Disappointed because of the weather

When we arrived at our embarkation point, Mannum, after a 1.15 hour coach trip from hotel pickup Adelaide the temperature was in the high 30c, alas that was as good as it gets! For the next 4 days it was cold & rainy, not the companies fault though. We booked an outside cabin (outside onto the deck) with 2 single beds, as a double was not available unless we paid an extra $200. I am 6+foot ...

It was something different, than a normal sea cruise. And what a surprise, did not expect the cruise would be so beautiful, and adventurist, while being so relaxing, and fun. The crew always tried to make sure your experience was everything you could want. Did not realize the Murray River was so gloriously beautiful. The swans on the river each morning was a real majestic ballet of grace ...

The boat looks like it is recently refurbished. Cabin tough small is clean and comfortable. The cabin is serviced like a hotel with a nightly "make up " room with goodnight chocolates It was so relaxing sitting on the bed and gazing into the wide expanse of the Murray River watching birdlife and activities along the banks The service is impeccable especially in the dining room, Meals ...

What a great cruise, relaxing, great sights, made a lot of new friends and had a lot of fun doing it. We were picked up on time by bus from Adelaide. one of three stops before heading of to Mannum, the town that the paddlewheel ship departs from, John the driver was a bit of a hard case, and the 2 1/2 hour trip flew by with John's rendition of the local area and history. The ship itself ...

Mannum to Loxton (Well, An Attempt Anyway)

Overall, the trip on the Murray Princess was worth taking, even though we have a houseboat that travels in the same area of the river. We did not get to Loxton as the Princess could not get through a narrow channel at the 356km marker, so we returned to Mannum instead. The river was below normal level due to work on the weir at Blanchetown and the wind was ferocious at the time we went aground. ...

We booked the four night cruise on the Murray River Princess and travelled with my husband, my sister and our elderly mum. Hubby and I booked the Stateroom as we were after a bit more luxury. It had been recently refurbished with very nice decor, including the bathroom. The Stateroom features a coffee/tea station which most cabins do not. I did think that given it's supposed to be a more ...

Loved Every Minute

This is a wonderful once in a lifetime experience. This 7day cruise (3 day + 4 day) is for those who feel comfortable in the water (not just a pool) and who wish to snorkel twice a day. It is very casual and relaxed and we were lucky to have Jackie as our hospitality manager. The Fijian Islands have the most wonderful islands with the clearest water - in one word "Paradise". The small ...
