Australia River Cruise - Murray Princess

Recommended Posts

When I was planning this trip I could find very little info about the Murray Princess.  I’m not really in a position right now to write a full length review, but will post a few pics just in case there is any one looking into booking it.  The bottom line is I loved it!  I did the 3 night route B2B with the 4 night to make a 7 night cruise, but that did mean that I repeated some of the route.  It was very different to anything else I’ve ever done and very relaxing.  I was the only non-Aussie on the 1st part and on the 2nd part there was a total of 3 non-Aussies.  I met some lovely people on-board and the crew was amazing!  I’d love to do it again some day!


I’d be happy to answer any specific questions for any one heading down under.

Thanks for the great photos.  I am from Melbourne, Australia and am reasonably ashamed to say that I know very little about this cruise.


It would be wonderful if you could come back when you have more time and give us a little review.


Glad you enjoyed yourself, did you travel during our winter?

We are thinking of this cruise.  

Would love to read a review when/if you have time.  

Thank you for the photos

It was a long time ago, but did short one many years ago, a wonderful trip.

I had a look at the website last night, and it seems quite expensive.  For the top level cabin for a four night cruise it was over $2000 AUD, which is an awful lot of money.  There don't appear to be any private balconies.  There don't appear to be any drinks included, other than tea and coffee.


$4000 per couple for 4 nights is a lot but I will wait and hope that a trip report is forthcoming that might justify the price.  As an example we are paying $10000 for our 7 night Rhine cruise with Scenic in October, but that is totally all inclusive and in a Junior Suite.


This is exactly why we tend to always travel overseas, holidays in Australia are very expensive.
