THE renewed relationship between Blue Lagoon Cruises and Tamusua Village has brought back rich rewards for the people of the Yasawa-based village.

After a 22-year absence, the cruise company is once again bringing visitors to the rural community, allowing villagers to pocket earnings made from the sale of handicraft items and donations.

A subsidiary of South Sea Cruises, Blue Lagoon has been paying weekly visits to the village over the past four months. Passengers are exposed to village life, entertainment and treated to traditional food during the visit.

Former South Sea Cruises hospitality manager Elenoa Nimacere was instrumental in re-establishing ties with Tamusua and Nabukeru villages which were severed after a dispute between the company and the villages.
