Princess yet to sail

Jone Kalouniviti
Friday, February 28, 2014

THE MV Mystique Princess needs a lot of work done before she is suitable to return to service.

Marine Tourism Management general manager Peter Duncan said the vessel, which is moored off the coast of Lautoka, has not been in operation since 2011.

He said it was their intention to pursue a sale by tender from interested parties in the near future.

"But the Princess requires a considerable amount of work before she is in a suitable condition to return to service."

During its heyday, the former flagship of the Blue Lagoon fleet — with a 100-seat air-conditioned sitting capacity — serviced the Mamanuca and Yasawa groups.

Marine Tourism Management oversees the operations of Denarau-based South Sea Cruises, Blue Lagoon Cruises and Awesome Adventures Fiji.
