what a dissapointment

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Port Denarau

My husband and I had cruised with Blue Lagoon some years ago when it was a small friendly local company operating out of Latouka. Now the whole atmosphere is so different.They have lost the common touch and are only interested in making money.

The crew are still friendly but it is obvious all work on auto pilot. The cabins are very small and only allow access to one side of the bed and the toilets frequently do not flush when needed but maybe up to twenty mins later.

Food is okay but only cheap cafe quality and certainly not up to cruise ship standard.Lots of mysteries hidden under sauces. and eggs at breakfast were very poor. Scrambled eggs were very like trying to eat tough bits of cardboard.

The cabins are air conditioned but not the public areas. The dinning room is the only area with fans. Maybe the thinking is -if the bar is very hot more drinks will be purchased?

Our deal included some nights in a top Fiji hotel which more than made up for More the cruise.

I will never recommend this company to anyone. and we have certainly learnt our lesson.

Remember the good times and don' try to replicate them . Less
