The cruise from Murray Bridge to Blanchetown and back over 5 days was a very relaxing experience with excellent meals and good service from thoughtful, attentive and pleasant staff. The off-boat activities were well organised and vary informative. Kayaks were available for us to paddle our way quietly through the by-ways.

We did the 2 hour lunch cruise. Beautiful day so it made it more enjoyable. Staff are lovely, its very well organised. Just a little disappointed with the actual lunch. The servings are so small! It was tasty though. Dessert was bit woeful. Just a tiny bowl with canned 2 fruits on the bottom with cornflake crackles on top with scoop icecream. So I'd call it a snack, not lunch.

Went on a lunch cruise and was not told about the cash only bar. No eftpos so I had to sit their dry while everyone else had a drink as I don't carry cash. Also I find in covid to only have cash option goes against all covid compliance. They should just raise the lunch price by 10 bucks and include a drink. If you wanted anything other than instant coffee you had to pay 2.50. It just came across mean. The lunch was also ordinary but enough to keep you alive I guess.. anyhoo very disappointing as I was so looking forward to it but could not recommend this tour.

My wife and I were looking forward to an enjoyable Proud Mary cruise on the Murray River, unfortunately, our cabin Number 10 was right near a noisy generator that kept us awake all night. Not a wink of sleep. Tried sleeping upstairs in the lounge but could still hear the noise, so after consultation with the crew we terminated the cruise after one day and received 50% refund. Would not recommend the Proud Mary.

We went on a lunch cruise, without the the bus tour as we were travelling from Adelaide Hills and did not want to go on tour This option was not advertised on the website, however when I phoned to enquire, the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Smorgasbord lunch was very good, with fresh food and fruit. However, I would have thought there would have been more commentary along the way! For many, it was their first time on Australia's longest river and would suspect they did not know very much about it after their journey. (For me, I went on the PV Rothbury at Mildura late in 2018 and the commentary was very informative). For instance: how long is the Proud Mary?; What was it used for? When was it built? How many owners? How far has it traveled? How ling is the river? How deep is the river? The history of water management of the Murray and it goes on........ The people from the bus tour that we spoke to were not impressed with the bus commentary either. Apparently the guide spoke too fast and was muffled and did not explain what they were seeing and could not understand him. The example were the fruit trees, they did not what type of fruit on the trees, what it was for (dried, export etc.) I did get some information that I could not find on the web, which was the planting of the willow trees every quarter mile as navigation aids in the day and how they now line the Murray. All in all, it was a relaxing couple of hours, met some fellow travellers and enjoyed the fresh lunch.
