Dear Moira W Oh I know what you mean about the TV in the lounge. I am 'tech- challenged' and I can never work out which button to push, made worse by the fact that John and the younger staff find it all so easy!...More

I don't recall any cruises that run up the Derwent. There is a bus that runs from Hobart regularly though. The drive is only about 45minutes and is quite pleasant as you drive next to the Derwent.
