Fijian Cruise – Aboard the Welcome Boat
Fiji is known for its paradisiacal landscape, brimming with tropical forests that spread across 322 islands, reaching pristine beaches filled with powdery white sand. The water shimmers azure, ranging from crystal clear to dark blue at its deepest depths. You arrive in Nadi early in the morning and continue to the city of Savusavu located on the island of Vanua Levu. The tropical paradise no longer fills your imagination but comes to life before your very eyes. Lush mountains slope downwards edging the azure bay. The scent of hibiscus flowers blends into the sea breeze.
Locals have bright, wide smiles and greet you with “Bula!” meaning more than just hello, but a friendly greeting that encompasses the welcoming spirit of the Fijian islands. Your private transfer, arranged by one of Zicasso's travel agents for Fiji, meets you at the airport and takes you to the harbor where your cruise ship awaits. The boat is 140 feet long with beams towering like the palm trees up to 33 feet tall. The staff offers a warm and endearing greeting, filled with excitement and a complimentary glass of champagne. Soft cushions line the upper deck and provide a fanciful panorama of the bay. In the afternoon, the boat weighs anchor. The ocean breeze turns into a moving wind that brushes your cheeks. The beauty of the islands is matched only by the luxury of your cruise.
