Best time to cruise to papua new guinea

I am interested in taking a cruise on a Princess Line Ship that visits Rabaul, other small islands in PG and also the Solomon Islands and Noumena. There are various departure dates such as May and September and I would like to know which is the best for weather conditions as the tenders are unable to be used if the sea is too rough. Has anyone taken a Princess cruise in this area. Many thanks.
