About Blue Lagoon Cruises

Blue Lagoon Cruises has one ship: the 16-year-old 68-passenger Fiji Princess. The onboard ambience is casual, the pace unhurried. Daily cruising time is no more than four hours, leaving plenty of time to enjoy water sports or simply relax on shore and do nothing at all.

Blue Lagoon Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Blue Lagoon cruise ships?

Blue Lagoon attracts a diverse passenger base, from honeymooners to active seniors. The majority hail from nearby Australia and New Zealand, followed by cruisers from the U.S., U.K. and Japan.

Children are allowed onboard only during family cruises, which depart during certain school holiday periods in the Southern Hemisphere.

Do I have to dress up on a Blue Lagoon cruise?

No. Dress is unquestionably casual. Pack your swimsuit, shorts, T-shirts, sunglasses, hat and flip-flops as well as a rash vest or similar outfit for snorkeling. Modest clothing is recommended for visits to the local villages, which means no tank tops, hats or swimsuits. At dinnertime, the emphasis is on informal resort wear. Take along a light jacket or sweater for cooler evenings.

Is everything free on Blue Lagoon cruises?

No, but all meals and shore excursions are included (except scuba diving, which does carry a fee). Beverages, such as filtered water, juices, tea and coffee, are also included.

Alcoholic drinks and massages incur extra charges, and in lieu of paying gratuity, there's an automatic donation to the line's chosen charity, Vinaka Fiji.

What are Blue Lagoon’s most popular activities?

With only four hours per day allotted to sailing, there's plenty of time for water fun and exploring the small islands the ship visits, with options that might include kayaking, fishing and bush walking. Only the most adventurous cruisers pick the 6 a.m. swims with the Fijian crew; most other passengers wait until after breakfast to hit the water. Among the more popular shore experiences are visiting a village school and taking part in the ancient yaqona (kava) ceremony, as well as seeing traditional songs and dances. A highlight of each trip is the magiti, a Fijian feast of pork, chicken, fish and vegetables wrapped in palm leaves and cooked in a pit called a lovo onshore.

Why go with Blue Lagoon?

  • Fiji cruises on yacht-like ships.
  • Three- to seven-night options.
  • Plenty of water sports and beach time.

Best for: Sun-loving travelers looking for an authentic Fijian experience on rarely visited islands

Not for: Vacationers just after a beach break and not interested in Fijian culture

Blue Lagoon Cruises Cruiser Reviews

Worst cruise we have ever been on

The food was absolutely terrible and after 3 days all we wanted to do was get off the boat (but of course couldn't).Many times there was not enough food put out and what was put out was terrible.Read More

Poor maintenance and Environmental Culture

I believe Blue Lagoon Cruises has a responsibility to do so for the environment, the use of the beach and to keep tourist happy.6 Finally the beach afternoon was set up well with refreshments on an Island most likely used weekly by the Fiji Princess passengers and staff.Read More

Very enjoyable

Overall we had a great time, but it could have been a wonderful experience if just a few things were amended by BLCruises.A few others are friendly but need to understand that guests are paying a premium for this cruise and expect great service all the time (not some of the time).Read More

Did not meet expectations but mostly made up for that with the unexpected

The cruise company’s private island was very nice for a full day, overnight and a few hours the next morning for jumping and diving off the back of the boat, a fish feed snorkel, a snorkel trip to the outer reef, more loungers and shade than passengers, a coconut husking/basket weaving/usages demonstration, lunch and dinner on shore with a night song and dance show from some native islanders, a fire pit preparation demo, and later everyone watched the crew dig up of the fire pit food for dinner.An UN expected item - the food was just poor to good and the long break between 12:30 lunch and 7:30 dinner time frequently left us hungry so we ate the few snacks we had brought along to fill in.Read More
