An absolutely unique experience. The natural features of the Murray River were magnificent as we chugged past them. We moored by the bank, enjoyed old fashioned camp fires in the evening before we repaired to our cabins. Such simplicity of travel but superb food cooked and presented to perfection. Such a treat!

The gentle pace and old-world service is a rare experience these days. The river and the boat are the stars of the show, but the supporting cast is great. The crew are very committed and love what they do. The food is wonderful and plentiful. It helps to be a person who admires nature, is happy to chat with others, and is interested in a bit of history. It is a holiday that felt like a holiday, and one which I will remember for a long time. Now - can I just get my mum to come along?

Neded a short break and were lucky enough to have booked in a window between Covid Lockdowns. Just two nights but it gacve us the break we needed. The staff was great, the paddle steamer trip on the Murray River was restful and the whole experience made all the better with the great crew on the boat. We had the Emmylou cabin hich was a little bigger than the others, windows on three side and we could watch the river flow by. Plenty of food and good food to. Thoroughly recommend the trip if you want nothing to do but relax.

The crew were excellent and made every effort to ensure we enjoyed ourselves.A great experience.We have sailed in very grand vessels on all oceans of the world and your people tried as hard to make us happy as the crews on the grand international vessels.

If you like the nice quiet tranquility of relaxing then this is for you. The cruise was pleasant, the crew excellent and went out of their way to assist you, and they got all your names within about a day. The food was also excellent and plentiful. Unfortunately part of the trip was spoilt because of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions for NSW so we ere unable to go ashore in most places. It is also best to not go during the winter period as it is quite cold.
