$1.2m makeover for flagship vessel

BLUE Lagoon Cruises' flagship vessel Fiji Princess will undergo a $1.2million refurbishment starting this weekend.

The vessel arrived at Port Denarau from its last cruise last Friday.

Marine Tourism Management CEO Peter Duncan said the small boutique cruise ship would not operate from April 5 to 27.

"All interiors will be completely made over, and, paying tribute to the company's long maritime history, the theme is nautically inspired," Mr Duncan said.

"Blue Lagoon Cruises has recently come under our management and we have made several changes based on customer feedback, including brand new itineraries with a maximum of four hours cruising each day, more activities and a more personal experience of the Fijian culture.

"Fiji Princess also has a long history cruising Fiji's islands and it's time she had a rest and a makeover."

Mr Duncan said the refurbishment had been in the pipeline for a while and was a major investment by Blue Lagoon Cruises, not only into vessels but also in the products offered.
