AUSTRALIANS Jenny and Barrie O'Hara came to Fiji in 1989 and vowed they would return to the country that captivated their hearts.

It may be 25 years later but the couple has made that dream a reality.

The two were among the 2000 plus passengers on board the cruise vessel Oosterdam, which berthed at the Lautoka port yesterday.

Speaking to this newspaper, Mrs O'Hara said coming back to Fiji was a great experience.

"I just love the casualness here, people are so friendly and I love the music," she said.

"So far, we have been to Santos Island, Noumea, Mystery Islands and we will be headed to Suva and Pagopago in the coming days.

"It is a 30-day cruise so we hope to make the best of it."

Mrs O'Hara said Fiji was a very happy place where people lived in harmony.
