About Cruising to Honiara

The capital of the Solomon Islands is the only real port with sufficient infrastructure to cope with full-size cruise ships. Even then, it's a bit of an effort to get a whole ship ashore.

Mostly, the Solomon Islands are geared for expedition ships that will put small numbers of guests (typically fewer than 200) ashore by Zodiac or other tender.

In this respect, the Solomon Islands are one of the most exciting adventure cruise destinations in the South Pacific, with dozens of suitable locations to go ashore where small communities welcome visitors with dances and cultural displays.

Honiara Cruise Reviews
Very interesting part of the South Pacific/Coral Sea. Quite basic facilities outside the few 4/5 star hotels, but a great spot to investigate the way of life of these Islanders. Nearby is the location for one of the Read More
