Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed the 7 night cruise. The ship had everything we could want, the dining was excellent, service exceptional and daily shore excursions beautiful. By far the highlight for all of us were the Fijian people and the excellent crew.

Steve, NSW  
The 7 day cruise surpassed all our expectations. We never felt ship bound with the great variety of shore and water activities. Above everything however the hospitality from the outstanding crew will be our fondest memory.

Completed the 3 night cruise last month on the Reef Endeavour and enjoyed every minute of it. The crew was excellent and seemed to love what they were doing, they remember your name, they joke around with you, they treat you as one of them. To see the crew so happy must mean that they love their job and workplace! Of course who would not like their workplace, it is fantastic! Well done Captain Cook Cruises, we will be back next year and do the other 4 night cruise.

Maria, NSW 
This was quite simply one of the best holidays we have had. We are all experienced travellers and have been on all sorts of cruises, both expensive and cheap. This was in the middle price wise. A small ship with only 77 passengers and all Fijian crew. EVERYONE was so pleasant and good humoured. Good food and fantastic destinations. Swimming and snorkelling twice a day, plus glass bottom boat and kayaks. everything was thrown in except for drinks! New Cruise Director did an excellent job, and there were lots of extra, and special activities thrown in, including a dawn hike up a mountain to see the sunrise, visits to schools on remote islands, a visit to a chief's house, a couple of cultural shos on the islands, and even a crew show which beat everything else. Overall, a holiday to remember and a good time was had by all. Passengers ranged from children (about 15 in all who were kept entertained by the crew and had a ball) to an awesome 92 year old lady who managed to keep up with the best of us!
14 July 2014

We enjoyed the 7 day Yasawa Island Christmas cruise as a family of 5 adults. The staff was fabulous - knowledgeable and friendly, and seemed to delight in making us feel like part of the family. They were attentive and efficient and Sefo, in particular, had an amazing memory for names. The crew was exceptionally good with children, young and old. This was an awesome experience which we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

WorldTraveler, USA 
We enjoyed a 7 day cruise of the Yasawa islands for the Christmas holiday. Since the ship was only half full (63 passengers), we had a lot of attention by the crew and got to know everyone. The snorkeling/diving was professionally monitored and offered breathtaking coral viewing. Meals were served in the dining room and were good with plenty of choices. If I had any complaints it would be the facilities in the cabin. The water, both hot and cold, left the faucet brown. It was safe for drinking, but was so brackish we opted for bottled water. There was also an odor from the toilet throughout the trip. Even so, this is a fantastic trip and well worth the inconvenience.

My wife Janine and Myself Roger, went on the MV Reef Endeavour, check in Tuesday 19th of November and checked out on Tuesday 26th. We were also joined by my sister Claudette, and brother in law  Douglas. We really enjoyed the cruise, such a nice little ship, able to approach the islands,  not only for the scenery, but also for the tenders to often go ashores, for us to visit, snorkel, lovo, etc....I must also say that the crew from the captain, officers, to the tenders drivers, Cabin's service/maintenance, Bar attendants, and meals services, where really not only friendly but also very efficient, and we made good friends with all of them. We will not forget this cruise, and we are already thinking of coming back in the first semester of 2014.........................

The crew were excellent and nothing was a problem. Were very friendly.

Thank you for making a dream come true.We had a wonderful and Educational cruise. Educational because Jioji – the marine Biologist had two interesting sessions, and told us of things we never knew about, the world under the sea. The visits ashore was special. Druadrua village was the best with the school kids presentations and mekes. The Officers and crew went out of their way to make our cruise enjoyable and safe. They are all team players. The meals were perfect. The cabins well presented. The ship was awesome – maintenance being carried out daily. Had the opportunity to visit the bridge a number of times – Harvey, Serevi, Joe and the boys are wonderful, and professional people. Engineers are sometimes shy people – We were impressed at the Chief Engineers joining in with the meke group on the last night – That was special. We have already passed our praises on to the local community here in pacific harbour, about the cruise. We would love to do it again sometime in the future and bring along the grandkids.

