The Paul Gauguin cruise to the Cook and Society Islands was fantastic. The day hotel stays were great. Most of our tours were to see the local history of each island. The entire crew did a superb job to make such an enjoyable cruise. Thanks again for your great cruise expertise.

Fiji Weather and Climate
Fiji weather has a lot to do with the popularity of the nation as a vacation destination, and the weather here rarely moves out of the eighties in either direction. Year-round stable temperatures are the norm on Fiji, but precipitation levels can vary dramatically.
From November to March, the southerly trade winds bring wet weather and the occasional cyclone (hurricane) to the islands. Cyclone season is mostly confined to January and February, but only a couple of storms in any given decade cause more than minor damage. The dry season in Fiji runs from April through October.
Transportation Options in Fiji
Fiji cruises and ferries are a great way to tour outlying islands and to get from island to island. Other options for intra-island travel include commercial flights and small aircraft charters. Getting around on the bigger islands is generally accomplished by bus, taxi, or via hitchhiking. There are many local operators driving small, canopy-covered trucks that make runs between cities and other points of interest, charging modest rates (especially when compared to taxis).
Fiji’s Hotels & Resorts
Regardless of whether you are planning a Fiji vacation or your Fiji honeymoon, it pays to arrange your Fiji resorts and Fiji hotels well in advance of your intended arrival. There are many options when it comes to accommodations on the islands of Fiji, from modest cultural home stays with natives, to five-star all-inclusive ultra-private resorts.
The larger islands have the greatest range of accommodations available, and many of the smaller islands are actually privately held resorts that don’t allow visitors without a reservation. No worries -- we'll guide you and secure your arrangements.
