    Abstract

    Attempts to prevent tourists from fraternising with the natives in Suva marks the decade of the 1930s as one of significant change for Fijian society. The accounts of cruise ship visitors to Fiji document the delicate race relations in the capital of the British colony and the efforts of the European authorities to maintain control. This article considers the ways in which tourists and residents reinforced and disrupted the established colonial order.
