North Star Cruises, the company that takes you to adventurous and exciting destinations and in style, have refined the above cruise to ensure that you experience of the highest quality.
This is a wonderful opportunity to cruise on their True North Cruise for between 5 and 13 nights to diverse destinations and daily changing adventures. The cruise takes you in to parts of the world that are untouched by modern life and you will receive a very warm welcome from the Melanesians where ever you go.
Depending on your interest, you could be swimming with whale sharks, flying over an active volcanoe in the helicopter that is part of the cruise experience, exploring rain forests and the advantage of having an expert on board to explain what you are seeing and doing.
Add in all those tropical island and coral reefs to be explored and snorkelled over and you will wish that you had booked a longer trip.
True North have cruises around Australia that take you to the wild and scenic places that are difficult to get and all with the luxury of their onboard life. Explore the Kimberley Wilderness, sail north from Perth on the Montes Cruise or take the Southern Safari as an add to your trip to Australia.
It truly is a different, exciting and unique way to see Australia, West Papua and Papua New Guinea.

When planning your bespoke trip to Australia make sure you talk to us about your time in Perth. There is so much to do here with the Daintree Forest, Great Barrier Reef and Tablelands to explore. You should ensure you give yourself plenty of time to see all that this part of Australia has to offer. It is a holiday destination in its own right.

For those that want to make even more of their time here and to explore even further afield then the following could be added to your tailor made holiday. Join a 6 day adventure with North Star Cruises to Papua New Guinea.

You will fly from Cairns (flight costs included) to Alotau to join your North Star vessel and sail in to the South China Strait. Over the next few days you will explore the Louisiade Archipelago, one of the great island arcs of the South Pacific, nearly 400kms of islands and barrier reefs along the northern edge of the Coral Sea. You will meet the seafaring Dobu people and have the best diving, snorkelling and fishing to be found in Papua New Guinea.

Snorkel over the Japanese Zero wreck at Deboyne Island, swim with manta rays at Losai Island and drift snorkel with huge trevally fish at Nivani Pass. You will have the chance to explore the little islands and to meet the locals and enjoy amazing meals on shore and on board. Take to the air in the helicopter to fly over the Calvados Barrier Reef and again over Misima Island for stunning views of emerald green islands in a deep blue tropical sea.

Finally, on some of the cruises an award winning underwater photographer will be on board to give you tips and guidance on how to make your underwater photos the envy of friends.
