P&O will set off on its first dedicated cruise to Papua New Guinea (PNG) later this month.
The nine-night PNG Paradise cruise will depart Brisbane on 31 October on board Pacific Dawn.
Port calls include stops in Townsville, Alotau, Kiriwina Island, Kawanasausau, Milne and Doini Island.
Earlier this year, Carnival Australia chief executive Ann Sherry said cruising is the perfect way to explore PNG’s beaches, scenery and ancient customs.
She said: “We’re very excited to be able to take Australian holidaymakers from their doorstep and show them this region from the comfort of a superliner for the first time.”
Holidaymakers can learn more about P&O’s PNG Paradise cruise this week, when Channel Nine’s Today Show presents its weather update from the nation’s remote islands.
Weatherman, Steve Jacobs will report live from Trobriand Islands and Rabaul each morning from Tuesday, 15 October to Friday 18 October.
A second P&O PNG Paradise cruise will also sail out on 16 November this year.
