FIJI was among many destinations for tourists from Europe onboard the cruise liner MV Costa Deliziosa which berthed at the Kings Wharf in Suva yesterday.

The more than 1000 people on board the liner with origins from Italy paid a little over $40,000 to be part of the 100 day cruise around the world.

Before sailing to Fiji, the cruise liner visited the capital of American Samoa, Pagopago.

Norway nationals Herald Holgersen, 69, and his wife Randi who were travelling with their friends Inge Hansen, 67, and his wife Wenche Hansen, 66, took time away from the activities on the vessel to shop for souvenirs for their loved ones.

"The trip to Fiji took two days when we left Pagopago but because we were crossing the dateline it took us only one day," a smiling Mr Holgersen joked.

For the Holgersens and Hansens the trip to Fiji was their first and they were blessed with fine weather.
