As first time cruisers we were unsure what to expect, the whole family are now cruise lovers!! couldn't fault P&O Pacific Dawn, staff were fabulous and cruise director Willie made our experience. As first timers and our first time overseas PNG was definitely the best choice, it was great to immerse my kids in the traditions, culture and lifestyle of the people. Seeing sights from an active volcano and hot springs, WWII historical sites to beautiful breathtaking islands. This cruise offered everything ypu could wish for. The PNG people were very welcoming and excited by the cruises visit, my home is now littered with beautiful carvings and wonderful memories.. PNG is a must for avid photographers, no one can take a bad photo here, even me!!! this cruise is a must for anyone's bucket list!! We may even do it again, to catch up with some of the lovely locals we met!!
