Review summary

Marvellous oldish ship. All staff were very friendly and happy to help. Balcony room was great. At Kiriwina island, some fool of a passenger almost started WWIII by trying to bargain down a piece of local handicraft by 2 cents. Some locals arrived with spears, causing the captain to call an immediate evacuation of the port. Great ports of call. Very good time on beautiful South Pacific islands.
