Very very disappointed in the price we had to pay for a dismal baked dinner and a childish badly scripted slide show! $150 for 2 adults and a child. Dessert was just as poor! Then nothing more than a slideshow of history of Echuca. The...More

We went of lunch cruise and were underwhelmed with the lack of commentary. When the captain did give some it was very terse. The pie was good & there were gluten free options but we could get that in a nearby pub. On the positive...More

We went on a Sunday lunch cruise which was running as a “special” trip for Pride of the Murray as they had a group booking. The boat itself isn’t steam powered but that certainly didn’t bother us and on a day with a bit of...More

We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon cruise on the Pride of the Murray. It's loud, smelly and not the most comfortable ride but that was what it was like when it was a workhorse along the Murray River. Don't let this put you off. The trek...More

Paddlesteamers have paddles and a steam engine. The PotM has paddles and a diesel engine hidden out of sight - making it a paddlediesel. None of that steamy fun some may seek, just a way to propel the boat. The pretend funnel doesn't even continue...More

We went on the NY eve trip with live music. Light finger food provided was very basic- no serving utensils or plates. Limited drink options for purchase and no commentary. Scenery generally dull- muddy river banks and campsites. There are more interesting ways to enjoy...More
