IF there was something that made Percy and Rosemary Sturt return to Fiji, it was the smiles and their love of the Fijian people.

The Australian couple first came last year on board the Sea Princess and since then they have made an effort to return.

Yesterday, they were among thousands of others who came on board the cruise ship which berthed at the Kings Wharf in Suva.

Mr Sturt, 89, said after their first visit, they vowed to return this year.

"It's is a very lovely place with lovely people and it has always been a pleasure to be here in Fiji, especially on board a cruise ship," he said.

"We enjoy the company of the local people and the smiling faces which greeted us early in the morning when we disembarked from the boat.

"The weather has been wonderful, a lovely cruise, wonderful and calm seas from the Gold Coast. We're looking forward to coming here again."

Mr Sturt said other passengers on board the cruise liner also fell in love with Fiji and they hoped to return soon.
