Make amazing memories on the Murray Princess

A cruise on the PS Murray Princess feels quintessentially Australian from the moment you step aboard. From the spectacular views of earthy limestone cliffs lining the river, to the plethora of amazing birdlife and the traditional outback hospitality you’ll be treated to by crew members, you’ll be glad you’re holidaying in South Australia this year.

Historic three, four- and seven-night cruises start with the ship itself. Finished with polished wood and gold trimmings and featuring two winding staircases and full-length double-storey windows with a view of the giant paddlewheel, the Murray Princess replicates the paddle wheelers of the 1800s that plied the waters of the Murray River and the Mississippi.

The Murray Princess has a timeless elegance with all the charm of yesteryear. It gives you a real taste of a bygone era yet with the convenience you’d expect today with features like a lift for accessibility, air-conditioned cabins and onboard Wi-Fi. Hosting just 120 guests, the PS Murray Princess offers relaxed, informal small ship cruising through this iconic outback river landscape.

Exploring your own backyard has many advantages. Uncover layers of Australian history with onshore tours to townships dotted along the river and significant landmarks such as the Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Conservation Park with a guided tour from the Nganguraku people, the first inhabitants of this area. You’ll also get a glimpse into how farmers and producers in the region deal with the challenges of life on the land.

Food is another highlight of the cruise. Indulge in a hearty hot buffet breakfast each morning, a delicious two-course or buffet lunch each day and a three-course or buffet dinner each evening. To say you won’t starve on the Murray Princess is an understatement! There’s also a spectacular farewell Captain’s Buffet Dinner and Dance with a seafood feast to remember.
