It could have been Mykonos, Barcelona or Paris but a cruise to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, although not typical gay destinations, sounded quite exotic to us. The fact that we had never been to either place before made it an easy choice for our honeymoon adventure. Whether on your honeymoon or not, cruising to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands will present destinations that have a touch of the exotic, a hint of luxury and bucketloads of fun and relaxation, especially when you take your friends.
With so many recent awards and accolades as a world leader in diversity and inclusion, particularly for LGBTI passengers, we wanted to 'test the waters' and see how a cruise with Royal Caribbean compared to other lines.
We found paradise, relaxation, stunning island beauty and friendly Melanesian people when we visited Vanuatu and the Isle of Pines on a recent cruise around the Pacific. Although we discovered no gay factor in the islands during our short stay, we did find a few fabulous things to do.
