Antarctica21 only offers expeditions aboard small ships carrying a maximum of 71 guests. In Antarctica a regulation designed to manage environmental impact limits the number of visitors at any one location to no more than 100. So when larger ships visit, they must organize travellers in groups that take turns. Not with Antarctica21! Travel with us and you will spend time exploring, not waiting your turn to disembark the ship.
Experience the South Pacific
Blue Lagoon Cruises offer three itineraries, each taking you on a journey into Fiji’s spectacular Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. Sail to uninhabited tropical islands, anchor in private lagoons, spend countless hours lazing on golden beaches and swim, snorkel or dive in clear blue waters. A maximum 4 hours cruising per day ensures you spend more time exploring onshore and less time on the ship. Visit remote island villages, discover the ancient Fijian culture, sit down to an island feast set on a breathtakingly beautiful beach, swim with manta rays, learn how to cook traditional Fijian dishes, and stop off at the Sacred Islands and Sawa i lau Caves. Our small ship, Fiji Princess accommodates 68 passengers, meaning our cruises are always personal and friendly, complimented by our 100% Fijian crew. With over 60 years experience cruising the islands of Fiji, Blue Lagoon Cruises know how to show you the best of the South Pacific!

The size of our ship allows us to visit harbours other vessels cannot reach, meaning we can offer a broader range of destinations.

Have you ever dreamt of venturing off the beaten path, taking the road less traveled? Beyond Bora Bora and her overwater bungalows, lie within French Polynesia, some of the most remote islands in the world. Located nearly 1000 miles to the Northeast of Tahiti, The Marquesas Islands, known as “The Land of Men” by its inhabitants, is waiting to be discovered. Herman Melville wrote about it; Paul Gauguin painted of it; Jacques Brel sang of it. A paradise lost and now found with the new custom- built Aranui 5. This upscale vessel, part passenger, part freighter, is the main supply line to this archipelago, providing passage in great comfort, to areas inaccessible by conventional methods. For the past 30 years, the Aranui, with its Polynesian staff and crew, has been introducing these mystical islands to the outside world. You will discover what Tahiti looked like fifty years ago, visiting all 6 of the inhabited islands in the Marquesas, as well as Fakarava and Rangiroa in the Tuamotus and Bora Bora in the Society Islands on this 14 day cruise. Experience the richness of the Marquesas, from its people to its history and culture to its breathtaking scenery. This is soft adventure and cultural immersion at its best in French Polynesia. Step out of the mundane and discover the extraordinary on the journey of a lifetime on board Aranui 5.

The Pandaw experience is all about exploring remote and often hard-to-navigate rivers and coasts in specially-designed luxury small ships. Each ship, hand-crafted in brass and teak, is an object of beauty in itself. A Pandaw adventure is very different from that offered on an ocean-going cruise. The ships are small scale, and the atmosphere is informal, and very friendly.
