Experience Fiji with Captain Cook Cruises

Experience the real Fiji on Captain Cook Cruises’ small discovery cruise ship – the MV Reef Endeavour.
Venturing where larger ships can’t go, you’ll unearth Fiji’s natural beauty and unique culture with the best in the business.
Get to know
Accommodating just 130 guests, the Reef Endeavour is a small cruise ship with a big personality. You’ll find all of the comforts of a large cruise ship onboard: freshwater swimming pool, jacuzzi, mini gym, sun deck, day spa, cocktail bar, kids’ club, fully air-conditioned dining room and even a library.
Everything cooked on the Reef Endeavour is prepared fresh from local and imported produce – whether an alfresco luncheon, a casual barbecue or à la carte dinner – and cultural onboard entertainment adds a little extra Fijian flavour.
Using their 40 years’ small-ship cruising experience, Captain Cook Cruises Fiji travels to 90 of the 330 islands in the Fiji group. Departing Port Denarau, you can sail to Mamanuca and Yasawa Island or the remote Lau Islands and Kadavu, or on themed itineraries that take in the country’s colonial history and extraordinary culture. Excursions to remote villages promise encounters with local Fijians, village schoolchildren and traditional experiences such as the sevusevu ceremony with meke (singing and dancing) and a lovo feast, or make friends underwater with two scheduled dives in different locations each day.
If a shorter cruise is more your style, take a day trip to the coral atoll of Tivua, on the Tivua Island Day Cruise, or a sunset dinner cruise aboard a sailing catamaran.
