Why small ship cruising is the best way to see Fiji

The reasons to explore Fiji’s islands onboard a small cruise ship are stacking up.

Cruise ships are returning to ports around the world and it’s okay to feel nervous about stepping aboard one as you navigate pandemic travel. However, if the call to visit foreign shores is irresistible, take comfort in the option of small-ship cruising.

On smaller vessels there are fewer passengers, streamlined hygiene protocols and you can stick to one country (and one set of COVID rules). To “test the waters”, I board Captain Cook Cruises’ MV Reef Endeavour to explore Fiji’s remote north, and I’m happy to report it was all smooth sailing.
