Sail Date: Mar 2017

We chose this cruise on the recommendation of family who did the cruise, "Majestic Princess" in 96/97. The compelling factor was the number of passengers (70) capacity we had 58. We went in March 2017 in the wet season so we had very high humidity, sunshine, rain. We considered that we had a true Fiji experience staying at a resort in a byre (reviewed on TripAdvisor) prior to boarding and after disembarking and doing two half day tours. Our cabin was on the same deck as the Lounge Bar and as we are mobile senior citizens this was ideal for more than one reason. The whole crew and those we did not see were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble, The seas were calm except for one day when we steamed out to the last island but it was nothing and not constant only when we were out in open water and not on the lee side of the hundreds of islands that make up the wonderful country of Fiji and especially the 20 or so that make up the Yasawa Island group.

Our cabin was air-conditioned perhaps a little too well as each time we left it glasses, video recorders, cameras and the like immediately fogged up and cameras took almost an hour to be useable, small concern. Having done a couple of earlier cruises on bigger ships we did not expect a cabin any larger than it was but the shower took a little bit of working out, but again you are aboard ship. If you could not get out of bed for breakfast, 10.00am was morning tea. The dining area one deck below us was absolutely magical perhaps it was the very fact that the weather was warm and very humid as it would in the wet season and one had night shows of magnificent lightening flicking across the sky.

If you are travelers who want to have their day full of busy activities forget it, you do as much as you want and as little as you want, but who in the South Pacific would want to stay onboard as great as it was instead of getting ashore in landing craft which were expertly driven by both the guys and the gals that made up the Fiji crew.

Cabin Review

Cabin Orchid Cabin

Cabin was very adequate and we strongly suggest that for the cruise pack two piece bathers x 7, sulu by 7 and a suitable outfit men and ladies to encompass the village dress atire of no hats, do not put glasses on ones head, do not tousle the beautiful kids hair, shoulders covered as well as knees. Do not pack evening clothes as you can go to dinner in your sulu worn as a cover-up. Bathroom took some working out as there is no shower curtain which in a way makes sense as who wants a shower curtain sticking to ones body. Inginuity is the keyword. If not shower in bathers on the deck that has the pool. Cabin was well serviced as well as the mini bar.
