A joyous escape to a private island. The crew was friendly, courteous and helpful.
Absolutely first class. While not old in comparison to other sailing ships, the old lady had a class of its own and the crew made everything interesting and fun. Our time on the island was great and the BBQ was superb.
We both enjoyed every minute including when a member of crew lent me his sandals for wading from the landing craft to the shore as the broken coral was quite sharp my tender old feet. A great day out that ended too soon.
Fabulous cruise. Seven of my family members went for my 60th birthday.I was made to feel special from the 1st birthday wish as I got on the bus. Staff were friendly and attentive.Steven was especially helpful, finding extra bean bags etc to accommodate the 7 of us on the island. He also made sure we had snorkelling gear. Activities were great, some went scuba diving, others snorkelling and others the glass bottomed boat. Lunch was really nice and I was again made to feel special by my new Fijian family singing Happy Birthday to me, led by the talented Steven. After lunch my daughter and I had a relaxing massage. I had the best birthday ever, it was the highlight of our trip to Fiji. Do not hesitate to book this cruise.
We had a fantastic time with your tour. The crew were very nice and attentive. Loved the kava ceremony too. Would highly recommend Viator to my friends and family. The island was very relaxing and the young adults were kept busy with the activities. Thanks so much.
Excellent hospitality, beautiful people and a gorgeous private island. The best way that we could have started our holiday. 4yo loved it too, and the staff was great with him.
A fantastic day, packed with wonderful experiences. The crew couldn't have been more enthusiastic and friendly. This is the only cruise I've been on in Fiji but I'm very happy I chose this one.
We got changed from the tall ship to a catamaran cruise boat due to the weather - was upset about this as what not notified in advance and I had particularly wanted the tall ship - being upset did not last long however, as the crew of the ship were wonderful people and went out of their way to ensure we all enjoyed it - they went above and beyond in helping with our three year old, teaching her to snorkel and looking after her while my husband and I snorkelled. It rained on and off on the day of our cruise, but this did not stop it being a wonderful time - the island was beautiful, had undercover ares and when you're snorkelling your getting wet anyway so made no difference. Again, excellent trip and the most wonderful people.
This trip was superb, highly recommend. Took my husband and parents and I've backpacked the world. Didn't want too touristy but not too backpackey for parents and wanted to get out onto an island for first day in Fiji and back after 10 days there. This trip was really great value (other trips were hundreds of dollars more). The staff on this ship were incredible. All were locals and they were very Fijian (so warm and friendly. A male staff member picked up one of the crying children of a tourist and sang him lullabies to sleep. OMG, such amazing service). Oh, the lunch buffet was awesome. We could have had longer snorkelling but that's the only small improvement we'd make. The reef is ok, not the most impressive in Fiji, but the whole trip was fantastic and worth it. We'd do again. It's run by Captain Cook Cruises and clearly they know what they're doing. Booking through Viator was painless and easy. Would book thru them again.
Best cruise of all the cruises we've done the coral and fish are amazing and the staff are also amazing, caring and fun!! I would highly recommend this to anyone!! The island itself is amazing and pristine!

Beautiful Boat and Beautiful Crew!
Island was just gorgeous with lots of fun things to do and great entertainment, food and drinks!
Very good value for money. Time went far too quickly. Would recommend.
This cruise was in lieu of the Mammanuca Island Cruise. Viator made a huge mistake here taking my money and telling me the Mamanuca Cruise was confirmed. Was not until I contacted the operator to have some questions asked that Viator had failed to respond to was I advised that they had the ship in dry dock and would not be operating at the time Viator has booked and confirmed. The Tivua Cruise was great, the crew very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and I noticed how well they looked after the smaller children. Would definitely recommend this cruise but not Viator who after this first mishap again stuffed up big timewith another tour I had booked, paid for and had confirmed. So yes do the Tivua Cruise but book it when you get to Fiji through the operator and not Viator. Will never use Viator again.
The crew on this trip was so friendly and concerned for my friend who was having difficulty because of a bad hip. They were helpful and conciderate in every way. The food was wonderful and we had a great experience. thank you

This was absolutely tremendous. The crew the food , the entertainment , the whole cruise was a night to remember and I would recommend this Captain Cook Tour to anyone.
Including the greeter dressed up as Captain Cook. I would also thank Zahid the Ops Manager for his assistance.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip. All arrangements went smoothly, however a little disappointing that we could not sail without the motor, so did not get the full experience of sailing on a schooner. However it was a lovely way to spend our 46th wedding anniversary.
Many thanks for your excellent arrangements.
It was an adventurous trip! Half way, it started raining. We didn't prepare for rain! They should have kept Rain Coats on the Boat.
