A new look True North

The Adventure-Cruise Ship TRUE NORTH has resumed operations after extensive annual refit

9th March 2020
The adventure-cruise ship TRUE NORTH recently completed an annual refit in the port city of Fremantle.

The ever-popular ship is removed from the water every year in February and no expense is spared bringing all facilities back to show-room condition. However, this year’s refit was even more extensive than usual.

The ship’s forward sundeck and alfresco bar areas were substantially refined to provide much-more user-friendly and, no doubt much-more enjoyable, guest spaces.

The sundeck has benefited from the provision of improved and additional seating, new tabletops and daybeds, mood lighting and Tefroka decking. Whilst the alfresco bar area features new and improved table arrangements, additional lighting and Tefroka decking.

Managing Director, Craig Howson, explained that everyone at True North Adventure Cruises was excited about the refinements. “We were aware that these areas of the ship were being underutilised – they have always been fantastic spaces, but we needed to make some improvements to ensure that our guests were able to take full advantage of both areas. This year’s refit provided the maintenance window that we have been looking for and now I can’t wait to join our guests as they relax in even greater style than before.”

In addition to the usual refit requirement, other ship-wide refinements included adding the impressive Tefroka decking to all external stairs, additional soundproofing in the ship’s lounge and the complete repainting of the ship’s exterior.

And Howson is looking forward to a busy year. “I think a lot of Australians will choose to holiday at home this year, to help with the bushfire recovery and possibly to avoid international destinations that present a higher risk of coronavirus infection.”

The ship departed Fremantle on March 5 and will visit the Abrolhos Islands, Ningaloo Reef and the Monte Bello Islands as part of the annual West Coast Explorer. A sold-out guest list will disembark in Dampier after 10 nights onboard.

The TRUE NORTH will then continue onto Broome ahead of the ship’s much-revered Kimberley season. A small number of cabins are still available for 13 & 7-night adventures along the spectacular Kimberley Coast.
