THE LUXURY Itineraries for Blue Lagoon Cruises maximize Fijis remote appeal. Passengers spend only a few hours each day at sea aboard the 70-passenger Fiji Princess, and the rest anchored in isolated lagoons. Enroute to the Yasawa Islands, the six-night Gold Club sailing includes visits to traditional Fijian villages where guests are greeted with an ancient welcoming ceremony. Back on deck, tropically inflected dinners are accompanied by live island music. The trip fi nishes
up with a visit to the private island of Nanuya Lailai, where guests can snorkel, kayak, or simply enjoy the secluded oasis.
THE VALUE Shermans Travel readers will save 30 percent on all three- to six-night itineraries through April 30 booked by March 15. With the discount, the price for the six-night Gold Club cruise starts at $2,171 a person.
THE CATCH Airfare to Fiji, which runs at least $1,100 round-trip from the West Coast or $1,400 from the East Coast, is not included.
