Bula – A Word That Will Stay With You Forever

Fijian Ladies

I truly love the South Pacific not only for its beauty, but for the people who make these islands shine. Fijians are so warm and friendly, no matter where you travel to! 

Everywhere you turn, you hear the words ….


This is the Fijian word for hello

English is spoken everywhere, but after a short while on the islands, you will soon find yourself saying {Bula,} to most everyone you meet! 😎

Well you certainly have that option as well!

⚓ Princess Cruise Line for one, offers wonderful 🌅 South Pacific cruises to Fiji departing from Sydney Australia.

As well, check out a post of mine on our fabulous 🛳 Royal Caribbean South Pacific Cruise we took a few seasons ago!

Without a doubt, the highlight of our holiday was our – 4 day/3 night all inclusive islands cruise with ⛴ Blue Lagoon cruises.  A wonderful island adventure aboard their comfortable and luxurious mini–cruisers.

You can cruise to unspoiled 🏝 tropical islands and ⚓ anchor in sheltered lagoons, where larger cruise ships can’t reach.  All, making for a truly unique island cruise adventure!

So you get to see and experience more of Fiji and the beautiful Yasawa Islands.

Yasawa Islands Fiji

The ships are much smaller than that of your typical major cruise ship, with fewer than 100 passengers, adding to the more personalized touch you will experience from crew and fellow passengers alike.

Choose from 3, 4 or 7 day cruises, all excellent adventures. Speaking from first hand experience, a Blue Lagoon Cruise is one not to be missed while on your Fiji Island holidays!
