New Guinea Island Encounter Cruise Itinerary

After two nights exploring Cairns and the amazing natural wonders nearby, hop aboard P&O’s Pacific Eden! Newly renovated in 2015 she boasts amazing cabins, activities and facilities! Settle into your cabin and get ready for your seven-night cruise around the islands of Papua New Guinea!
Enjoy a day at sea on the way to the first port of call, Alotau! Whether you want to relax, or get your adrenaline pumping, there is something for everyone on the Pacific Eden! Check out the P&O Edge Adventure Park, complete with a ropes course, laser tag, and rock climbing!
Welcome to Papua New Guinea! Alotau is steeped in rich history and culture and set amongst breathtaking natural scenery. From snorkelling to cultural festivals, there is something for everyone in Alotau! Located on the southern tip of the mainland, Alotau is the gateway to many of the most remote island communities in the world.
Almost completely untouched by outside influences, experience the tribal culture first hand as the locals welcome you to Kitava with a traditional dance on the beach.
Spend your day soaking up the sights by taking part in the surreal Rabaul Volcanic Tour or brush up on your local knowledge with a War and Colonial History Tour, delving in to the tumultuous past of Papua New Guinea’s nation.
The largest of the Triobriand Islands, Kiriwina is today’s port of call. Another unspoilt island rich in fascinating history, from the local tribes, to the island’s time as a WWII airbase. Make sure to visit the market run by locals from nearby villages selling handmade souvenirs.
The Conflict Islands are a coral atoll made up of 21 delectable islands in the Coral Sea. Ideal for snorkelling, kayaking and swimming the remote islands have one of the most diverse collection of coral and marine life in the world.
Enjoy the beautiful waters and beaches that Papua New Guinea is renown for.
One last day at sea on the way back to Cairns. Make the most of the Pacific Eden’s onboard facilities including the adults-only Oasis area, the fully equipped Spa with highly trained therapists, and the Salt Grill with food from celebrity chef Luke Mangan.
Welcome back to Australia! You have now reached the end of your P&O cruise aboard the Pacific Eden. As part of your My Cruises package, you will be taken to the airport to meet your complimentary flight home.
