Cruises to Doini Island
Papua New Guinea
This all-but-lost tropical paradise is privately owned and with just a handful of locals, a small resort and an airstrip, this place truly deserves 'deserted island' status.
Doini Island is made up of 1000 hectares of incredible landscape; most of it unchartered territory just waiting to be explored. Beautiful white beaches line its shores and the photo opportunities are once-in-a-lifetime.
And despite being one of Papua New Guinea's few private islands, it's virtually untouched, so make sure to adjust your watch to island time and enjoy the serenity!

WHAT TO WEAR ASHORE
To make your day as enjoyable as possible, be sure to wear comfortable, flat-soled shoes, lightweight clothing and a hat. Women are advised to dress conservatively and to wear shorts or skirts to at least knee length. We also suggest bringing sunscreen and bottled water. Snorkelling gear is available for hire or purchase onboard the ship.
There are no Shore Tours available to pre-book at this port but the local resort can cater to limited numbers of water sports and other activities which can be purchased directly ashore.
Coral is an extremely precious marine organism. In an effort to preserve its natural beauty and habitat please avoid touching it in all circumstances. During your time ashore we also ask that you dispose of your rubbish thoughtfully.
