Overnight Stay, Five course dinner
We had an awesome dinner. All of the courses were really delicious. The service was exceptional and the Captain Peter, the waitress and host, Cathy, gave us the best time. We met dale, who was the engine controller and he was very hospitable and knowledgeable. The cabin that we stayed in was comfortable, cool and clean. We slept vert well. It could be even better to have an ensuite in each cabin which we believe is going to happen. The breakfast provided was beautiful, as with the care and service. Will recommend to everyone that loves a bit of country charm and a tour into our Australian past and current times on the Murray River.
