I don't mean to put a damper on this, but there is a downside to cruise tourism which PNG should be aware of. One of my sons worked for several years in the British Virgin Islands and saw the seedy side of rapid-transit tourists in the Caribbean.

Local people's customs and culture are degraded by putting on touristy displays. Prostitution and drug use increase, opportunity theft is seen as a 'business opportunity' and money from tourists goes as quickly as it comes.
