Cruise Well Program & Travel Insurance

Your Health and Safety is our Priority

At Murray River Paddlesteamers, your well-being is our foremost concern. Our dedicated crew undergoes thorough training to ensure meticulous hand hygiene and sanitation practices. Upholding the highest standards of cleanliness and safety is our commitment on all our cruises.

While we’ve introduced additional safety measures to protect both guests and staff, rest assured that your onboard experience aboard remains unaltered. As an accredited Covid-ready business certified by NSW Health and ATEC, we have earned recognition from the World Travel & Tourism Council and the Safe Travel global branding for our outstanding health and hygiene protocols. Your safety and enjoyment are at the heart of our commitment to excellence.


In alignment with the updated Australian Government regulations, full vaccination against COVID-19 is no longer mandatory for guests to embark on our cruises. However, Murray River Paddlesteamers strongly encourages all guests to prioritise their health and well-being by receiving full vaccination.

Guests are no longer required to complete the Pre Cruise Health Screening document or undergo temperature checks. While self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 is no longer mandatory, we earnestly advise guests to refrain from cruising if they have tested positive or are currently experiencing symptoms. Our commitment to the safety and comfort of our guests remains unwavering as we navigate these changes in guidelines.