Thank you for your email, just a short note to thank everyone onboard the Reef Endeavour for looking after us the two days we were on the cruise. We had a fabulous time and the special welcome that Fiji gave will live long in the memory, a truly wonderful place with some of the most hospitable people on earth. The customer service on board was the highest level I have seen for a long time, the pride you guys take to make sure your customers enjoy themselves was brilliant. A brilliant trip, thank you for everything

Kasey, QLD 
The food is great, the tours to the islands were unbelievable. These people in FIJI and surrounding islands, really are the lucky ones. We were taken somewhere both morning and afternoon. Whether it be a deserted beach, a village, local village church, local school etc, we enjoyed the trip. Every stopover, you have the option of snorkelling tour, scuba diving, relaxing on the beach, kayaking or if your boring, staying on the boat.. The last night was soo much fun, drinking kava with all the staff and dancing. Sefo the bar tender, really made our cruise enjoyable.. What a loveable character... I would recommend this cruise for that relaxed holiday, whilst also touring and seeing different places.

Toni. ACT
Spent 11 days on the Reef Endeavour. This is our third cruise and it was just as fantastic as our previous trips. I would highly recommend this for all ages instead of a resort stay. You visit a different place every day and have ample opportunities to relax or to swim, snorkel, sightsee and participate in a wide variety of authentic Fijian experiences. A big plus of travelling with captain cook cruises are the friendly and helpful staff. Everyone from check in thru to the captain makes you welcome and ensures an enjoyable experience. My only advice... Go with the flow and get to know the staff and you (like us) will return... 
08 Oct 2013
David, Aust 
What a fabulous trip we had - the crew were fantastic and we made some great new friends - can't wait to come back any do it again. Thanks so much Captain Cook Cruises Fiji! 
23 Sept 2013
We toured the Islands on the Reef Endeavour for four days and truly was a memorable experience that I will carry with me for years to come. from the moment we checked in to the moment we left the ship our experience was the best. The crew became our family and we fell in love with them, their kind heart, hospitality and most of all their carrying for all of us. The food and deserts were outstanding, we kept eating their deserts like hungry tigers.We visited many islands, beautiful beaches, villages , schools and corral reef. I cant find the right words to express my appreciation for the crew, I left them feeling homesick and wanting to go back. what an experience....the best thing on fees for wi-fi, not like the most expensive resorts that charge you $20 a day....Thank you Captain Cook for the wonderful memories.

Marilyn, NSW 

We cruised on the Reef Endeavour from the 9th Sept a very relaxing way to see the islands our first visit to Fiji. Visits to the villages and schools were a highlight. Snorkelled for the first time great. All the staff were so helpful it was hard to say goodbye you felt like part of the family.  We met some wonderful fellow passengers also. The ship is a lot different to the ships we have cruised on but go with the experience and you will have one of the best holidays ever.

My daughter, Sandi, and I have just gotten back home after the most wonderful holiday in Fiji, the highlight was our 7 day cruise on the Reef Endeavour. We left Port Denarau on 27/8/13 and spent the best 7 days with a wonderful Captain and crew.  The cruise itself was great but adding the mix of a fantastic crew to it made it very special.We were looked after as we were part of their big family.I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our cruise and we will definitely be telling everyone to go and, of course, as soon as we can we will be going again.

Our family of 6 had an AMAZING time aboard the Reef Endeavour in August 2013. Our children are aged 13, 12, 8 & 5 and all had a brilliant time from the moment we stepped aboard. The meals were lovely and the food plentiful. The kids were offered the opportunity at dinner time to have a kids meal and then retreat for supervised games/movies or they were very welcome to eat with the adults. We liked the fact that we were given this option and the kids enjoyed it too. There were 2 things that made this trip unforgettable. The first was the beautiful scenery and island visits. Every day we stopped at a different place (or two) to snorkel, play on the beach, visit schools and villages. The views from the ship each day were nothing short of spectacular and the sunsets were gorgeous. The snorkelling was amazing and we felt so safe at all times - our 5 year old was in her element! The second brilliant thing about this trip were the people. The crew were great! Nothing was too much trouble. Sefu on the bar was a HUGE hit with our teens. They loved chatting with him about music and our youngest loved the ice-cream sundaes! We loved hearing Wise sing each day - and the night time entertainment was lots of fun. Every member of the crew made our trip very special.

