While U.S. currency is accepted at most locations, carrying some local currency is always advantageous. Check the ATM outside Customs as itís convenient and also has the best rate on Fiji dollars.

Two-for-one prices aboard Naiía are sometimes offered via Internet for low-season or last-minute vacancies. Check out their website at (a well-done site with good information) for bargains.

Note too that, while Naiía generally sails out of Lautoka, a half-hour plus ride from Nadiís airport, sailings that precede crew holidays return to Suva instead. Itís worth inquiring where your trip will terminate. The 4-hour trip back to Nadi is in a bus that is little more than a bucket of bolts with broken a/c and a surly driver ó not pleasant.

The Naiíaís ads say special dietary requests will be accommodated, but on my trip a special request made in advance via the pre-trip registration form was ignored. Frequent reminders and a little noise may be required to insure your request isnít lost in the shuffle.
