What are some places in Fiji on your bucket list?
I would love to do a cruise with South Sea Cruises, or stay at Yasawa Island Resort.

We have never been on a cruise.

I could think of no better place in the world to cruise than the Yasawa Islands.

My daughter was fortunate enough to visit Yasawa Island Resort.

It looks like paradise on earth.
