Captain Cook Cruises, who are based at Denarau in Nadi, are running four 7 Night Colonial Fiji Discovery Cruises this year on the MV Reef Endeavour. This cruise leaves Nadi and the next morning arrives in Levuka. It then takes another six nights to cruise back to Nadi.
So why not combine a cruise one way and conventional transport the other.
