We are just returned from our 7 Day Cruise on the Reef Endeavour...thoroughly enjoyable in every way, especially the staff. Food fresh and good, tours to villages, snorkelling etc..wonderful, though trek up 741' hill was challengingly steep...just a fun, relaxing, enjoyable holiday...did not come across one cranky Fijian!...they say they are a people who enjoy the day unlike most if us who rush through it....go and go soon.
7 Oct 2014

It was a fantastic trip. A bigger boat would have been less personal. We didnt make it to lunch one day and a steward remembers who we were and brought us both a plate. Very thoughtful.

Peter, SA 
Completed the 3 night cruise last month on the Reef Endeavour and enjoyed every minute of it. The crew was excellent and seemed to love what they were doing, they remember your name, they joke around with you, they treat you as one of them. To see the crew so happy must mean that they love their job and workplace! Of course who would not like their workplace, it is fantastic! Well done Captain Cook Cruises, we will be back next year and do the other 4 night cruise.

15 July 2014
Maria, NSW 
This was quite simply one of the best holidays we have had. We are all experienced travellers and have been on all sorts of cruises, both expensive and cheap. This was in the middle price wise. A small ship with only 77 passengers and all Fijian crew. EVERYONE was so pleasant and good humoured. Good food and fantastic destinations. Swimming and snorkelling twice a day, plus glass bottom boat and kayaks. everything was thrown in except for drinks! New Cruise Director did an excellent job, and there were lots of extra, and special activities thrown in, including a dawn hike up a mountain to see the sunrise, visits to schools on remote islands, a visit to a chief's house, a couple of cultural shos on the islands, and even a crew show which beat everything else. Overall, a holiday to remember and a good time was had by all. Passengers ranged from children (about 15 in all who were kept entertained by the crew and had a ball) to an awesome 92 year old lady who managed to keep up with the best of us!
14 July 2014
The crew really make the cruise. They are a fabulous bunch!
