Rabaul Cruise Port Facilities?
Most times ships will dock at the wharf in the old town of Rabaul, where passengers may be confronted with the devastation caused by several volcanoes, the last of which almost finished off the town in 1994. The nearby market has been partly restored, and many of the WWII-era buildings are still in place, as they were designed to withstand the fierce Allied bombing while the town was occupied by the Japanese from 1942-45.
