Ship Details

True North II

True North II

Operated by: True North

True North II provides an intimate experience for just 22 expeditioners on her Kimberley and Australian coastal voyages.  Built in 1999, and refurbished early in 2023, True North II features a combined saloon / lounge, while the dining room offers a glamorous setting and the revered True North dining experience. Onboard, there’s also a sundeck, outdoor bar deck and a dedicated sports deck.

All cabins aboard True North II feature a private en suite, with in-house entertainment and satellite telephones. Explorer Class staterooms and River Class cabins offer queen-size beds, while Ocean Class cabins feature roomy bunk-configured singles.

True North II is purpose-built to explore coastal areas including the upper reaches of shallow river systems – guests need only step out of their cabins to experience wilderness. But the adventure doesn't stop there. Five excursion tenders provide expeditioners with greater opportunity to do “what they want, when they want” and, to add yet another dimension to adventure, most itineraries feature an onboard helicopter, available to travellers at additional cost. 

The crew of True North II are generally young Australians who create a truly authentic onboard experience. The crew are always very much part of onboard life - you may even feel as though they are having just as much fun as you are! That’s because they are – every day is an adventure for the crew as well and you will not be able to resist their enthusiasm and passion.

Pricing on True North II generally represents a 25% saving when compared to the True North, and while True North will offer the superior level of onboard refinement, life onboard True North II will be very comfortable and stylish and more importantly, it will still be the same True North experience featuring unparalleled access to wilderness, multiple daily activities and, revered onboard dining.
