This cruise is under consideration for the second half of 2026
There is no commitment to this cruise – yet. But it looks fairly likely be confirmed
We hope to have a decision in early 2024

This will be a charter cruise exclusively for our group. We will start from a standard 7 night cruise, and customise it to suit our own preferences for itinerary, activities and conference program.

The conference program will be headed by a leading genealogy expert, supported by others.

The Murray Princess is a true inland paddlewheeler built for the Murray River, with a character and charm of yesteryear. It is the largest inland paddlewheeler in the southern hemisphere. Catering for just 120 passengers, she brings the unique advantages of small ship cruising to the remarkable setting of Australia’s outback.

Two options will be available – the same cruise, but an option to add a tour package after:

  • 7 night cruise & conference only
  • 12 Day Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and Murray River Package

Prices including the conference fee, are expected to range from $3400-$3800 per person twin share for the 7 night cruise and $4200-$4600 per person twin share for the cruise tour package

To give you some idea what the cruise might look like, check out the current 7 night upper Murraylands cruise. Our cruise allows us to adapt the itinerary and on-board and land activities as we choose. And, of course, work in a good conference program.

Similarly with the cruise tour package. See the currently offered 12 day cruise/tour package. As with the cruise only option, we will be able to adapt the itinerary and activities to suit our group

NOTE: our recent cruises survey suggests enough interest to more than fill this cruise. If the cruise is confirmed, as seems fairly likely, those interested will need to make an early decision to be sure of a place.
