We chose this cruise simply because we were in Fiji for our daughter's wedding, decided to take another week after the event and I couldn't decide on resorts. I thought a boutique cruise would get us the most Fiji possible in 7 days. I am so glad I couldn't decide on resorts because this cruise was amazing.
Port Denarau was OK. There is a bistro near the check in desk and I felt safe the entire time we waited. Embarkation was organized and easy.
The ship is well loved and care worn but clean and maintained. You actually feel that you are on a boat, not a floating city. The small size meant that you got to know the crew and your fellow passengers. It felt good to go on adventures and take meals with new friends, sort of like a summer camp experience.
Small but tasteful and adequate. Bed was comfortable, room was clean. A bit more storage would have been nice (a drawer or 2) but luggage fit under the bed and it all worked well.
Typical yachty type port. Nice bistro near check in desk.
