The four decks are connected by two staircases located on either side of the ship. Smoking is only allowed in designated outdoor areas. The public areas are located on the Hibiscus Deck and the top-most Sun Deck.
The dining area, bar, lounge and library are located on Hibiscus. This area has been completed refurbished, and the decor is tropical and features cushioned rattan arm chairs, tapa print fabric wall decorations and wood-paneled walls. The library is completely new and has a small collection of books (enough for these short cruises where most of the time is spent in the water or on land exploring the islands). The ship's hallways are lined with handsome prints with botanical and nautical themes.
The spacious lounge bar/library is the place to be in the evenings. During the day, it is a popular venue for reading, playing cards and relaxing. At night, this is where the entertainment and dancing takes place.
Each deck offers outdoor areas ideal for enjoying the sun on new loungers. There's even a wraparound deck, which enables passengers to walk the full way around the ship. Sun loungers are also located at the stern. The top-level Sun Deck offers great views and features a shaded bar, sun loungers and tables.
In the foyer are the reception desk and boutique, which offers a good selection of practical items like sunglasses, sunscreen, batteries and disposable underwater cameras, as well as a Fiji cookbook and bestselling paperbacks. The captain charts the ship's course on a souvenir Yasawas map, available for sale, and there are a number of Blue Lagoon logo items to purchase including a sun-protective rash guard for snorkeling.
There's also a self-service laundry area on the saloon deck portside forward, with two washing machines and dryers. Laundry soap is available at reception.
