Suva, Fiji cruise holidays

Discover some of Fiji's unique fauna and flora at the cultural centre on Orchid Island and visit Albert Park, where Charles Kingsford-Smith landed the 'Southern Cross' on his trans-Pacific flight in 1928.
Don't miss the municipal markets near the waterfront, which come to life on a Fridays and Saturdays with artefacts and handicrafts from Fijians throughout this idyllic island group.
