    Great Murray River Experience

    Thank you for your email. Jill and I returned yesterday from a 2 night trip on the Emmylou . We had a great trip. The saying “ underpromise but over deliver “ applies to your people and our whole experience. Thank you again. My only regret is that we only booked a 2 night trip.....4 nights would have been better . Would I recommend an overnighter .... sure would ! Regards Peter B Berry

    I had a fabulous time whilst on board the Emmylou. I did a 2 night Murray River cruise, & a Boatel the night before. The crew on board were very accommodating, & the food delicious. I would highly recommend this cruise to all my family & friends. Cheryl C
