New True North Cruise Explores Pristine Solomon Islands

North Star Cruises has announced a brand new opportunity for adventure with the new Solomon Sojourn itinerary on board the magnificent True North ship.

The inaugural eight-day Solomon Sojourn cruise will depart Brisbane in November 2010, with a second cruise running back-to-back.

North Star General Manager Peter Trembath said the stunning Pacific Island Solomon Island region was virtually untouched by tourism.

"We're offering a truly unique opportunity to experience the beauty of this place and its people," said Mr Trembath.

The Solomon Sojourn features an exciting mix of culture, vibrant coral reef, history and the stunning South Pacific – as well as True North's revered line-up of snorkelling, diving, fishing and helicopter exploration.

Highlights of the eight day itinerary include:

• Exploring the volcanic Savo Island
• Fishing, diving and snorkelling at Russell, Uepi, and Kennedy Islands
• Discovering fascinating US war time history
• Soaking up the culture and vibrant atmosphere of local markets and villages
• Swimming in pristine lagoons
• Commercial return flights from Brisbane to Honiara

Mr Trembath urged anyone interested to book early.

"Our maiden adventures on board True North always sell out fast and cabins must be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis," he said.

Prices for the Solomon Sojourn start at $10,995 per person.
