A sweet week cruising to PNG

We've both always wanted to visit Papua New Guinea / Nuigini. We had an opportunity to do a quick intro cruise from Cairns to a few ports in the far east of PNG and share it with Jo, a colleague from work. We had some credit with P&O so used it to upgrade to a suite on the seven night New Guinea Island Encounter on the Pacific Eden. The cruise left from Cairns and we flew up from Brisbane on the morning of departure. The cruise visited Alotau, Kitava Island, Kiriwina Island and the Conflict Islands. The weather is very tropical and we went fully prepared for the fact that we might not make it ashore at all of the destinations due to rough seas. We'd been on Eden's sister ship Aria earlier in the year so we knew what to expect with the ship, food and entertainment. P&O Australia does not sell itself as five star and it isn't. Go with that expectation and you might be pleasantly surprised.
