I returned two days ago from a seven day cruise on the Murray Princess. I was interested to read the most recent review from a couple who , it seems, must have left the cruise as I boarded. Kevin, was their cruise director and was on his second week of duty so that fits. There is certainly a big difference... More

Our principal complaint concerns the accommodation on board the vessel-we were allocated cabin 41 on Cadell Deck. The cabin is about 3m wide and about 4m long with a central aisle about 1m wide. there is an ensuite shower/toilet about 1m by 3m-these details do appear in your brochure. However the toilet door encroaches on the available floor space in... More

We were 4 families with kids and enjoyed every bit of our 2 nights stay at the houseboat. We set out from Melbourne and after about 2.5 hours, we reached Echuca, had our lunch and headed straight to our houseboat. Mr. and Mrs. Grubb operate 3 lines of houseboats (Luxury on the Murray, Perricoota Marina and Simply Irresistible) and we... More

Four of us (two couples) hired a houseboat for a week leaving from Customs House and it was GREAT! Our boat 'Ranger' was a two bedroom, 1 large bathroom, with an extra toilet out the back was wonderful. Plenty of space for relaxing during the day instead of having to go to your bed to read a book! We have... More

Very very disappointing at the price . Being an Aussie and having travelled extensivelly ., was embarrassed as an ambassador for this beautiful country when making conversation with overseas visitors . So overpriced . The cost was 4 times the price per day as sea cruises which are 5 star compared to this 2 star operation . The accomadition has... More

We just love the Murray.. To camp, ski, cabin, anywhere at all. Cobram, Echuca, Albury, Mannun. Grab a boat, a motor home, a JetSki and enjoy The Great Murray!
