Weather Advisory in effect

South Sea Cruises Group

Bula & Good Morning,

This is further to previous advisories issued in relation to Tropical Cyclone Mal, the last of which was issued on Monday, 13th of November 2023.  

With TC Mal now moving away from Fiji, we are pleased to report that South Sea Cruises assets, including islands and vessels, as well as our staff, were largely unaffected. There is, however, some cleanup to do over the next day or so, and our vessels will remain in their cyclone holes until high tide at 7.00 pm tonight when they’ll return to Port Denarau.

Based on the current conditions and information to hand, South Sea Cruises will resume services as follows: 

Thursday 16th of November 2023:

  • Resort Transfers to the Mamanuca & Yasawa Islands will resume as scheduled, with Route 7 departing to the Yasawa Islands (including Vomo) at 8.45 am, and the first of four daily services to the Mamanuca Islands departing aboard Route 1 at 9.00 am.
  • South Sea Sailing will resume operations, departing at 9.45 am.
  • All other day trips operated by South Sea Cruises including South Sea Island & Malamala Beach Club will remain suspended whilst our teams complete their clean up, and preparations to resume operations.

Friday 17th of November 2023:

  • All Resort Transfers and day Trips are expected to depart and operate as scheduled.

Based on our current advice, should customers need to alter their travel arrangements with South Sea Cruises, please contact our Cruise Centre at or phone 9995512. Responses might be delayed today, and until our normal staff roster resumes tomorrow (Thursday).  

This is expected to be the last advisory issued regarding TC Mal. We appreciate everyone’s patience, support, and understanding as to the disruptions since Monday and take this opportunity to remind everyone that customer and crew safety will always be paramount in such weather events.
