Save 30% on 7 nights Captain Cook Fijian Dateline Cruise

Captain Cook Cruises is celebrating its 40th Birthday in 2010 with a massive sale offering up to 30% off Fiji Northern Dateline cruises.

The sale is valid to 30 August 2010 and valid for travel until 31st March 2011. As an extra bonus for families a separate children's bunk cabin is available at no additional charge with payment of two or more children 3-17 years with accompanying parents or guardians.

The Northern Fiji Dateline Discovery Cruise is an amazing cruise that reveals the unique history, art and culture of the Northern Fiji Islands and allows passengers the ultimate experience of standing' on the International Dateline.

Developed after months of extensive research and searching for secluded and exclusive locations, passengers are taken beyond the Yasawa Islands to very remote and exotic tropical Fijian islands.

Day trips include the historic island of Ovalau which still features 19th Century colonial architecture and waterfront promenades from colonial rule, the Bouma Waterfall lagoon on Taveuni Island, the extinct volcanic crater, hot springs and thriving markets on Savusavu, a special choral church service at Waiyevo and of course the 180th Meridian – the arbitrary Dateline between today and tomorrow on Taveuni Island.

There is plenty of swimming, snorkelling and diving off picturesque islands including Tivua, Nanuyakoto, Savusavu Bay, Nananu-I-ra and Manava Island.

One of the most endearing features of this cruise is the generous welcome from Fijian village locals living on islands rarely visited by tourists.  Passengers will be given the extraordinary opportunity to experience village life and partake in a kava ceremony, enjoy a traditional 'lovo" (earth oven) feast and dance to the drum of the meke (dance).

The 7 night Northern Fijian Dateline Cruise package departs in 2010 on 3rd August, 7th September, 5th October and 2nd November and is priced from $1749 per person twin share, normally from $2499.

Price includes shipboard accommodation, all meals, guided village and island tours, glass bottom boat excursions, on board entertainment and use of the ship's facilities.
