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.

We are around age 50 & were the youngest amongst the passengers - They were mostly in there 60s & older. That was OK for us because we wanted a quiet & relaxed weekend & were fascinated with the idea of doing... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing 5 hour cruise. Departed Mildura 10.30am, quick detour downstream to view Lock 11 then 2 hours upstream to Trentham Estate winery. Treated to a guided tour, wine tasting (wide range of wines at good prices) & bbq lunch before back on the vessel to Mildura, arriving back at 3.30pm. Paddlesteamer was charming with plenty of room... More

Greatly looking forward to the 4 night round trip from Mannum but unfortunately we were very disappointed. Our very first and most important suggestion would be to the cruise director, on our trip Michael. At the culmination of the initial meet and greet/safety talk we believe he should strongly mention, for the comfort and consideration of other passengers, not to... More
