    Hi there,
    A number of years ago when I went on a cruise and we landed at a particular place we decided to hire a local driver with his car, and ask him to show us places of interest, after agreeing on a price.It was a great day, we went to tops of mountains, visited villages etc. We saw it from a locals eyes.

    You may find that once you are on the cruise they might offer an optional extra for Port Moresby.I still would consider the hire a local and car:)

    if you are unexperienced traveling in PNG, or more specifically, Port Moresby, it might be a good idea to hire a driver. An absolute must see is the cultural museum (near Parliament which is also worth seeing while there). If you are a friendly, outgoing and confident traveler, I also recommend going to Gordon's market and chewing on a Betel Nut with the locals of Moresby. Just make sure you get back to a safe place before dusk--even the city residents don't go out at night. During the day, the people are fantastically friendly and cheerful. have fun.
