North Star Cruises’ ship, the True North, is 164 feet long with a seven foot draft. The ship was purpose-built to sail deep into the very heart of wilderness areas that larger ships simply cannot access. The True North features a sundeck, a forward observation lounge, a ship’s lounge, an alfresco bar and a sports deck. The ship’s naturalist presents interpretative information on plasma screens and, an internet café enables convenient communication with the outside world.

The ship’s modern Australian cuisine is supplemented with locally sourced ingredients and complemented by an outstanding selection of Australian wines. Signature dining includes freshly caught barramundi – a revered sport fish possibly caught by guests, Angus or delicate Wagyu beef, or exquisite Australian lamb.

All cruises are designed to allow passengers to ‘experience the destination’ – daily activities include scenic walks, helicopter flights, fishing, snorkeling, culture, picnics, nature, diving, cultural events and spectacular flights in the ship’s helicopter. Itineraries specifically exclude lengthy periods at sea and feature frequent daily excursions.  Multiple expedition vessels take guests away in small groups to experience wilderness up close and the luxury of numerous tenders also means that everybody onboard gets to do “what they want, when they want”!
