Where the Sky and Sea Meet

An earthly paradise of rare beauty. It is impossible to describe Fiji in any other way, a place far from reality, beautiful, iridescent ‒ a place where the sky and sea offer up dreamlike colors and atmospheres.

With your MSC World Cruise, you will have the opportunity to disembark in Suva, the capital of Viti Levu, the largest island of this beautiful archipelago. In town, you can start your tour by visiting the Fiji National Museum with its numerous archaeological finds and ancient local crafts on display. Other buildings of great interest are undoubtedly the majestic Sacred Heart Cathedral and the Suva City Library, both dating to the early twentieth century, but there are also many parks to admire that are home to beautiful local flora species. 
The capital city offers visitors many places where they can have fun and eat in fine restaurants enjoying typical local dishes such as fish marinated in coconut milk. Suva is undoubtedly a lively cultural and culinary center that will amaze you. Do not miss the chance to also spend a bit of time at the Municipal Market.
Thanks to your MSC Cruise, you can relax on the beautiful white sand beaches of Viti Levu, which jut into cobalt-blue waters brimming with colorful corals and diverse marine creatures. Not to be forgotten is the hinterland with its rain forests, steep mountain ranges, and deep canyons carved by rivers and waterfalls. The perfect place for an unforgettable excursion surrounded by unspoiled nature.

A few facts and figures: 332 islands, of which 110 are inhabited, and 500 islets.

The Republic of Fiji is an archipelago that is considered part of the Melanesian Islands in the Pacific Ocean, and is around 2,000 kilometres from New Zealand. The two main islands, the beautiful Viti Levu and Vanua Levu with an abundance of beaches and unspoiled vegetation, are where nearly all of the population resides. 
Tourists are fascinated by the polite manners, smiling faces and hospitality of the inhabitants of these islands. The waters, which gradually become different shades of blue as they move away from the coast, are home to a colourful coral reef. Viti Levu is a must when you come to Fiji: the island's interior, thick with vegetation and brightly coloured flowers, hides a number of rivers and breathtaking waterfalls
The Kula Eco Park, on the Coral Coast, is a place of great interest, as you can see mammals, birds, amphibians and fish living freely in their natural habitat: from boa constrictors to iguanas, turtles and bats. Before leaving Viti Levu, a mud bath at the Sabeto Hot Springs between Nadi and Lautoka is a must.
