Makeover for Blue Lagoon’s Fiji Princess

Fiji Princess is undergoing a major refurbishment from stern to stern 
Blue Lagoon Cruises’ 68-passenger Fiji Princess is in Suva undergoing major refurbishment.

Blue Lagoon Cruises is a subsidiary of the South Sea Cruises Group which is owned by Fijian Holdings, a local public company.

Fiji Princess operates three-, four- and seven-night cruises to the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands from the Port Denarau Marina, a short distance from Nadi International Airport.

Refreshed cabins

As well an an overhaul of the engine room, the cabins are being made over with new bedding and furniture.

The dining room and lounge bar are also being updated.

Filtered water stations were installed in 2020 to make the ship single-use plastic-free. Now two permanent UV filtered water stations are being installed in public areas.

Improved Wi-Fi

The line was aware of the ‘patchy’ Wi-Fi reception in the islands and is boosting Vodafone and Digicel networks to be hard wired into all cabins.

Transfers to the ship will be provided and on sailing day the mini-bars in cabins will be stocked with soft drinks, beer and wine.

At just 179 feet/55mtrs in length she is able to navigate small coves and inlets that are inaccessible to bigger ships.

Fiji Princess will offer an abundance of water activities, including snorkelling, kayaking and paddleboarding and passengers will have the opportunity to experience local villages, traditional culture and Fijian feasts during their voyage.

January 5 return

She returns to service on January 1 under charter and will resume her normal schedule from January 5.
