CRUISE SHOOT TO PNG

I’m not sure entrance level cruising on a large vessel (1,900 guests, 700 crew, 11 stories high) is the best option for a non drinking, long-over-partying, workaholic photographer who has a True North cruise of PNG to compare it to but – as I lay here on the stern with a cool drink in my hand under blue skies with the sun shining and the horizon of the South Pacific unfolding in front of me (below), I’m thinking, it’s not all bad.

For the next 10 days, I’m on board P&O’s cruise ship, Pacific Dawn, travelling from Brisbane to Papua New Guinea and back on what is a relatively easy assignment to supply a range of photographs of the ports of call for PNG’s national tourism authority and produce some cruise shots for a new book I’m planning. With only three days in port and the rest spent cruising, it seems I’ve got little else to do but enjoy the cruise.
