    I would still go and show him you won't allow him to rule you and ruin your plans or stop you from having fun

    Also, i'd ring the resort and get them to book you a taxi to come pick you up at the airport and get them to tell you the drivers name. That way you aren't just picking a random taxi outside the airport. You can ask the drivers (who all wait outside their cabs) where 'so and so' is. The ones I have encountered are really really friendly and seem like such nice people.

    I went on my own when DS was 2. Had a fabulous time spent a week at plantation island resort and a week at the shangrila Fijian resort. Had a ball. Went to Nadi and Suva i felt very safe and comfortable.

    Is it because of the floods?

    We were going to be attending a family wedding in Fiji in the middle of the year but its been cancelled and moved elsewhere due to problems after the recent floods.

    Before deciding to go alone, I'd check with your travel agent (or if you didn't use one, then check with the resort) if they've been effected by the floods and if its going to impact on your trip.

    If its just that he never wanted to go and is now pulling out for no other reason, and you've confirmed that the resort is still fully operational, then he's just acting like a child and I'd be insisting he honour his commitment. That's a lousy thing to do to anyone, let alone your family.

    Thanks everyone for your replies, I am so furious it's not funny. I'm not talking to DH but he says he does want to come, but he never wanted the holiday in the first place and I talked him into it (I haven't spent much time discussing it as I'm just. so. angry).

    I could take my sister or a friend but I actually think it might be less stress to just go on my own with DS. It would be a bit scary but my sister and I argue a lot and if I took my friend I'd offend my sister for not inviting her.

    That's if DH doesn't want to come. I feel he doesn't deserve to come now anyway

    just another thought, might be worth checking the situation in Fiji now with all the flooding from the recent cyclone? You might be able to cancel without penalty? As for him not wanting to go, find someone else, Fiji is a great place for families, and they do love children. I hope you can work out something and not loose the money. hugs, Marie.

    The resorts are as safe as houses, but venturing outside of them, especially to Nandi is a little scary. You will have a blast and the Fijian ladies will be fighting to take DS off your hands.

    Check the flood situation before you go. You might get all your money back.

    Oh I feel for you. Holidays are so great for a marriage. It sounds like he doesn't want in anymore. I am so sorry.

    Go without him. Have a ball. Flirt, laugh, think, walk and decide what you want and deserve.

    Watch the movie Getting Over Sarah Marshall.

    Huge huge hugs. You deserve so much better.

    Definitely not because of the floods, SIL just got back from Fiji last week and said it's fine, even in Nadi it's ok - not great but ok. Our resort hasn't been affected at all.
