I am TA newbie and am heading to Mana Island resort in Figi for Christmas. The resort have advised us to book our connection with South Sea Cruises and I just wanted to check if anyone has arrived around 6am at the airport (this is what time our flight gets in) and made it to the marina and got checked in ok for the 9am sailing? I’m worried about the flight being delayed or baggage taking a while to arrive but the airport seems to be quite close so hoping that it would be ok.
Also, I’ve read advice that we should pick up a few bits and pieces (alcohol, water, snacks etc.) to take with us to the island as it is very expensive over there. Do you think there would be time to do this near the marina before the 9am sailing. I’m wondering if we should just book the 12 o clock sailing to be on the safe side and wander around the marina for a while although we will have all our baggage which isn’t ideal! If you miss the 9am sailing would they let you take the 12 o clock sailing?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
