The islands of Fiji are ideally suited to small-ship expedition cruising, and November 2023 will mark a new era of luxury cruise experiences never before seen in Fiji. Captain Cook Cruises Fiji has announced that the 110-passenger MS Caledonian Sky will be replacing the legendary Reef Endeavour as their flagship, with the inaugural cruise set to depart from Nadi on 11 November 2023.

In addition to Captain Cook’s classic, ever-popular, 3, 4 & 7 night Mamanuca & Yasawa Islands cruises, the new ship will allow an expanded focus on Discovery Cruises, which take travellers to far-flung and rarely-visited locations throughout the Fijian archipelago, such as the Lau group and Kadavu. Perhaps most exciting of all however, is the announcement that Caledonian Sky will undertake a series of 14-night Tongan and Samoan expeditions from Nadi. These new expeditions will showcase colourful reefs, pristine beaches, authentic island and cultural visits, and the opportunity to swim with whales during the whale migration in Tonga.
