P&O Cruises Opens New Port: Conflict Islands

Cruise News – Jun. 28, 2016

Passengers aboard P&O Cruises’ Pacific Jewel became part of history as the first cruisers to visit the Conflict Islands in Papua New Guinea.

The remote, uninhabited island group – consisting of 21 islands around a bright blue lagoon – provided an opportunity for visitors to kayak, snorkel, paddleboard, and take a glass-bottomed boat over one of the world’s most biodiverse coral reef habitats.

The line’s eighth port in Papua New Guinea has been opened thanks to a partnership with entrepreneur and passionate conservationist Ian Gowrie-Smith, one of very few people to own parcels of land freehold in the island nation.

“Even though they are close to Australia, many of Papua New Guinea’s picturesque islands are rarely visited because they are difficult to access,” says P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell. “Cruising really is the easiest way to see this stunning corner of the world.”
