A little. Overall, casual summer clothing will be most appropriate during the day, but you will also need to bring something to cover your shoulders and knees during visits to local villages. Fijians dress modestly and revealing clothing is not permitted in public places.
In the evenings, the dress code is smart-casual attire with footwear required in the lounges and in the dining saloon. The captain's welcome dinner on the opening night is your chance to get glammed up, but only if you want to.
