To me this was about the experience of a unique historic form of transport in a new environment. It met my expectations and I very much enjoyed the trip. It is obviously caters for the cruise ship fraternity. At over 70 myself I felt positively young, however the experience can be enjoyed by a wide age group. The shore activities... More

We recently did the 4 night cruise on The Murray Princess out of Mannum. We had a disabled cabin as my mother is on a walking frame/wheel chair and we were travelling with my sister and brother in law who had a stateroom. Our cabin was old however very comfortable with a separate fully adjustable air conditioner and the ship... More

Just spent 4 nights on the PS Murray Princess Paddle Steamer on the Murray River. Wow… it sure is geared toward the elderly and hubby and I are in our early 50's so it was a bit of a culture shock. The river is quite beautiful and the shore excursions are pretty good, but the meals are very 1980's RSL... More

Have spent the last four nights aboard Murray Princess on Murray River South Australia it was a fabulous cruise, the scenery was amazing, the on board service great, with great optional side trips, e.g Aussie Bush Breakfast. Highly recomend this excursion as a relaxing way to travel

A short two hours river cruise, nothing really exciting to see. Except seagulls flying. Not sure if there is other parts of the river that offers better sightseeing

Just had a long weekend on the Fox Tale 3 houseboat with 10 people on the boat. This was my first experience on a house boat and had a good time with friends, nice weather, good food & drink, it's just a pity the houseboat was a floating wreck. For the money they ask, I really did expect at least... More

Murray River we saw was at Tocumwal over the Victorian Border into New South Wales. Two states divide by this River. Some days calm River some days strong current. Allow camping by the Murray River quite cheaply $5.50 per person per day. Can canoe on it. It got a beach and it surrounded heavily with gum tree's scent beautiful smell.... More

What an incredible relaxing 4 days.cruising up and down the 'Mighty Murray'. Wonderful food well appointed, stateroom,great travelling companions.The crew are a credit to the company in the way they helped and attended to every need. Overnight stays on the river,excursions and overall fun for the entire cruise.I will be going again in the near future.
