Luxury cruise liner Rhapsody of the Seas sailed into Port Moresby on Saturday with more than 2,000 tourists and berthed for 12 hours, allowing its passengers a taste of Papua New Guinea.
The visit marked a milestone for PNG tourism as it was the largest number of tourists to visit our shores at a single time.
More than 1,000 tourists disembarked and boarded about 60 hired buses for a tour of the city.
Other activities included a huge craft market staged within the wharf’s premises, organised by the Tourism Promotion Authority.
The cruise ship sailed in from Cairns, Australia, carrying with it tourists from all around the world who flew to Australia for a cruise around the South Pacific.
