Tourists on board the cruise liner MV Queen Elizabeth got a chance to experience first hand the type of activities offered at Denarau yesterday.
The cruise liner anchored of at Port Denarau in Nadi where its 2000 passengers had time to shop.
The liner left Southampton on January 5 on a 103-night epic maiden world voyage. The cruise liner called into 38 ports in 23 countries.
This was the first time for the ship to visit Fiji.
“We actually love Fiji. The sunshine is great and this is a great way to relax. Our next stop is New Zealand and yes the prices of items here are really cheap.
“I’d love to come here again, this country is just fabulous,” said Brian Williamson, a passenger.
The MV Queen Elizabeth will next dock at Auckland and will then call into ports at Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Lisbon.
The ship has already visited Panama, Suez Canals and Los Angeles. Fiji was their eighth stop.
“I love the sea, and finding out that the MV Queen Elizabeth was embarking on a long journey, I made up my mind that I was going to be part of that journey.
“I really love Denarau. I think I have spent up to $400 already buying presents for the family back at home. We really love to spend more time in Fiji and I can definitely say that we will be back” he said.
