CAPTAIN Cook Cruises has been awarded the Excellence Award in Fiji Experience for their Northern Discovery Cultural and Heritage Cruises at the annual AON Excellence in Tourism Awards 2012.

Captain Cook Cruises Fiji managing director Semi Koroilavesau said: "I personally believe that the crew of Reef Endeavour are the ones who won this award for the company. Therefore it is only fitting that the master, the officers and crew must be congratulated for the effort and great work that contributed to the success and subsequent award."

Captain Cook Cruises only launched the seven nights Discovery Cultural Cruise, in June 2011 and it was the first ever Fiji cruise to circumnavigate Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest Island giving passengers the ultimate chance to discover and experience four distinctive Fijian cultures, Ellice Islanders (Polynesians), Banabans (Micronesia), Fijian and Indians visiting untouched villages and schools.

The seven nights Discovery Heritage Cruise is also an amazing cruise that reveals the unique history, art and culture of the Northern Fiji Islands and allows passengers the ultimate experience of standing' on the natural International Dateline. The cruise visits Ovalau, Taveuni Island, Savusavu, Waiyevo and of course the 180th Meridian - the arbitrary Dateline between today and tomorrow.

The Discovery Cultural Cruise has five remaining departures in 2012 including, April 3, June 5, August 7, October 2, December 4 and February 5, 2013.

The Discovery Heritage Cruise has four remaining departures in 2012 including, May 1, July 3, September 4 and November 6 and 2013 dates include January 1 and March 5.