My husband and i celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in Fiji, and the highlight was our vow renewal ceremony orchestrated by Eroni, the Hospitality Manager on the Reef Endeavor. The ceremony surpassed our expectations, and we will cherish all aspects from the beautiful hymns to the idyllic island to the hospitable crew and to the other special touches. Eroni and the rest of the crew did an incredible job in making our first 20th anniversary so memorable and touching. This was our first cruise, and we were extremely impressed. We will always fondly remember our stay on the Reef Endeavor.

My brother and I had a fabulous time on board the Reef Endeavor doing their 7 day Northern cruise to Ovalau, Taveuni and Vanua Levu. Couldn't ask for better service from the crew, and Captain Harvey and Chief Engineer Harrold treated us like family. I can see why the crew are so friendly and accommodating; they're just following the lead of their captain and chief engineer. We will definitely be back again and will highly recommend this cruise to friends and family.  We're taking home fond and wonderful memories of this week on the Reef Endeavor.

I recently returned from the 7 night culture cruise around the islands. Not having previously cruised and as a single traveller I was somewhat apprehensive. I had no need to be. The whole seven days were absolutely fabulous. The hardest decision I had to make was which cocktail to choose from the drinks menu! Guests do need to be aware that this is a small ship and only accommodates 100+ guests so they should not expect Cunard style service and accommodation. The joy of this style of cruising so I found was the personalised service, the care and warmth of the crew and the sharing of the Fijian life and culture.

I recently went on the 7 night Northern Fiji Cruise and had one of the best times in my life. From the moment I boarded to the moment I disembarked it was magical. The sunset that first night was incredible and we saw many more magnificent sunsets. The islands we visited were remarkable in their beauty and the people were so welcoming and friendly. I learnt a lot about the different cultures in Fiji through their dance and hospitality. The snorkelling was brilliant and I saw so many colourful fish and coral. And I even had the opportunity to try scuba diving, thanks to the wonderful dive master Lionel.  The crew of the Reef Endeavour  went out of their way to make us feel valued and like part of a big family. Special thanks to Mere who served the table I was on, a collection of passengers who have become life long friends, we had so much fun at meal times. Oh and the three meals a day were fantastic and healthy, never eaten so much ! The ship itself was perfect, loved the design of it and my cabin was surprisingly big and comfortable for D deck.

We went on the 7 day Cultural Cruise on the Reef  Endeavour in July/August, and had a wonderful time. It was easy, no fuss. Everything went smoothly, the crew were so friendly and helpful.  The snorkelling and swimming outstanding. The visits to the villages, school, and church were a highlight. The people are just beautiful. We will definately be back, in fact, we seriously considered doing the next cruise before we even disembarked.

It was our first Cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to all the staff that makes this small medium size cruise boat a fantastic way to visit the stunning South Yasawas islands. We did 3 nights but are already thinking about doing another one for 7 nights. Thank you Eroni, Iva, Sefu, Wise, Vinnie, George, Superman and Joe for a memorable holiday. Highly recommended, with lots of activities included that you can choose to participate to or not. Thank you :)

Great time and a great crew, one staff member even remembered us from a tour 5 years ago.The cruise covers island visits and snorkeling/diving/beaches so a bit of luck with weather goes a long way, we were lucky and had good , though not very hot, weather all trip, spoilt slightly by a bit of wind on the last day which spoilt the snorkeling due to choppy seas. The island visits were terrific and seeing the similarities and differences between the native Fijian, the Ocean Islanders and the Ellis Islanders was extremely good, I only wished I had a video camera to record the shows that were put on as the dancing and singing was beyond belief.

Had a great time on our 4 night Yasawa islands cruise. the boat is comfortable and a nice size. staff lovely and friendly.The highlight was stunning scenery and twice daily trips to islands and various aquamarine coves for superb swimming and snorkelling. loved the village visits also. The traditional lovo feast was fun and the visit to the school delightful. Have done two Meditteranean cruises on mega ships and have loved them, but this was something special and I would love to do it again. I feel we were lucky to see the beauty of this area from the comfort of our little floating hotel.

The Reef Endeavour was a fantastic cruise and 99% of that was because of its fantastic crew. Wonderful hot showers.
