Grace Prasad Shipping & Landlords new vessel, “The Return of Taveuni Princess II” is back on the Taveuni and Natuvu route.

The company chief executive officer (CEO) Captain Sonia Lata who also captains the new vessel said they had started their operation after a two week break.

“We took a break after the Lomaiviti Princess IV owned by Goundar Shipping Limited offered free trips for passengers using the route,” she said.

“I cannot afford to offer free trips.”

Now she said they had started not only with their new vessel but also with a new direct express bus to and from Natuvu (Buca Bay) Savusavu and Labasa.

She said the advantage they had on Goundar Shipping Limited was that their departure time never changed but for the Lomaiviti Princess  IV to had to wait for all the vehicles to arrive before departure.

Because the departure never changed, the passengers from Taveuni to Labasa arrived at the Babasiga Town at 1.30pm.

Captain Lata said for the company, their service to the passengers was vital.

Everyday their vessel leaves Taveuni’s ‘Korean Wharf’ at 8am (boarding at 7.30am) and arrives at Natuvu on Vanua Levu at 9am. It returns to Taveuni at 9.30am. Express buses leave Labasa (bus/ferry ticket $35) at 4.30am and Savusavu (bus/ferry ticket $25) at 7am and arrive at Natuvu with plenty of time before the ferry departs.

To purchase tickets in Savusavu, buy tickets at Ravin’s (hole in the wall restaurant on the main drag); in Labasa, get them at the Gifts & Fashion shop on Nasekula Rd.
