True North Overview

In early 2018 sail between Sydney Harbour and the Hawkesbury River for a New Year Spectacular. In January 2018 explore the coast of South Australia as you’ve never experienced; and in March, the coast of Western Australia. From April to September there is a variety of Kimberley adventures for a small group of discerning travellers: fine food, casual dress, good company, and discovery. October through early December explore Indonesia’s waters, volcanoes, corals, and whale-sharks. One 10-night cruise circles islands off Indonesian Papua, departing from Ambon Island – and this must be one of the truly rare explorer voyages, to places not visited by any other craft. See some of the world as described by Alfred Russel Wallace in his great classic of natural history “The Malay Archipelago” (1869). These are real adventure cruises. Then follows Papua New Guinea’s Sepik River, and Melanesia. Many islands are of historic value from WWII, with towns alongside towering active volcanoes. Connecting flights from Cairns/Brisbane link with cruises around Melanesia.


There are three cabin classes. All cabins are spacious, and feature ensuites, in-house movies, satellite telephones, and power (110v and 240v). Lower deck Ocean Class cabins (12 sq.m.) have two single beds and two portholes. The main deck River Class cabins (15 sq.m.) have a king size double bed (convertible to singles), increased shower size, writing desk, and ocean views through two large panoramic windows. On the upper deck Explorer Class cabins (15 sq.m.) also feature a king size double bed (convertible to singles), three large panoramic windows, writing desk, enhanced luxury fit out, and complimentary mini-bar.

Food and Dining

All meals are ‘the finest in dining’, 6-star as rated by past travellers. Signature meals include barramundi, black-lip oysters, Kimberley rib and lamb racks, with fresh vegetables and salads. Passengers are invited to advise of any dietary requirement and chefs are always pleased to prepare meals of preference. Menus may include the day’s catch – mangrove jack, coral trout, finger-mark bream, monster golden snapper & the revered barramundi are caught in tropical waters; in 'cooler climes' West Australian jewfish, pink snapper, emperors and whiting.


The entertainment is the journey. It begins with the ship’s naturalist presenting entertaining information about daily excursions. This is an expedition vessel, so expect to learn how to snorkel safely with complimentary equipment, clamber over rocks, beach walk, with pauses for sumptuous morning teas. With six expedition boats groups guests – first-timers or experienced hands – can plan their own style of fishing with the tackle provided, and either eat the catch or release the fish. Divers must be fully licensed and bring their complete gear.
