When is the best time to cruise to Fiji?

Fiji is blessed with a tropical climate that is ideal for year-round cruising. May and October are our favorite months to travel because the weather is great and you’ll be visiting slightly outside the peak season. If your dates are flexible, here are some other factors to consider to help you plan your cruise.

  • Peak season. December to January and June to September are the most popular times to visit Fiji. These months coincide with Australia and New Zealand’s school holidays so you can also expect an increase in families traveling.
  • Key festivals and events. Fiji has a big multicultural community which means lots of festivals and events for you to enjoy. Some of the top ones to look out for are Holi, the Hibiscus Festival, Diwali, Fiji Day and the South Indian Fire Walking Festival.
  • Looking to save some money? The off-peak season is between November and late March. This coincides with the hurricane season — so rain is a near certainty — and it is also the hottest time of the year.

Still interested? You might be able to save on activities and excursions plus hotels if you’re doing a one-way cruise. Do consider cruise travel insurance if you’re planning to travel during the low season to avoid any disappointments.

What are the must-do cruise excursions in Fiji?

It can be tempting to simply pick the nearest beach and stake your claim for the day but once you’re willing to venture a bit further inland, here are some of our top picks for Fiji excursions.

  • Thermal mud pool, Port Denarau. Take a trip to Sabeto Valley’s thermal springs to treat yourself with a therapeutic and relaxing mud bath.
  • Vuadomo Village and Waterfall, Savusavu. Embrace regional culture and experience village life with a local ceremony followed by a short hike and swim in the nearby waterfall.
  • Tau Cave and zipline tour, Lautoka. Soar above the treetops as you make your way through ziplines and rappelling obstacles before you journey underground to explore fascinating limestone caves.
  • Snorkeling, Dravuni Island. Escape the heat and head to the Astrolabe Reef for a chance to spot seahorses and stingrays among other marine creatures.
  • Jewel of Fiji, Suva. A great all-rounder where you learn about the rich culture and history while you explore the island during a variety of adventure activities. These include a ride in a longboat canoe, a local village tour with lunch and kava ceremony and an invigorating swim in a waterfall.

Bottom line

A paradise for foodies, nature lovers and culture vultures alike, set your sights on Fiji and you won’t regret it. Hit up our top cruise deals to help keep costs down on your next holiday.
