Most reviews focus on luxury and the ship’s amenities, but when on an expedition cruise, especially in remote areas, the safety of guests is often overlooked.
During a fishing excursion a fellow guest experienced a subtle but potentially very serious medical event. Nick who was the guide was very observant to notice and assess the situation. He immediately radioed the ship and commenced a return to True North and requested assistance. Upon arrival at the ship a team of 6 crew members were assembled with extensive medical equipment.
Fortunately the guest recovered over the next 24 hours and was able to continue the cruise. The manner in which this event was managed by the crew of True North was exemplary, and assured me that should I be unfortunate to experience something similar, then my well-being would be in excellent hands.
