Your Health and Safety is our Priority

Is it time to reconnect with travel? From bow to stern, we’re taking extra measures to ensure your health and safety when onboard the Emmylou. All crew are trained on appropriate hand hygiene and sanitising practices, and we monitor and maintain these practices to the highest standards on every cruise. While there may be a few additional requirements to protect our guests and staff, your experience on the Emmylou has not changed.  

We are an accredited, Covid-ready business with NSW Health and ATEC, and in addition, we’re recognised by the World Travel & Tourism Council, and the Safe Travel global branding, for our high health and hygiene protocols.


 COVID-19 – From 13th October 2022 

In line with changes made by the Australian Government effective from 13th October, it will NO longer be a requirement to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to cruise aboard PS Emmylou. Murray River Paddlesteamers continues to recommend that all guests are fully vaccinated.  

Guests will no longer have to complete the Pre Cruise Health Screening document and will not be tested for temperature. Whilst it is now not a requirement to self-isolate after testing positive for COVID-19 we recommend guests do not cruise if they have tested positive or have symptoms.    


Travel Insurance

We highly recommend that you take adequate Travel Insurance at least 30 days prior to your departure. Below is a list of the companies that offer very competitive travel insurance that also covers COVID-19.  

Before Your Cruise 

  • The week before your cruise we recommend guests self isolate and avoid high-risk settings where possible.
  • If you cannot cruise due to contracting COVID-19 within 7 days of departure a future cruise credit or refund will not be offered. We ask that you purchase comprehensive travel insurance that includes coverage for this event. The following companies offer very good policies covering this event.
 Please note Murray River Paddlesteamers does not endorse, recommend or earn any rebate or commission from the above companies.
