This is the second time we have joined the Emmylou for a lunch cruise and it won't be our last. Lovely two hours spent cruising and eating on the Murray.

A lovely dinner cruise along the Murray made for a very special and memorable experience. The food was also even better than expected and the cruise itself was long enough to enjoy every moment.
