  • Our passengers often make friends for life, given the social atmosphere of small ship cruising.
  • If conditions are rough due to winds and swells, it's easy for us to alter our itinerary to cruise on the sheltered side of the islands.

Cruising schedule

Once a week, Fiji Princess departs Denarau Marina for her voyage into the enchanting Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. There, she spends seven days cruising from one spectacular setting to the next before returning to Denarau (this is our 7 night cruise). We also operate a high-speed transfer vessel, which meets Fiji Princess in the Sacred Islands, connecting our 3 and 4 night guests with the cruise. Operating our itineraries in this way means one thing: we spend more time cruising the Yasawas, and less time getting there!

Facilities

The excellent on-board amenities include:

  • An open-air dining room with views out over the sea to the rear of the vessel
  • Shaded sky deck bar and saloon bar
  • Sun loungers on the large upper sky deck
  • Glass bottom boat
  • Stand up paddle boards 
  • Clear kayaks
  • A boutique with a range of souvenir items
  • Senikai Spa offering a range of massage and beauty treatments
  • Splash pool
  • A library of reading materials and games
  • In room DVD viewing
  • Free WIFI (available where reception allows)
  • Self-service guest laundry

Dress standard

On board casual and informal, even at dinner. To enter villages men will require a sulu (provided) and women need to dress modestly with shoulders covered. 


Transfer Vessels

Blue Lagoon Cruises use a high-speed transfer vessel 'Cougar II' to transport passengers on the 3 Night and 4 Night itineraries one-way (either to, or from the Sacred Islands). This allows for Blue Lagoon Cruises' vessel, Fiji Princess, to remain in the islands, only returning to Denarau Marina once a week. 

For transfers between Mamanuca Island resorts and Fiji Princess we use local operator RIBs or similar. These vessels are known for their comfort and sea-keeping qualities.
