Changes in the Air for Captain Cook Cruises
Captain Cook Cruises is freshening up its fleet, launching new cruises and welcoming special guests onboard, as part of a raft of special developments in 2013.
The Murray Princess paddlewheeler will receive a refurbishment over the next 12 to 18 months, with the one million dollar work including a makeover of her cabins "to bring the ship up to a more contemporary standard and style," the cruise line said.
Other changes to look forward to include a special 4 night foodies voyage, accompanied by Masterchef winner Julie Goodwin, who will present a series of cooking demonstrations and talks for guests.
In Fiji, Captain Cook is set to debut a brand new 11 night itinerary to Lau this year, with the inaugural departure (which has completely sold out already) to take place on 22 October.
The cruise will take guests to Yanuca Island, Savusavu Bay and Kadavu, and will provide scenic cruising through the Bay of Islands and the central Lau Group (passing Islands such as Lakeba, Oneata, Komo, Namuka-i-Lau and Yagasa), providing plenty of kayaking; river tubing; mountain biking; swimming; snorkelling and hiking opportunities, as well as the chance to visit volcanoes, schools and churches and enjoy a lovo feast.
Reef Endeavour, the Captain's Fijian ship, has already had a million dollar refurbishment, including an update to the furnishings, public areas and carpets, as well as the addition of some interconnecting family rooms. The ship also now has free-of-charge Wi-Fi.
And, for guests who truly want to escape from it all, from mid-October to the end of November, Reef Endeavour will welcome a Shaolin monk onboard to lead guests in meditation.
