Dinning on-board True North Adventure Cruises is a casual affair with no assigned seating but culinary experiences are always to the highest standard. The galley delivers continuously evolving dishes drawing from an array of different cuisines to ensure that each dining experience is unique to every itinerary. Guests can sample oysters straight from the sea washed down with champagne or savour for a Kimberley sunset and oysters on the bow.

True North Adventure Cruises prides on having a ship-wide open-door policy – guests are always encouraged to spend time with the chefs and share their knowledge and passion for food at any time during the day. You might encounter freshly prepared breakfast items like jams, marmalade, artisan honeys, or oil infused bread rolls made daily for the lunch and dinner settings. See butchery or fish mongering, jus and stock creation, curing, smoking, gently pressing and marinating with a Cryovac machine or cooking with a thermo regulated water bath. Watch them roll pasta, discuss how they prepare sashimi or simply take a photo to remind just how much you indulged whilst on-board.
