We are amazed that no review on Captain Cook Cruises has been posted on Cruise Critic. They cruise the Fiji islands exclusively and operate a very nice ship, Reef Endeavour, that can handle 120 passengers. I speaking with the Captain and the Hospitality Manager we were informed that the average sailing has about 60 passengers, so that provides for lots of room for everyone both on the ship and the tender which holds about 50.
We booked the seven day cruise which is made up of a four night segment to the Yasawa Islands and a three night segment to the Mamanuca Islands. Between the two segments, the ship returns to Port Denarau Marina and offloads some passengers and adds new ones. They run this schedule for three weeks in each month. There are other voyages to outer islands throughout the year on the fourth week. It visits places like the setting for the movies, Blue Lagoon and Castaway. It also goes to the Sacred Islands – a special snorkel location that has virtually pristine corals.
Great room with a clear view. Very little noise and with the door open the afternoon breezes were great.
