Travel agents are not confirming whether it is likely that flights will be cancelled but is it likely to be a disaster zone on the coral coast when we get there?

    Steve, the Australian government has just downgraded its travel warning for the Coral Coast to "exercise a high degree of caution".... which is about what it would say for Canberra (joke).
    The Fiji tourism authorities have been busy today (April 4th) posting pictures of cleaned up resorts and declaring they're open for business and ready for easter visitors this weekend. Flights have resumed normal services.
    The cyclone season officially ends at the beginning of April (although that date coincidentally is the same as easter, a busy time for tourism, hmmm), so it's pretty unlikely there'll be another cyclone this season - check the forecast though.
    I have personal experience of a similar situation - my family missed Cyclone Thomas by 3 days. The resort was fully operational by the time we got there. I imagine, given how dependent the country is on tourism, they'll be doing everything in their power to be ready for you.
    Fiji is pretty used to these natural disasters, and they bounce back. Just spare a thought for all the locals who've borne the brunt of the bad weather (tip big.)
