Cultural festival done through ship was about the only thing on offer.It was a Sunday so everything closed.The cultural festival was well worth it.Such beautiful traditional costumes and dancing

Like almost everyone else on the ship, we went on the Alotau Cultural Festival tour. The locals dress up and put on a colourful, musical and cultural extravaganza with a sail on a war canoe being the highlight of the trip. Beyond this tour the options are extremely limited. The very small town has little to offer and the folks are extremely poor by western standards.

Great festival to see all the culture and dancing.It was Sunday and nothing opened.Only thing to do was the ship tour which was really worth it.Lovely

The thing we loved about this 15 day Cruise on the Golden princess was the mix of sea days and a split of ports of call i.e. undeveloped and developed. Alotau was our first destination and is a very charming small village hugging the shores of Milne Bay the site of WWII battles that are commemorated at the memorial to the soldiers of PNG, Australia and other Allies. Milne Bay Province have done this well and it was a pleasant walk of about 2kms from the Ship. The people are friendly and have not yet become too commercialised however they do their best to extract some value from the ships passengers in a non high pressure way and good on them I say, they don’t have much choice to add to their meagre earnings above the daily substance way of life. We opted not to do an excursion but chose to just walk into the town and experience the people. It was hot and humid and rained heavily so I advise a compact umbrella as a good addition to your pack or bag, though the rain was warm and not...

Alotau was ok for the trip to the village and cultural display which was entertaining and informative. The city itself was somewhat on the dingy side with the footpaths a bit sketchy at times. There were a few shops to buy stuff from but some of them were a bit dishonest with their prices. There were roadside markets but these were more for the locals and had limited souvenirs.

Won't be rushing back and not my cup of tea and maybe sometime in the future long time in the future
