We chose this cruise because it was something different with a significant historical significance. Overall it was a good cruise. The history lectures were excellent. The tenders to Doini Island took hours and was most frustrating. However getting to Kiriwina Island was very easy on the tenders with no waiting. Dining was excellent. Gluten free diet was well catered for. Entertainment overall was excellent - a big improvement on the island cruise we took a few months ago. Passenger services were good. However we had an ocean view cabin on Plaza deck and whilst the cabin was good there was a constant pump noise spasmodically going through the night waking one up constantly. After six days we were moved to a balcony cabin (B735). We were just grateful to have a quiet cabin. Having been on the Emerald Princess there was a big difference in the comfort of the beds - we did not notice that they were supposed to be new beds. They were wonderful beds on the Emerald Princess..

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BX P340 & B735
Apart from the constant noise Cabin P340 was very good - midship and close to everything so no waiting on lifts.
Cabin B735 was quiet but very small with one single bed very small as it had a couch backing on the side cutting down the size of the single bed. Would not recommend this cabin as a balcony cabin. Carpet was dirty and needed replacing.
