Captain Cook Cruises Fiji’s announcement of the arrival of small ship MS Caledonian Sky is an exciting new development for Fiji Tourism. The vessel will replace the MV Reef Endeavour and bring an unprecedented level of luxury expedition to Fiji, says Allison Haworth West, Executive Chairman of Captain Cook Cruises Fiji.

MS Caledonian Sky offers a new standard of cruising in Fiji. Her arrival will see an expansion in our small ship expedition cruise programs and will allow us to share even more exquisite remote locations in elegant comfort,” West said.

The Caledonian Sky offers 57 suites, providing accommodation for 114 passengers. West highlights that the ship’s introduction will not only enhance onboard facilities and experiences but also unveil previously unexplored itineraries and locations within Fiji.

The forthcoming arrival of the Caledonian Sky in November signifies a substantial investment for both Captain Cook Cruises Fiji and the entire industry. This strategic move showcases the company’s dedication to delivering exceptional experiences to their guests and raising the bar for luxury cruising in Fiji.

The Caledonian Sky will continue sailing for its current operation APT during the remainder of the 2023 season in the Kimberley region. Starting from November 11, it will be operated by Captain Cook Cruises Fiji. CEO of APT Travel Group David Cox said travellers in the South Pacific region will be thrilled to experience the vessel, as APT has enjoyed showcasing Australia and the Kimberley coastline to their guests on the Caledonian Sky.

This exciting development was announced at Fiji Tourism Expo 2023, which was held at the Sheraton Resort’s Denarau Island Convention Centre. Viliame Gavoka, Fiji’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism and Aviation, described the arrival of the Caledonian Sky as the beginning of a new era of high-end cruise experiences in Fiji. He said Captain Cook Cruises Fiji will extend its itineraries to include some of the most remote and stunning parts of Fiji, as well as destinations in Tonga and Samoa.

Building on their successful small ship expedition experiences in Fiji’s remote North, Lau, Yasawas, and Mamanucas islands, the company will introduce new itineraries: seven-night voyages to Northern Lau and Southern Lau regions; 14-night journeys through the Lau islands to Tonga and Samoa. Guests’ experiences will be enhanced by an expansion of the onboard expedition team of marine biologists and cultural experts.

Captain Cook Cruises was founded by Capt. Trevor and Geraldine Haworth in Sydney on Australia Day in 1970. In 2011, Captain Cook Cruises was sold to Adelaide based SeaLink Travel Group, with the exception of the Fiji operation. The company also operates Day Sails to their Tivua Private Island plus Sunset Dinner Cruises.
