For several businesses in tourism, this festive season continues to be lucky that got negatively affected by this depressing pandemic. Captain Cook Cruises Director, Alivereti Koroilavesau explains that for Christmas and New Year cruises, there’s been a major demand from Fijians. Koroilavesau also says with this that they are even able to bring in more staff who remained at home for the last couple of months.
“And as of today Captain Cook has been able to employ 75% of our staff and for the next two trips, we have above 100 that will be traveling with us. Due to popular demand, we will be opening three more cruises after the 2nd of January.”
This will be their first four-day cruise since March 2020, as per Koroilavesau, when the industry got extremely injured by COVID-19. He mentions that it took them nine months at least to arrange for this trip and the reaction from Fijians has been awesome!
Yesterday, the four-day Christmas cruise to the Yasawas started as the New Year’s cruise is planned for this Saturday.
