Cruises to Port Moresby

About Port Moresby

The capital of Papua New Guinea is not somewhere most cruise passengers spend a lot of time. While there are reasonable four-star hotels, Port Moresby is really only worth a day or two while transiting to other locations. The Airways Hotel at the airport is the best and most convenient location for transit passengers, although by no means the cheapest.

Why go to Port Moresby?

Pros:

Port Moresby boasts some interesting historical sights and is a great place to shop for souvenirs

Cons:

In the past, street crime has been a significant issue here, so always be on alert

Bottom Line:

There's enough here to fill a day as you make your way to other destinations, but it's not the most pleasant port

Good to Know?

Port Moresby has suffered from bad press over the years and is still occasionally troubled, but insiders say things are much improved, due to a clamp down on street crime and a tidying up of the city. Lavish new real estate developments are a sign of things looking up.

If you're overnighting in Port Moresby, it is still advisable not to walk anywhere at night, alone or not.
