You’ll receive a Future Cruise Credit for the full value of the amount paid which can be put towards any future cruise fare, and it is valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

Border Closure & Victorian Restrictions

From Thursday 17 September residents living within the 50km border bubble are able to travel within the border region for any reason with a current permit which includes travelling into NSW.  As the river is considered to be NSW waters only persons eligible to hold a Border Region Resident Permit can cruise aboard our boats.  We are actively negotiating with the NSW Government to gain an exemption which we expect to receive shortly. For any guests and cruises that become affected we will be offering a 18 month Cruise Credit from the date of your cruise. For all other cruises, we will continue to monitor the situation and make announcements as restrictions are updated.
