This was to be the highlight of our cruise with a full day excursion booked but this port was cancelled. The reason given was that the ship couldn't reach its maximum speed to reach the port on schedule. This was suspicious as we managed to make all our other ports on schedule. It would have been better if they missed Alotau. Instead we spent days floating around in the ocean with very little to amuse us. Read Less

We did not take the shore tour opted to visit the Wildlife Dome which was informative and nicely laid out with parrots flying free inside and walkways between other exhibits. Then we had a walk around the town. In the evening we visited the Night Market beneath the Breakfree Royal Harbour hotel, lots of souvenirs and bargains, well worth a visit. Read Less

Once again we did not do an excursion. The ship had to berth out and tender in. The bus transfer into town was a reasonable price as we were about 20 mins away and Taxis for two would have cost a fair bit more. The city centre offers as most do mainly shopping though you get to see their lovely waterfront. Hop and Hop off available from city only but expensive and shows little. Local transport for a short stay is difficult to organise from where we arrived into. Yorkeys Knob. I would suggest a ship excursion unless in a group. If you wanted to do the skyrail to Kuranda it is reasonably close. About 10 mins by Taxi. Read Less

We booked online before travelling but P&O didn't have our booking - Hamilton Island all trips were cancelled it was bad wether, (not ships fault) Cairns - we arrived 6 hours late after circling at sea as captain said winds too high to get ship into port - locals said there was no wind. The ship was so old it probably didn't have modern equipment like side thrusters so allow us into port other than perfect weather. Typical, we in Austral get dumped with the crap the no one else wants. Read Less
