Services thereafter are suspended until Fiji Government restrictions are lifted. South Sea Cruises may in discussions with our resort partners run some limited services to assist with staff transfers only after this but we ask all resort guests wanting to travel on South Sea Cruises that they to return to Port Denarau on Sunday 22nd of March at the latest.
