Purpose built for adventure cruising, North Star is a boutique ship, i.e. a small intimate vessel. Itineraries are not very lengthy due to the ship’s size, which facilitates the cruise ship’s daily ports of call and frequent excursions. Solid expedition boats for excursions, snorkels and diving equipment are among the facilities on-board for passengers. On a Kimberely Cruise, passengers have the added opportunity to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the landscape from the on-board helicopter!
