So say many of the passengers who step off a True North adventure cruise.
A South Pacific cruise with a difference, the True North offers adventure cruises all around the magnificent Australian coastline, venturing into the waters of equally stunning Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
This appetite for waters less travelled – at least by cruise ships – makes an adventure on the True North one of Australia’s most unique and desired holidays.
The True North’s carefully crafted sailing schedule shows off every destination is at its best. Whether taking in the breathtaking majesty of the Kimberley region, enjoying the overwhelming hospitality of the South Pacific, or kicking up their heels in one of Australia’s colourful and diverse cities, passengers on the True North are assured of being in the right place at the right time.
Specifically excluding extended periods at sea, a True North itinerary focuses on offering guests the chance to really experience each destination. Daily activities can include walks, fishing, snorkelling, diving, picnics, cultural events, or learning about the fascinating ecology and natural history of this region.
The True North is purpose built to access those wilderness areas bigger ships can’t reach. Multiple adventure boats take guests in small groups to experience nature up-close, and the luxury of numerous tenders also gives guests greater opportunity to do “what they want, when they want.” Most cruise options feature an on-board helicopter, adding another dimension to the adventure.
As an Australian registered ship, the True North is not required to exit territorial waters during Australian voyages. That means every day on-board the True North is an activity day.
The True North features spacious cabins, each offering modern decor, en-suite, and a satellite telephone. Guest numbers are limited to 36, and an Australian crew of 22 uniquely chaperones every experience. Dining on-board the True North is sustainable and organic, with a fresh take on modern Australian cuisine. The ship’s menus are also destination-inspired and feature the very best locally sourced ingredients.
Signature dishes might include barramundi (perhaps caught by the passenger’s very own hand that same day), plump black-lip oysters prized from the rock in between sips of champagne, mud crabs cooked on the beach at sunset, or Spanish mackerel served as sashimi in the ship’s lounge.
Hometown highlights can include delicious mangrove jack and finger-mark bream, seasonal yellow-fin tuna, and Yeeda Estate beef. The True North’s ‘heli-picnics’ are an unforgettable way to enjoy the quintessential Aussie barbeque, featuring a wide variety of seafood cooked alongside your private waterfall in the wild.
Destinations include the spectacular Kimberley region, the wild coast of Western Australia, including the Abrolhos Islands and world-famous Ningaloo Reef, Komodo Island, home to the famous dragons, the islands of the Raja Ampat, the whale sharks of Cenderawasih Bay, the mighty Sepik River, the un-spoilt islands of Papua New Guinea, mysterious Bougainville, beautiful Sydney Harbour, and a seafood safari around the delightful Eyre Peninsula.
