Sail Date: Apr 2021

We recently did the 13-night Wyndham to Broome "Kimberley Ultimate" cruise on True North travelling "River Class" (the mid-level of 3 options). We had done the identical trip twice before (2014 & 2017) at the same time of year on a smaller (18 guest) top quality vessel but True North simply outshone our earlier trips in every way. The suites are luxurious (we could not fault a single thing), the staff are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, ultra-friendly and respectful (to all the guests, most of whom are beyond middle age and retired). The choice of activities is unlimited and we chose to fish most times and caught some record-setting fish (for us) including 4 barramundi, one of which was 103cm. There are also many nature trips available on the comfortable tenders (led by naturalist Nat) plus a regular choice of challenging (to very challenging) walks (lets be honest - cliff climbs!!) to crocodile-free swimming holes - plus endless opportunities to enjoy scenic helicopter flights. The food is gourmet quality and the barista quality coffee is available at all times. Wine is on a pay as you go basis with a good choice and remarkably reasonable mark-ups. A True North cruise is simply the best adventure holiday you can take. We wanted for nothing. Thank you Captain Ben and our warmest thank-you to every member of the crew! It's not inexpensive but worth every dollar. Just do it.

Luxurious. And servicing was first rate.
