The Volendam cruise ship visited Dravuni Island and nearby Suva in Fiji in mid-October 2010. This 7 minute video highlights a few of the sights and sounds of these two contrasting parts of Fiji - the largest city, and a palm-fringed island with about 200 residents.
The most memorable part of our two day visit to Fiji this time had to be the Fiji Police Band, which is prominently featured in this video. The ship was waiting in Suva harbour for the arrival of New Zealand customs and immigration officers. They were delayed about two hours...so we waited, and the band played on (as the old saying goes). What a show - this is no ordinary marching band!
